Winter Camp Reflection
Winter camping was a great experience and so much fun. Even though I didn't sleep very much that night i still had a good time.
My group did very well at hollowing out our quinzhee considering we did it all in one day. Another thing we did well at was our meal plan. We made hot dogs over the fire and marshmallows for dessert and some snacks for inside the quinzhee. Covering up our tunnel wasn't a problem either we piled all of our bags in front of the hole so the wind couldn’t get in. Although not every thing we did went well, our platform was slightly slanted. We kept sliding down it during the night. Getting threw our tunnel and into our quinzhee was another problem. We made the tunnel ceiling to low and we had to turn to get into our quinzhee. Which caused us to bang our heads a lot.
If you are planning to build a quinzhee i recommend that you pile up lots of snow so you can have a tall ceiling. Nothing is worse than banging your head on the ceiling when you are trying to leave. Another thing is to make sure your have warm sleeping bags and blankets for when you are going to go to sleep. you don’t want to be kept up all night by the cold. Finally don’t make your meal plan something complicated. You want something fast and simple.
