If You Go For A Walk in - 20 °C Weather...

I have heard that it is going down to -20 °C here tonight in Toronto. For those of you who prefer Fahrenheit, please use the following equation to calculate the temperature: [°F] = [°C] × 95 + 32*.

Snow will crunch underfoot like Styrofoam, and breath will rise up in the air, hang for a moment and then descend in a frozen mist.

If you are going for a walk in the woods in this cold weather, make sure to wear good boots, a warm jacket, big mittens, a scarf, a hat, wool pants and a sweater, and bring a foam mat to sit on, your fire-lighting kit, an axe, a carbon steel fixed blade knife, a good kettle, some rope, your tarp, a liter of hot water in a Nalgene bottle, a big wool blanket, some good food - preferably a freeze-dried entree, pepperoni sticks, some flat bread and jam, and of course - your camera.

I hope I am going to go for a walk in the cold as above - but if not today, then tomorrow. Or I guess next year. Oh. Which reminds me.

Happy New Year everybody!!!

May this year bring you peace, contentment, understanding, good health and some nice camping equipment. Lots and lots.



* - 20 °C = - 4 °F
