As a sixth-generation Texan, I can understand the trepidation about MN winters. That said, sort of like riding it's a lot about the gear, and the rest is a mix of skills & attitude. When I first moved up here I met some experienced folks and started doing winter camping. It's not for the fearful, and there are a lot of skills to learn to do it well, but the bottom-line of spending substantial time outdoors in sub-freezing or sub-zero temps is that if you're cold, you're not doing it right.
