Even though we knew we’d be beginning our adventures during the colder months, we thought to combat the weather with layers of clothing and our Little Buddy Heater. We knew snow might very well be in our future but we didn’t take into the account how bad cold, clear nights would be. For the most part, we did very well. Mobility was impaired but not very badly and we almost got away with it, too. If it wasn’t for the cold front that hit us in Gila National Forest (NM).
