I'm the only one that hates winter apparently

    My least favorite season is upon us now, winter. Apparently I'm the only one that despises the cold and wishes summer would get here like yesterday. To me cold is under 70 degrees and under 60 means heavy jackets and long-johns plus the heat blasting.

    In full disclosure I grew up in south Florida where winter doesn't exist and also being a small thin guy with like 1% body fat sure doesn't help.

    Any other warm weather fans out there? I can't be the only one!

    I like winter, as long as I'm not working outside.

    But I'm from Winnipeg. Your idea of winter is much different than mine.

    You live in Florida and Texas and you can't wait until summer? Dude, you must have spent last July and August indoors because walking out of the house felt like stepping into a kiln.
  4. No, you're not the only one.

    I don't like the cold weather either. I'm not into any of the winter sports and see the snow as something that just has to be moved. This comes from a life time north easterner too. I can take the heat better than the cold. As a narcissistic I don't mind the above average weather we are having. :D

    I'm in New Hampshire and I hate the winter. Aside from the holidays there is nothing good about it....cold weather, snow, dry chapped hands.. My favorite season is Fall actually.

    I like to camp in the desert in the middle of Summer. It's usually empty...except for Death Valley, which is popular with the Euros in Summer.

    Are they naked Euros?
    I like to camp in the mountains during the summer, though empty they are not.
    I'm naked up that way, myself. :bag:

    There's some people in Alaska REALLY hating the unusually high snowfall during the past weeks/months.

    They're not usually naked but for some reason, Speedos are really popular. :atoz:
  11. I dont mind seasons but i hate heat!

    If its more than 70 i start sweating... I just wasnt designed for heat! The fact that i dont believe in shorts doesnt help!

    I actually prefer winter than a hot summer!

    Ever see the movie Into The Wild? Your post reminded me of the german couple (topless chick!) camping along the Colorado River.

    I'm not a fan of Winter. When I lived in CA my favorite season was Summer but, since moving to VA, my favorite seasons have become Spring and Fall. Summer is too humid and with Mosquitos, it's not as enjoyable being outside as it is in CA during the Summer.

    I've lived in the North East for most of my life. I despise winter. After I'm done with my education, I'd really like to move some place with a more even climate (and by more even, I mean more towards the warm/hot spectrum).

    I enjoyed NC's weather when I lived there for a while. Although, when they do get hit with snow, the road crews aren't equipped for it like they are here.
  17. Word.

    It sure has been a nice winter up until recently, though - hard to complain too much.

    Everything is walk-able where I'm at so that makes a difference.
    A good winter for me was 3 years ago, I didn't/couldn't drive for 2 months so did everything on foot with a rucksack.

    I experienced a white-out hiking a local mountain, new at first but a bit sketchy later. About 2 meters of vision and some not inconsiderable drops to walk off the edge of. I could see how you could walk in circles for how ever long in those conditions, couldn't make out any landmarks or contours at all.

    What we've had for the last couple of years tends to turn to slush within a couple of days, which is messy.
