Vapor Barriers. Those vegetable bags at the grocers work well on your feet in a pinch. They keep your boots dry on the inside too. also check out www.geocities.com/truckaa/camptips.html

Date: 22 Nov 2002
Time: 12:49:12

Tip

Always ensure that you wear a wool stocking cap. Realize that you lose as much as 98% of your body heat through your head.


Date: 01 Nov 2002
Time: 16:27:08

Tip

On really cold nights boil some extra water to put in your water bottles which you then toss into your sleeping bag. It is wise to place the bottle in a ziplock just incase it leaks, but this will keep your toes nice and warm for quite a while.


Date: 31 Oct 2002
Time: 23:12:26

Tip

Keep your feet warm by wearing a hat? Yep...more than 50% body heat is lost thru your top torso, so wear a hat...a hood is even better. A face mask will help, and don't forget the hood portion of your mummy bag...

Time: 19:10:49

Tip

Put a watter bottle, or watter blatter at the foot of your sleeping bag filled with warm water to get your bag all tosty. Make sure it dosen't leak though. Also stuff your sleeping bag (loosly) with extra, dry clothes for insulation, and NEVER breath into your sleeping bag!


Date: 25 Sep 2002
Time: 22:43:10

Time: 21:42:00

Tip

Stay warm


Date: 28 Jan 2002
Time: 17:15:48

Tip

If you're staying the same place on days 2, 3 etc. take your sleeping bag out of your tent and open it up to the sun/wind (unless it's snowing or damp outside). This will dry the internal area of your bag that you've loaded up with moisture during the night before. 3-4 days of moisture in a bag can really reduce efficiency.


Date: 28 Jan 2002
Time: 17:13:44

Tip

Place your boots in a plastic bag and keep adjacent your sleeping bag or in your sleeping bag to keep boots pliable and easy to get on in morning. Rock hard "L" shaped frozen boots can really be a bear to put on, especially with bulky wool socks on.

Dry sox equal warm feet!

Date: 05 Dec 1999
Time: 10:39:34

Tip

when at your site store your Nalgenes upside down in the snow. the snow will help insulate your water so it doesn't freeze and if it does at least they will freeze at the bottom of your bottle on freezing on the lid

Any edible items left outside or unsecured at night will likely be eaten, in whole or in part, by some critter!

Keep your feet dry! Bring extra pairs of dry socks and change your socks anytime your feet become damp. Be sure to wear dry socks to sleep--your feet will feel much warmer!

The smaller your tent, typically the warmer the inside will be. Your body heat can warm the interior 20 degrees or more warmer than the outdoor temperature.
