Kevin Callan is here, it’s time to go winter camping!
Canada’s Happy Camper, our friend Kevin Callan, author of the new Complete Guide to Winter Camping joins us on this podcast with his welcoming way of sharing his knowledge of the woods in winter. You’ll see right away how Kevin has earned the name “happy camper”, he’s a passionate, devoted outdoorsman.
Whether it’s your first or 101st winter camping trip you’ll find the guide a fantastic resource. Kevin draws on a lifetime of experience and compiles the expert advice of many other seasoned winter campers and explorers.
As you’ll hear us discuss ideal winter camping begin when the thermometer hits freezing and well below. The guide presents shelter, clothing, and sleep system options, and teaches you how to venture into the “paradise below zero” safely. Learn how to track animals, check ice thickness, make white pie tea and enjoy in comfort, rather than survive, the wintery world waiting for you.
