When winter arrives in the Northern hemisphere, we really need the time to think of winter survival techniques. How many drivers on side roads,snowmobile rs, x country skiers,or occupants of small planes have been trained.Not to many i can tell you that. When it gets down to minus 30 degrees(F) (-35C) and small parts of the lower male anatomy start to drop off then you know you have a problem and not at Houston.

However even the most inexperienced of us,if they follow a few tips can get through and survive with all fingers and toes and lower male body parts intact. The three main factors are Shelter,water,and warmth.You may have a car break down or accident,take a wrong turn and end up in the middle of bl**dy nowhere that makes an overnight camp essential,or even a planned camping trip could go tits up before your eyes.

Always try to wear at least three layers of clothing, i now its a sod if you need a p*ss or a sh*T, but it allows you to adjust your dress so you are always just warm enough, but not so warm as to start sweating. Because sweat can be a killer as it starts to freeze and lowers the body core then hypothermia sets in and then you are in deep sh*t. If a trip is planned or not make out a check list and always tick off the items before you set off on your travels. Here are a few examples.
  • Lighter or waterproof matches or flint and steel
  • A good knife and an ice saw
  • Snow shovel and spade
  • Blankets and a first aid kit
  • Cotton wool balls soaked in lighter fluid (quick fire start )
  • Container for holding water and some sort of primus stove plus some food
A snow shelter should be a priority before nightfall arrives. The easiest snow shelter is a snow trench. Dig down about three feet ,shoulder width and a little longer than your body side. Just double that if there are two of you for extra body warmth,piling the snow on the windward side to make a wind break. If the snow isn't deep enough, then dig to the ground and scoop up snow to provide a wall. Dont  forget that snow is a better insulator than a tent. Lay down some spruce leaves for the flooring and some branches over the top of the hole makes it waterproof Bevelling the trench from the narrow opening adds more sleep space and the smaller opening makes less heat loss. Rocks or trees can provide protection from the wind so bear this in mind when chosing a site to build your new small country cottage ha! Do not construct a shelter against metal ie: your car its insulation value is nil cause metal draws in heat.

Fire should be the next priority. Dig out a small area for the fire with a shelf for sitting. Should be deep enough that when sitting your head is out of the wind. Always gather more kindling  and good dry pieces of wood than you think you need,cause if the weather goes bl**dy tits up ,then mateys you are going to need it. The fire will help prevent hypothermia and dry your clothes but it wont stop dehydration. If there is a river or stream nearby then great,if not then you have to melt the snow. Dont eat it straight from the ground or the yellow stuff where you have just had a p*ss. If you dont have a container  then snow wrapped in cloth and placed near the fire will melt and soak the cloth,which you can suck like an ice lolly to get the water.

I hope this has been some help to you out there i am no expert and i am sure you can find more info elswhere. So please take care and be safe out there.
