Maybe you missed the part where the iron rod went through my skull...
And left me with this perpetual wink.

Classic Sero humor.

Man you are the master of harvesting useable firewood in winter. That's quite a stash.

Thanks Pauly but I’d give that honor to Bioguide.
I try to keep it simple & not everyone needs an axe or a hot tent to enjoy winter camping in remote locations off the beaten path. ...

Sometimes it does get a little chilly, and you need to stoke up the campfire a bit (with dead & downed wood only of course)...

No wind makes the difference for me, I think. I've been more comfortable at -10 than 25 if there's no wind. Wind chill can suck the life right out of you. I do like the feeling of being impervious to weather though. I'm still looking for a pair of good warm gloves. I'm beginning to think that "gloves" and "warm" are mutually exclusive. I've been tempted to try some of those fingerless "flip mittens."

Winter always reminds me of this passage from Watership Down:

“Many human beings say that they enjoy the winter, but what they really enjoy is feeling proof against it. For them there is no winter food problem. They have fires and warm clothes. The winter cannot hurt them and therefore increases their sense of cleverness and security.”

Agreed, the wind can be brutal sometimes, but sometimes it can also make you feel like you’re flying...

I think my favorite winter lean-to trip was at the forked lake lean to, one early februrary probably ten years ago. Woke up at dawn to lightly falling snow, and before I moved, I got to see a procession of about 9 or 10 deer just walking by in single file, maybe 25 feet away completely unaware that we were there. It was beautiful and incredibly peaceful.

Should we all breathe a sigh of relief and be glad the picture doesn't show up?

Weird how you see the other photos, but not that one?
Oh well, just more winter firewood fun.

There it is! I can see it now. There's always that moment the night before when you're thinking, "Should I save some of this wood for the morning?" I usually cave and burn it all.
