I am a novice at snow trekking, tents, sleeping in it, etc.?
I have a lot of questions and would like advice on how best to approach it.
First step for myself and my partner is sleeping in a tent, tarp, or shelter comfortably in 0 F to 32 F nights.
Second is taking the tent, tarp or whatever works on a short Xcountry ski, mukluk, or snow shoe trek and then succesfully setting up a camp, cooking, staying dry and warm, and returning. We live in an environment where we can leave our house and camp within a 1/2 mile or so in Forest Service lands on Hat Creek in N. California.
Next step is going on the National Forest lands at Lassen on fairly establish snow shoe trails ... I want to do it in mukluks because I am new to them and they are wonderful, warm. Just great things to use.
So if anyone wants to take a novice under their wing I am ready to listen and do.
