My Mont Dragonfly tent has withstood the ever-changing Tassie conditions on many an multi day hike. However I’d really like to improve on my backcountry skills, especially navigation and winter survival skills. SMBC would provide me the chance to experience a more isolated yet testing environment whilst further pushing my Mont gear to the limits!
