I would like to try winter camping. What are some common mistakes first-timers make when trying to camp in the cold?
I would be camping in temperatures between 0 and 32 Fahrenheit (-17 to 0 degrees Celsius). The climate would tend to be dry and cold, temperatures consistently below freezing, unlikely to encounter anything but snow as precipitation.
I have a 4-season tent and a 0°F synthetic bag that is old, so it's more like a 32°F (0°C) bag.
