I was reading on someone doing a winter camping event, and thought to myself, at my age (40's) with back problems, I'll probably never get to the point of doing an overnight - even a "glamping" version on purpose. (I am planning to do more tent only overnights in the other 3 seasons and the most "roughing it" I'd do- in the winter season- would probably be in a primative cabin). I came to this forum initially out of my interest in "prepping" and of course a big topic is getting home - which is my most likely emergency situation. I work 14 miles drive from my office, and live in a suburban area. with several residential areas in between. I got to wondering about my "get home bag" which currently serves dual purpose as my bushcraft bag as well. I realized that, in winter, I don't see how I'd do well trying to get any rest on a freezing overnight, walking home in a suburban area. Have any of you thought, given the above particular, or a similar situation, that a more common sense approach might be to prepare to walk through the night? I understand the warnings about doing so in the woods, since there are enumerable unfamiliar pitfalls, but if I'm walking sidewalks or streets, less unknowns. My biggest thing would be good walking clothes/shoes, and lots of headlamp energy. I just wonder if others thought about this, and how your preparations would change if this were the better alternative then trying to bed down in freezing weather overnight?
