Re: Campaigners tips, tricks, and techniches
When sleeping in REALLY cold weather, an hour or two before you turn in, put a good-sized rock near the fire (about the size of a loaf of bread). Heat it evenly untill you can just barely hold it in your bare hands. Put it at the foot of your bedroll so the soles of your feet rest against it, roll up and snooze away! I've have personally done this sleeping out in 17 F.with a blanket and ground cloth.P.S. wearing a sleeping cap to bed is must for this to work!
