  • Taking My Boys Snow Camping.

    Good by world. Off to go snow camp in an Ez-up with some heaters. Should be some awesome sledding hills. My boys are 10 and 8 and they love the cold. I swear their not mine sometimes. Here are a couple pictures from the last few trips. Ill post new ones when I get back.

    Your braver than I am, I only snow camp if I'm FORCED to. And then I'm probably sleeping in my truck.

          They would only get used 1 or 2 times a year.

              Love camping in winter, no skeeters and it's sooooo quiet. When I was a Scoutmaster I think me and the dads enjoyed more then the boys that were going. Hell we would burn 4-6 ricks of wood on the 3 day weekend to stay warm and cook. Enjoy the times.

                Looks like a blast. BTW Where abouts you camping? They're predicting 2 - 5 feet of snow above 7000ft and 50 a 110 mph gusts on the peaks this weekend. Don't end up on the news!

                Be safe and have fun.

                  Came back a day early. Burnt to much firewood last night. Camp is at 5500ft. It was 27F last night and today. Snowed on us all day with blizzard conditions while we sledded. Made a smart choice to come home tonight. Had a blast. Made it to 6500ft in the truck last night missing around. Anyways Ill get pictures tomorrow.

                      What Smokes said.. You're a good dad. Good thing you came back early too.. It's pissing down here now in Alameda, I'm sure it is up in Sonoma, so it must be crazy in the mountains.

                        Dry right now. It had been snowing since about 7am tell we left. Our heaters could not keep the snow melted off the ez-ups. Fast enough. They would not hhace made it through another night. But last night was perfect. No wind and stayed right at 27-30f and big fire

                          We camped at 5500 feet and had a foot of snow on the grounds. Normally we get to watch all the stupid people try and come up the mountain but not a sigle person made it to us. We had the best sledding hill to ourselves.

                            We camp in Mendocino National Forest. Right on the main road called M1 on Hull Mountain. North of Lake Pillsbury.

                                  Nice... I was thinking Sierras. This looks much cooler, fewer people in that no mans land part of Nor Cal [in a good way]. I'll have to get my butt up there in the summer; looks like there could be some good riding.

                                          Yah, click on the [A] on the right, then click on the icon that looks like a film strip. But you'll have to host it somewhere like YouTube.
