We shoveled the snow out of an area ,covered the area with pine balms ,placed a tarp over the pine balms then pitched our tent on top of the tarp. We ate lots of food which was high in fat / calories.
Drank lots of water and avoided alcohol or caffeinated drinks. Having the right equipment is essential. such as wool or down fiiled clothing ,Sorrel boots , long underwear ,and good sleeping bag
with a ground pad. We brought several sets of long underwear on the trip -One set for daytime activities and a set to sleep in. Sunny , calm days were actually nice for outdoor activities but on cloudy windy & cold days more time was spent inside the tent. I worked as a construction electrician
so I was used to working outside in the winter so winter camping was not a difficult adjustment.
