    "I never get the big one I'm looking for" trust me you don't want a lot of snow when camping in a tent lol. I lived in a tent for an entire winter in an area that normally gets 200 inches of snow on average in a season. The winter i spent outside that season we got 278 inches. Midway through January the snowpack was so deep around the tent that from a distance my tent look like it was 20 inches tall. I literally had to walk down three stairs l made of snow at the tent entrance just to get inside. My 4 season tent would start to buckle due to snow load and would require constant maintenance throughout the night to prevent a collapse.. String three or four of those nights in a row and it becomes a real burden. I guess l just don't get way someone would choose to intentionally camped in a snowstorm๐Ÿ˜Œ. My 7 months living on the Canadian border made me realize how nice i had it living in a warm home. Shout out to the upstate NY homeless community in the snowbelts never give up!

    Luke if you get a cheap insulated lunch bag you can throw a hand warming packet in there with your camera batteries and your stove fuel to keep them at an optimal temperature.

    He is nothing like Survivor man, who is the most depressing dude I have ever watched. I enjoy watching survival video's, but I noticed that I learned a few things after watching his shows, but I also felt depressed. First rule of survival is a can do attitude.

    I can't help myself. I MUST quote from the 21 century visionary, musician, Renaissance man, comic and overall great guy, Frank Zappa, 'Watch out where those huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow'.

    Luke, I realize that this is an older video, however, would you have felt just as confident in this storm using the Litefighter II system, using the cold weather kit that can be had with it?

    Hey Luke. Thanks so much for all of your videos. Question: Do you ever take a radio (AM/FM/Weather Band) with you on your hikes? If so what's your favorite?

    @40:50 The "fun part" of breaking down the tent and packing it away is doing so with the wind blowing at whatever speed!

    As someone who's done winter training in the Norwegian army; there's no exception to the "no sweat" theory. In - 35c when moving we would dress down to just our netting underneath our uniforms. As long as there's no heavy downfall or heavy winds you could basically move around with just your baselayer.Just a tip.
