My arch nemesis, Gary the Puppet, joined me for another video project. I showed off some of my favourite choices for winter camping gear. Gary did the usual: showed little interest and made rude comments. He even hinted at eating a “medicinal” gummy bear before I arrived. Oh, that Gary.

Check out my top picks for jumping into the winter camping season—and get a giggle watching poor Gary ride the magic bus through the video.

Never a dull moment with a puppet.
