comment Is buying an expensive sleeping bag better?
I had a similar experience like you once. I believe at the morning I had first degree frostbite on the toes and fingers (and frost on the sleeping bag, 10C in the day drops below zero at dawn). Those $10 bags are for the beech.

comment How do you fashion a spear with a fixed blade
I concur. BTW it is strange how many videos and web pages are out there, detailing in length how you should sharpen a stick. lol

comment How to set up a tent in deep snow
Unfortunately I will not be able to accept and answer before snow falls and I go try it, to see if lying on the snow is colder than lying on cold ground.

comment Cooking over a fire
I was told no fire is good for cooking - always use the embers for cooking. I do not follow this advice, but agree that food gets more tasty that way. Also +1, great question!

comment Do I need to worry about snow covering up my tent?
I have heard warnings that snow may pile up and brake the poles that hold the tent. Is this the significant risk, or is it silent suffocation?

comment Buying a Backpacking Knife
The $10 knife I purchased this summer has served me for cutting food for half a month, and cutting branches the thickness of my arm six times (plus then carving them) and is in excellent shape. I guess a Cold Steel fixed blade would hold out maybe in times longer. So ... how much more? Another thought - "light&small" and "not dullable" are conflicting requirements - hard blades need to be either bulky or ... soft, so they do not snap.

I think "how to make it", "what to use it for and what not for" and "how to use it" are one atomic question.
