« … And this weekend there really is no time, but it’s no use thinking about that now, the boots sink into the snow, the pack resting heavily on the back and in your hand you hold a child. We leave the small road and go into the night. Straight pines slide out from the black and into the light of the headlamps. When the cloud cover for a moment opens up, the moon peeks through, orange, half-covered by Earth’s shadow: the lunar eclipse.»
Winter camping in winter with children need not be a huge, insurmountable project. An extra sleeping bag, a thick mattress, warm clothing and boots. The adventure is waiting right out there.
