Re: Extreme Cold

I am so interested because you are doing this now and coping. You say you have sweaters so I will make an assumption that you did not have high $ high tech gear. Could you show the heaters ? You proved how to improvise adapt and overcome a difficulty.
How does your 1st mate feel. What is the crews the attitude.
I did stay a night out in a pup tent with only a candle in north west PA. during Jan winter 77-78. Not sure of the exact temp but it was negative no wind. It was a thing for a young person to prove. I am older now. I would not think of doing it ever again. I do not think I slept and I hiked out at daybreak. I believe I can tolerate heat better than cold if I have water to drink
I do not think my wife is ready for this much but she can be tougher than me at times.
Regards , Lou
