    Camping In The Snow

    Camping at Lake Louise Alberta. Beautiful weather,calm and about 35 F. Lots of snow in the campground but the way down was pretty dry until we got about half hour from the campground. Great steak supper and a couple of brews and all is well.

    Very nice, C.L.

    Makes me miss my camper. Wife and I were taking about buying another.

    Have fun. Don't over exert yourself.

    I have to hand it to you Canadians. I'll bet you could have fun even in hades. The steak and the beer look good, but camping in the snow for me is something akin to waterboarding. Now here's my idea of camping; an evening at the beach in San Juan Puerto Rico, a room at a nice resort, a Rum and Coke any my wife of 50 years.

    I agree 2lane and we just put a deposit down on a camper. When I saw carvel's pic of his dinner, I thought yum and I always like to see pics of the lil loafer. But when I saw the pic of Mrs. Carvel sitting at the snow table, I thought better them than me! Enjoy your time away carvel loafers.

    Looks like a nice day in the snow. I camped there several times in the early 70's minus the snow. Gizma has got nothing on you guys as far as dinner menus go. I would definitely eat at your diner compared to Gizma's on a shingle special.

    Had an overnighter in the mountains while in boot camp. Mountains get cold at night. First time in my life (20 years old at the time) that I knew where every bone in my body was because every one was cold. Didn't know we had so many bones. Glad you're enjoying your camping but I'm one of the ones that says...better you then me.

    Back when I was an adventurous youth we would backpack into snow country and sleep on space blankets on the snow. We would wrap a hot rock from the campfire in a towel and put it in our sleeping bag to stay warm. I really thought it was fun back then. Now I like to sit in front of the woodstove with a cold one and watch the snow fall OUTSIDE!

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Looks like a great time!

    What is the length of the Lil Loafer?

    Sure hope you didn't have to shovel the area to clear out the dinner / fire pit area as that looks like it could have been a project. I showed Mrs. Bear the picture of your wife by the fire and my wife replied "She even looks happy!" Which is to say that Mrs. Bear wouldn't be in those snow conditions. I think your trip looks like a good time. Plus you guys know how to eat.

    A couple of years ago, I was riding my Harley, pulling a small fold down camper behind it and I was in the Jackson, Wyoming areas and then went onto Yellowstone in the 2nd week of May. I was one of just a handful of riders on a motorcycle in Yellowstone that time of year. One night, I woke up and felt especially cold and noticed the tent portion of the trailer right above me was bowed down. I unzipped the door and was surprised to find about 6" of new snow everywhere.

    I had a Deluxe version of the Time Out Camping trailer, which is a really nice unit. Even being 6'4" tall, there is plenty of room for standing up and the bed was queen sized. The trailer is well made and easy to set up and has a surprising amount of room for it's folded down size. The bed is separate from the floor and "living area" which is nice because I had a table set up in there with two folding chairs and we could play cards or watch TV when the weather was poor. Here is a link to their website, they are out of Elkhart, Indiana.

    There is absolutely no way I could talk Mrs. Bear into camping, let along snow camping. Heck, I couldn't even get her to ride a snowmobile. She would always just wave and say "have a great time", which I did...........

    Stay safe and enjoy your trip! Bet you had your pick of the campsites, well, at least from the one's which were near the plowed road.
