OK got that off my chest, last year I pontificated about silk pink/salmon Russian Army underwear otherwise known as long johns, why they chose pink I do not know. We will be experiencing sub perfect weather and if wagoner is not happy the quality of engagement suffers. I have since acquired thick wool pants and base layer type undies toped of with micro fleece polar tech type overpaints and will spare no effort on my own selfish comfort. With age comes selfish comfort. What has worked for you? Aside you rugged wearing shorts type young bucks, i don't wanna hear" hey it's not cold" or the old "whats your problem" Thank you love Adrian I wanna hear the female perspective as well so ladies chime in please
Your Dog seems to have plotted it's solution rather well.  Looks nicely insulated.
[attachment=5674]OK , you and the dog look plenty warm...........why are you leaning on the saguaro ????? and does that help you to stay warm somehow ?
Maybe someone could explain my pictures to me as well.........cuz I wasn't gonna ask HIM![attachment=5675]
Wool. Wool wool and more wool. Cashmere, angora, merino, snuggly sheep. Wool.
Female companionship?
Here in Northern Nevada I've been hanging out in insulated coveralls, its been below 0 degrees outside here at night in the teens in the day. Working outside wearing 5 layers with the insulated carharts topping it off.
I think my blood freezes at about 50 degrees anymore. Being 25 pounds underweight doesn't help either, so I don't do cold well and have no use for snow either.
Usually I'm in places that suit my clothes, but this year Mother Nature has thrown us a curve. I'll get out when its sunny and the jacket I have is enough. Otherwise, I'll be found inside enjoying some reading and playing online. I'm very rarely bored and quite content within my home on wheels.

Layers are best out here. It can be cold of a morning and by mid morning you start shucking a layer and by lunch its a T shirt day. About 4-5 pm a chill breeze warns of the need to start layering for evening.
Most of y'all, especially northerners, shouldn't be bothered by it much...just remember a layer for the bed too, as the wee hours are the coldest.

Just a reminder....be sure to hydrate well. Even in winter its important with it being so dry here. Most people need some sort of stuff for dry skin too.
A skinny comedian friend once quipped that I come with my own insulation (he was shiver-y at an outdoor event and I was fine). Big Grin

While that is true, I have to say that I cannot help but frown when looking at the Q long-range forecast. I get even more put off thinking of the nights on my 3-4 day drive down there. It won't stop me though. My departure is delayed by a day or two and that may mean I have one less night of below freezing temps on the drive.

When I was buying propane canisters for my Mr. Heater Buddy, I noticed that the Hot Hands company now has "body warmers" that are larger but thinner air-activated patches. I bought a package of them to try.

Cold days are not a worry for me, but I HATE having to get out of the warm cocoon of my bed when the temps are below 40 and especially below 32! So I'm thinking the larger patches may be great for foot-warming in the bed.
Margie and Bindi help my feets stay warm Smile
 I hope those heat packs do the trick.
