Happy new year!!
It actually wasn't too bad after it got drunk out. Probably helped having my husky to snuggle in the tent with. All in all, wicked night! Wish I could have gotten further up the trail, the snow was just too thick.

Awesome! 25.....I think that's -3 for us?? It's always good to warm up a layer of clothes one at a time, otherwise your body isn't working hard enough to warm up all those layers while sleeping. Fire helps LOL ,did ya ketch anything??

Yes.. caught around 20 trout in the 2 days we were there, camp fire would have been nice but the rangers made us put it out, they said you couldn't have a fire going if you were sleeping..

Its sandwiched right between -2 and -3.

Winter outtings are the best, as long as you can sleep while well insulated from the ground!

If you're cold when you're sleeping - you need to get a good rated sleeping system, and DON'T wear a bunch of clothes while sleeping. The good systems are designed to retain, and reflect the heat back at you, so if you wear layers, its retaining your heat in them and not letting the sleeping bag work its magic. Just stick a set of clothing in around your feet to stay warm to avoid the goose bumps in the morning, and stick rest in a stuff sack and use them as a pillow

And the Rangers were smart to call off an unmonitored camp fire. Like you Canadians, us Minnesotan's do a lot of camping. While we have plenty of fires, we don't watch tens to hundreds of thousands of acres burn every year like they do during California's "Forest fire season". That being said, the last two major fires in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Quetico were caused by unattended/poorly extinguished camp fires. They destroyed massive areas of the park.

I totally agree with safe fire practices and don't encourage leaving fires unattended at all!!! I was just saying that it would have been nice to be able to sleep next to one. I have been a fire fighter for 8 1/2 years and know that fires in snow don't travel very far, especially if you take the responsibility of keeping it in an open area with no risk of exposures such as trees, bushes and other combustibles.
I totally understand where you are coming from. We also deal with stupid hikers causing fires on the trail behind our town and it makes me very angry that people are so disrespectful and careless.
