Camping in the Winter
If you are an adventurer, if you are passionate about hiking and you love camping, these ideas can be very useful.
Here are some helpful tips to help you stay comfortable while you go camping in the cold:
First, add some extra clothing, spare socks and stockings to your luggage. If it is cold, adding layers of clothing can always be a relief. Try to pack coats, scarves, gloves, and everything that helps you to reduce the cold. Remember, it is advisable that the clothing is synthetic and thermal.
Hydration. It is essential to stay well hydrated while camping. Foods with carbohydrates are ideal to keep warm and not dehydrate. Remember: although it seems that you can not sweat a lot, you should constantly drink water as it is easy to lose it through perspiration.
A cup of hot broth, a coffee or a chocolate can be foods that relieve the cold. Therefore, it is advisable to keep hot water in a pot. To do this, you can make a campfire if the camping space is adequate, and protect the wind area with stones.
Try to protect yourself from wind and rain. These meteorological effects can produce much lower thermal sensations.
In case you are very hot, due to physical activity or effort, it is not recommended that you remove all the layers. The cold outside can cause you to catch a cold and get cold. Remove the layers of clothing little by little.
Do not go to sleep wet. With the cold, the humidity can increase and the sensation of low temperatures also, so you can get colder. Above all, try to have completely dry hair.
