Winter Camping in Bitter Cold Temperatures

Rating: ***
This article is informative and I learned a few useful tricks about happily surviving winter camping.
This article covers how to cover your skin to avoid frostbite and how to use the three layers to your advantage to stay warm. It also outlined how to stay active, but not too active, to stay warm. Being too active will make you perspire, chilling you to the bone. It also mentions log cabins, but that’s not real camping. I learned that in terms of boots: make sure to check the temperature rating for the boot to make sure they work well when you aren’t working. Also, poly-blend and wool socks are good for footwear.
I learned a couple handy things in this article. I would recommend this article to anyone who wants to learn how to camp outdoors in the winter.
