@WedaPashi getting two new replacements tomorrow, different model but designes by the same guy. They will then collect the old ones next week. So we will get the weekend to test them out. Very excited! I really want to get out on the water again.
We'll be camping at Yellowstone for a week. What solutions are there to get weather forecasts?
I am aware of:
NOAA weather radio: would prefer to avoid if there's anything better because it's bulky and costly (for something that's only used this once and only works in the US)

On a recent winter backpacking trip there was some confusion and danger of separation of the group.
The group had not walked together before. Some members were not very experienced, while others were quite fit.
The group separated several times, during night time. Later days there were fogs.
@WedaPashi most shelters you can build depend a lot on your surroundings... you often see a lot of... Eeyores House... type structures in UK forests as it's quite common to get a branch that has grow horizontally. We used to make these are Girl Guides and on school teambuilding weeks.

@WedaPashi hope that answer explains that kinda shelter, if not the video should! I'd say most kids in the UK could build a lean to for a single night and be ok - if they can't their parents need to damn well teach them how!
I wanted to add an image but my work PC didn't seem to want to :(

new combinations of them. Moreover, there are route ...
