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 - 32 Fahrenheit (-17 - 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-degree F synth bag that is old so it's more like a 32-degree (0 degrees C) bag.
