Hi folks. I live in sw wisconsin and looking to get away for a bit. Plan on setting off in early December. I have never been on a extended camping trip before. Just weekends on the sandbars of the Mississippi.
A little info about me. I am 43, average shape, in good health, and will be traveling solo.
Being new to this, I am having a hard time on deciding on where to go. Willing to drive pretty much anywhere. Camping style I am sure dictates destinations. And camping near my car at a traditional campsite will no doubt be part of my trip, but I really want to get off the beaten path. I am willing to hike or for that matter paddle to get to were I need to go.
Also, Looking to buy and new tent and sleeping bag. I have been searching and reading reviews. There seems to be a ton of quality tents. A 3 person tent seems be what I should go with. But should I get a 3 or 4 season. I don't plan on winter camping this year, but it will happen. It seems a good quality tent runs somewhere runs between $250ish to $500ish, and I don't really want to buy two tents. (or do I?) I seem to find mixed opinions on the subject on varies websites. Any thoughts?
I am also open to any suggestions on equipent or advice on any subject for that matter.
Thank you for your time, Jeff
