    Watched a program on the Military Channel recently about the military dealing with those temps. Antifreeze looked like Jello! Did lookout watch on a sub when we surfaced through the ice above the Artic Circle. Someone said it was -75F, thankfully we were only up for about 15 min.

    Animal furs and snow shelters. Both are crazy warm (an igloo or similar snow shelter stay right around 0*C when done right, regardless of external temperatures).
