Trip Introduction:
5 guys and a winter adventure!


This will be more of a video report of our Winter Camping trip to Angleworm Lake. For the days we had highs in the mid 20's and the lowest temp for the trip was -17F. Overall we had great weather! There was a fair amount of slush under the snow but as long as you stayed on the lake trail it was fine. I wanted to show in the video that Winter Camping is not just "work" and "freezing weather", I hope that comes through. Don't get me wrong, we had plenty of work, but we also had a blast doing it. I hope you enjoy it.
