    In true Canadian Spirit, we took the Boy Scouts out camping this weekend. Yeah, ok, it was -29 but heck, what's a little cold??

    There are very few pictures as it was a wee bit chilly to be worrying about the camera but these set the mood.

    We started by building snow shelters, slept in them, and then spent 8 hours Sunday downhill skiing. All in all a fun time really. I took three of my daughters but only one is in the pictures as she and I shared a snow shelter.

    When I was a kid working my way towards earning the Eagle Scout award, we had an annual winter camping trip that we called "the Icicle". Your photo brings back memories of frozen toes and gallons of hot chocolate.

    Oddly enough, it wasn't really that cold at all. The coldest part was when you had to go to the bathroom! :eek: We slept nice and warm and the snow is MUCH softer than the regular old ground to sleep on!

    It still looks terrible. I have heard that it's possible to stay warm in a snow hut but still...it LOOKS awful!

    Give me a nice, warm HOTEL any day...

    (Spoken from one who hasn't camped in 25 years! But if you like it...)
