Hey y'all, I'm gonna be heading out next weekend to hike and camp overnight in the woods of NH. Thing is, I have to pack light as hell, as I'll be carrying my gear the whole time, and Ill need my hands free.
I put together a basic bag of things I imagine I would desperately need. But I have two main issues:
> 1. I don't have enough space for a tent or a good sleeping bag, which means I have to downgrade to a thick felt blanket, but still have no solution for my tent.
> 2. This is my first time camping in the winter, and my first time camping with only the things I can carry on my back. So I'm positive I'm missing something important.
The items I have so far are:
> a cooking set contained within one pot
> a water bottle
> a hatchet, saw, and knife
> A thick felt blanket and towel
> an extra sweater if I me or a buddy needs more layers
> an assortment of small things like a flashlight, lighter, multi tool, and fire starters.
> and spare gloves and socks, plus a hat/ski mask.
I'm leaving out food for now but I have plenty of space for at least a day or two of food, which is all I need.
And I will be wearing cold winter appropriate clothing.
My main question for you all is, how do I solve my tent problem, and what am I missing besides food and a tent?
