Itching to get out into the wilderness and unwilling to wait for the spring thaw that waits in the distant, foggy future? Don’t fret; apparently winter camping is a thing. Outdoor enthusiast Alan Goodridge will be leading an information session on this hair-on-chest-putting activity for the truly hardy among us. If you can get past the crippling cold and the long nights, the advantages of winter camping are manifold: snow is super comfy to sleep on, the backwoods are completely empty of people, and you can pitch a tent pretty much anywhere. Neat! The workshop takes place at the AC Hunter Library in the Arts & Culture Centre on February 23 at 7pm. Admission is free. Call 737-3950 to register.
