i went winter camping a couple years ago. It was a last minute thing. I grabbed hotdogs and ketchup, and we went into the woods with:
-small travel shovel
-a small axe
-2 pairs of snow shoes
We left around noon (it took about 20 mins to decide) and went to a location. We were three guys. Two of us starting piling snow, while the other
started on cutting wood. After making snow cave, two of us helped the other bring the wood to the site. We had to dig down to the ground for the
fire,. Anyone who knows forest in winter, the snow was about 5 feet high. We used this "hole" to pile onto snow pile to make cave.
It took most of the day to prepare sleeping arrangments, and the firewood.
Fun night, in the end we decided that if we had to, we could totally do it again. We also learned cooperation since, it took the three of us to make
camp and collect firewood, but we did not get food. Sure we brought some, but if we didnt we would have had to have less wood, inorder to have food.
Cooperation is the key to survival.
Just wondering "where" in Quebec you went, seeing as its in my neighborhood.
