Video Script

Hi, I’m Randall. I’m up here in the mountains going snow camping. My daughter’s behind me, and most people don’t think of camping in the snow. However, you can see over to this side we have our shelter set up. It’s important that you have the proper type of sleeping bags. Sometimes, a liner is very useful. Also, behind me you see we have a fire. In the canyon where we are camping, you need to have a permit to camp. Otherwise, uh, you might be fined, and the camping permit only costs . . . well, zero dollars. We have food going on behind us, and we’re looking forward to an interesting and fun evening out in the wild.
