Mild Cold and Wet Overnighter S. California on 02/04/2008 11:03:29 MST Print View

This weekend I did a fun overnighter in rain and snow to test some wet/cold strategies. It was fun and I learned alot. Here is a link to the photos. The first photo has a full trip report and each successive one has a caption (hit the pause || button right away and you can cycle through images at your own pace or you can change the slide show timer to a longer interval):

Jhaura -

I like how you used running to dry yourself off and that in your notes for the future that you have opted to worry not about getting wet from rain, but rather allow yourself to get wet from rain to avoid getting wet from perspiration. If one assumes they will be wet it is better to work on methods to stay warm and safe when necessary. Thanks for the report.

Thanks for sharing. Looks like a good time...and I don't even like rain.

Army Poncho on 02/05/2008 06:57:02 MST Print View

When I was active duty we were allowed to use our ponchos to make a shelter that was 2 feet high, no taller. The army poncho was always to short for me. I had to make the decision of wet head or wet feet. I would fall asleep curled up in a ball but would always stretch out in my sleep.
