For Scout Troops braving the cold of winter, this video from the Northern Tier National High Adventure Program’s OPTIK program may be of more than just passing interest. The video presents some great tips for staying warm in extreme temperatures.
An explanation of the time-tested Northern Tier Sleeping System. Northern Tier crews regularly face temperatures lower than -20 degrees Fahrenheit – this is the system they use to handle those extreme temperatures. In addition to keeping the sleeper warm, this sleeping system also prevents gear from freezing during the night and, in some cases, will help gear dry out.
