Description

The Happy Camper is back! This time Kevin Callan is equipping campers with all they need to know about how to have fun in the great winter outdoors.

Complete Guide to Winter Camping is the only book on the market that will educate readers on both hot tenting and cold tenting.

Cold tenting -- without a heat source -- has been long considered the only way to winter camp. But Kevin Callan says that "hot tenting", or camping with a small stove in the tent, is a safe and fun way to camp in the winter elements. You're careful -- and you're warm!

Complete Guide to Winter Camping covers nearly every aspect of snow and ice fun and safety. Advice on setting up shelter to choosing a sleep system and warm clothing, gives readers the knowledge to outfit themselves properly to enjoy winter. And with chapters on how to track animals, check ice thickness, operate a snowmobile and catch a fish while ice fishing, the Happy Camper ensures you'll have a good time once you're all bundled up!

Complete with photos and expert advise from other seasoned winter campers and explorers, this book will appeal equally to car-camping families and adventurous individuals looking to extend their outdoors activities into another season.

Editorial Reviews

If you've never been Winter Camping before then this book is the perfect chance to hop aboard and discover what it's all about... I highly recommend this book to anyone whether you are just curious about extending your camping season past the shoulder seasons to venturing out into the dense backcountry in the dead of winter. The personal tips from both Kevin and the contributors are well appreciated. This book will help you on your way to enjoying more of the year outdoors and hopefully you too will continue the social gathering online and in person with other campers to learn more and share your Winter Camping experiences.
