its always a challenge in the winter, iv only done it a few times (cn t.o <> van) in the dead of winter, probably the coldest -30C for 4 day IM, nearly lost me feet.. some people do it in the winter round -50C.
if your geared to fuck, and your cotton clothing doesnt get wet your fine. i like rendering a bunch of animal fat anything i can dumpster or find roadkill find and go with a few jars of it, a tablespoon is instantaneous warmth.
im always happy about wintercoming a bit more so then summer,
gives a good reset, kills all the narly bacteria that festered all summer everywhere, no fuckin mosquitoes, no more staph laying around moist squats..
summers got its viable parts, for people who dont like the cold and like to grow food i suppose.the main aspect i like bout summer is bein able to swim in freshwater mountain rivers and makin homebrew

best part is there's nowhere near as many riders in the winter. all the 15yr old scumfuck runaways go south! and the bull just wants to sit in his office, drink coffee and download porn!

oh yeah, and theres the scenery of course...

I'm going to New Zealand for most of the winter, Nov-Feb. and it's going to be summer there. Beat nature's system!

Last winter I hitchhiked through NorCal and Oregon. Rained a lot, but had tons of fun. Bring a winter coat and an umbrella, good sleeping bag, tarp. You're set.

Palm Springs is good in the winter, rarely rains, and camping in the desert is great. SoCal is recommended in general.

pending.
I'll be in Florida for the majority of the winter. I leave on the 11th, and probably heading into Tallahasee, but I plan on spending a lot of time in Gainesville.

If anyone in FL wants to chill, send me a private message or whatever its called.

Hell, when you are on your way to SF, if you're passing through Fresno or that area, I'll go along from there.

i ran away last winter, ahaha, i walked from my house all the way down southside chi-town cuz i figured the more south i go the warmer it gets, with like 3 sweaters, a vest, and a giant ass motherfucking coat, ahaha.
felt fine with smirnoff, then passing out in the park in fucking southholland suburbs was scare ass shit in 2 in the morning. my drunkass freaked and called the cops.
from there im stuck in a psych hospital for a month and a half.
