Well taken. I think what its really going to come down to is if I can finish my kit and give it a full field test in February/March in my area. That's when we get our worst weather and it's currently single digits and snowing. If I can get a few field tests with below zero in I'd feel a lot better. If I cant, then I'll likely go the truck method. My biggest thing was just trying to get into deep country to try to put some space between myself and as many others as possible, but I'd also rather not die haha I didnt think of 2 pairs of boots, but it absolutely makes sense on the glassing sessions. Thank you for the advice
IME. You will only need a few miles in. Then anything off trail a bit will be even better. Very few make it 2-3 miles, and even less make it another couple off the trail.
For the testing of your gear. Give it a dry run in less than extreme conditions. Baby steps...
