    Lightbulb poly-pro and wool

    My tip is long underwear!!!!
    Without that little, thin, dry layer right next to my skin, the breeze would get to me! Ask Hiram, I'm cranky without long underwear!

    Lightbulb ok back on topic

    Always have an extra set of gloves/mittens. They often get wet, especially setting up camp in the snow, so you'll want another set while the first set dry.

    Default Socks

    Lots of extra socks so when your feet sweat you can change them. And food, so when you eat it you will have more to eat.
    Happy Trails!

    I'm definately a fan of dry socks!!

    Today's Tip: put your clothes for the next day in your sleeping bag to wake up to them being warm Although Hiram prefers not to change at all!

    Put your tent on top of the snow. It's easier on the ground if you camp on the snow rather than on the ground.
