Last night I was sleeping outside in a tent with 2 friends! I have never slept in a tent during winter before, never put up a tent in snow, but it was great! We did not go on a trip, the tent was up just behind our barrack. I just wanted to test my new sleeping bag, so I didn´t want to go far away incase some one was freezing. But we had no problems of being too cold, an my sleeping bag was super comfortable! I think I will be very happy with it =) But if was not cold during the night, only about -5 Celcius/ 24 Fahrenheit. So I have to test it again if it gets colder, because in April I am going on a field excursion where we are sleeping in tents!
It was very comfortable this night, I only woke up a few times because my nose was a little bit cold. And it was really great to sleep with such fresh air! Hehe, but it was a lot of wind during the night, the tent was kind of noisy =P And luckily no human, reindeer or polar-bear triggered our tripwire, so we could sleep tight =)
And there was Northern Lights outside! Not a lot, but it was still really nice to watch while we put up the tripwire! This was my 3 time seeing it up here, but I am still waiting to experience a big one. I hope it will come soon!
