I'm with you. If we are dry camping in Fall/Winter we look for a forecast
high of at least upper 40s or better with some SUN!
Night lows aren't that much of an issue if it's gonna hit those highs the
lows will likely be 20s.
That makes for GREAT hiking. No ticks, no face gnats, few other
people, your boots crunching on the dry leaves, NO other sounds......
We often look for a "balmy" February weekend with the above temps
in the forecast and head out to a nearby (hours drive) park.
Hoosier National Forest is a little over an hour from us and we've
camped there in the winter when there were only 2 or 3 other sites
in the whole place occupied.
That is QUIET.
They have added electric hookups so there will be a few more folks
in Winter but we can run our heater all we want and no worry
about draining the batteries.
I'm not a winter person but just thinking about the woods has me
looking forward to our next trip already!
I've read messages lately about folks having taken their last
trip or getting ready to do so.
We are liable to go somewhere ANY month of the year with just
a little help from the weather service!
Brushing our teeth with water from a jug and eating on paper plates
for a couple nights is part of all season camping!!
See ya on the trail!
