I never new you could use Tupperware as an animal proof food storage container…I guess i'll need a -15F bag for all my trips, too! The sad part is that over 8000 people have viewed this video and probably took it as gospel.

Oh, and did you know that black bears can run up to 35 mph?"
Great way to end the video.Apr 3, 2011 at 8:30 pm #1719583
What was that?! Wow. Was that really intended to be helpful or scare people off? Bet they don't make it 1/2 mile from the parking lot.Apr 3, 2011 at 9:03 pm #1719600
Love her carrying all her stuff with no pack. And hiking in wellies.Apr 4, 2011 at 9:47 am #1719757
I don't think she packed enough water.Apr 4, 2011 at 10:20 am #1719784
Remember, this is "How to pack for a camping trip" not what to bring on a backpacking trip. Most of us do our "camping" 10 miles from the nearest highway. I think the goal here was being able to walk 100 yards from your vehicle and have what you need…

Get a load of this related video…"how to pick a campsite". I love the guy hiking with the hatchet.

MSN is just a wealth of camping knowledge:Apr 4, 2011 at 10:43 am #1719796
are these both made by the same people?
1. "especially when camping at high elevation, it can get very cold at night. bring a sleeping bag rated to at least -15* F"
2. "remember that hot air rises, so pick a campsite at higher elevation so that it will be warmer at night."
I paraphrase, but you get my point.

This is not entirely silly. In our Alpine region the valleys are often grass-lands, while the hills are tree-covered. That is because the cold air sinks into the valleys, creating what we call 'frost-hollows'. They are so cold that trees can't grow there.
Camping at the bottom of one of these valleys can be a chilly experience – I know! In fact, I have some photos of an open frost-covered valley with the frost cutting out just a little up the surrounding hillsides.

Yeah, I also got firsthand experience with cold valleys when I hiked the Superstitions in Arizona during winter.
Ice, frost, and very damp/cold air. Made for a rather uncomfortable night, actually. Our very windy hilltop camp the night before was much more enjoyable.Apr 5, 2011 at 2:34 pm #1720486
I think my Mac is allergic to bing videos. Or theyre down at the moment.Apr 6, 2011 at 9:36 pm #1721221

I'd camp with her =)
…and didn't he wash his hands in the same body of water that was just warned against in the previous vid?
I guess these videos are here to remind all of us just how NEAT nature is =)Apr 9, 2011 at 6:56 pm #1722564
Ya Id camp with her too ;) if you packed all that stuff you would have a base weight of like 50lbs lol that sleeping bag was HUGE bahaha this vid made my dayApr 10, 2011 at 12:00 am #1722648
I loved the big box of kitchen matches, (about a 3 year supply) and the C-cell batteries. Also "know where you are going to camp". Gee, I am in the New Mexico desert? I packed a -15 degree bag for Alaska!Apr 10, 2011 at 12:15 am #1722650
Dude, that's not funny. You never know if it'll get down to -15F in the middle of summer in New Mexico. Just gotta be prepared. Sometimes I take a -30 just in case…
