I'm going solo winter camping for the first time tomorrow. I am an experienced camper but I've never gone out alone. There aren't any dangerous animals to worry about in the area I will be in but I'm worried about the irrational fears that strike people in the woods. Any tips for not getting totally spooked out on solo trips?

Inb4 stop being a pussy. The woods are spooky at night and I'm not afraid to admit it. Take your quasi macho BS elsewhere. I don't give a shit about adhering to anyone's ideal of masculinity except for my own.

Also, what's your favorite thing to do while solo camping? I plan to spending most of my time hunting small game.

Bring a book or a porn mag. both helps. Bring an mp3 with your favorites. A bit of Scotch is also a good idea.

I have these thoughts too, but trust me when you're actually out there miles from anything, you kind of learn to get on with it. First night is always the worst though.

Pack a .45 ACP and rest easy.

I'd say dont ruin the experience with things like music/phone(/porn mag). Instead give yourself tasks to do, like finding the best spot to camp, setting up camp, collecting firewood and lighting fire with a striker and cooking your food. Bring pen and paper write about your day, your thoughts and actions. Bring stuff like tea and tobacco.
When im sleeping in the woods by myself I take it slow and try to suck in what I am experiencing. This way just brewing and drinking a cup of tea and stuffing and smoking my pipe afterwards can entertain me for hours.

I've only been totally freaked out three times by animals. The first time it was a buck in rut. He was not happy with my tent. The second was a very large bird flying right over my head and screeching at me in total darkness near a large body of water. Bears are usually after food, but there's little to stop them at leetos in public campsites. I had them in there thumping around and lifting up my sleeping bag to get at ramen I spilled.

They have zero respect, so be smart.
