AHHHHHHHHHHHH! Where is winter? This thread is: Tips on staying warm. Have not needed any tips so far way down in north MS. We have only had a very few days where it has got to the mid 20s, and really not even that many nights making it into the 30s. At least not on nights when I could actually get out and test.
So far this year, I have not even used a TQ, and nothing more below than a HHSS single pad. I got some new vapor barrier clothing for Christmas I have wanted to test. So far, that along with fleece or UL Polarguard clothing and balaclavas, inside a HHSS with overcover, has been more than toasty enough for any temps I have been able to test in.
Though apparently the way far north- Alaska- where normal winters are extreme by our standards- are getting record braking snow and pretty cold temps also. I see a forecast high for Wed in Fairbanks of minus 28/Low minus 38. But here? We hit plus 39 tonight( I think the low was in the 52 last night), with a LOW of 52 on Wed. Good grief, I had a 38F tease low on my early Oct trip to the Sipsey.
Oh Winter, where art thou?
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
