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.
