I'm planning to travel to the northwest woods this winter for short camping. I'm doing some research regarding that is anyone has any tips for the winter camping I would love to hear. This is some information I got from this article here.

What bike will you be riding?

Coincidentally, I was gifted this M/C camping trailer 2 days ago! Sleeps 2IMG_7442.JPG

I can tell you what not to bring; Cheese. I took my BSA 441 into the country and hiked way back into a canyon and set up a tent in the Winter in Northern Cali (near the coast). All night long these mice and rats were fighting over the 3 Lb. block of Tillamook Sharp Cheddar that I planned to live on for a bit. They even got into a big tussle right on my chest as I lay in my bag attempting to sleep. I put a little cheese in the palm of an outstretched hand and pretended to go to sleep. I could feel the little whiskers against my fingertips but I was just not fast enough to grab the little bastards to squeeze the life out of one and make an example out of him.

Other than that I would say that a good and well tested tent and bag is the main concern. I just used a cheap pup-tent for years and camped all over the West. I even jumped freight trains to see where they were going. Fun times. -BA
