It can be miserable if you're actually below 0F with serious wind chill and you're camping. That is: all of those things are happening at the same time because you're not only camping in winter but in a place known for extreme temperatures. >Your toes and fingers get cold/numb no matter how much you're moving after a while.
While this anon might be right (>>2059394
) this can also be a case where you just need warmer clothes or a better balance of warm clothes on other parts of your body. Eating might also help. I know what you're talking about it has happened to me many times, but I've also noticed it has very little to do with the external air temperature.
I won't do standard hyperbole and pretend there are no downsides to the cold, but there are many cases where I'll take winter temperatures over fucking black flies and deer flies. A good hat and ski mask are quite comfortable and extremely effective against high wind. What can you do against black flies? Bug countermeasures are all annoying to wear especially in warm weather and even then you still hear the little fuckers swarming around you.>>2059405
What the fuck difference does that make to the relevant point? Is a lean-to any warmer than a tent?
