How to Dress for the Outdoors

1 post in this topic

Dressing in layers is the key to keeping warm in the winter and to keep from overheating in the summer. To adjust to temperature changes and varying activity levels, you simply add or remove clothing according.

In order to reduce chilling, long underwear, and other under garments are now being made of polyester type materials to remove moisture away from the skin.

Fleece is a good second layer for trapping your body's warmth.

Outer layers vary depending on conditions. But these wind resistance, water resistance outer layers should provide convenience and ease of movement.

Always be prepared with rain gear.

For maximum comfort and blister prevention, you should wear two layers of socks, a thin polyester sock liner with a thicker outer sock. Make sure to change your socks if they get wet and also at night before going to bed.

Quality footwear is important for any activity. They provide stability, warmth and comfort. Make sure that you waterproof your boots. If your feet hurt, you will not enjoy yourself. Period.

Hats are good for both warmth and sun protection. In cool weather, sleeping with a hat can provide the warmth you need. Up to 80% of your body heat can be lost through your head and neck.

Gloves protect your hands. Exposing your hands to extreme cold can quickly cause frostbite. Protecting your hands is also important while doing outdoor work.

Quality sunglasses are also necessary.

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.  
    • Snowflake alert http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/andrew-andy-puzder-labor-trump/index.html    
    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
