It's freezing! Tips for keeping warm by camping outdoors in winter.People often ask me how cold it is to sleep in a tent on a mountain in winter. My answer is:
1. Very cold!
2. Super cold!
3. No! I'm really going down!
Here are some tips to keep warm in alpine camping.
First of all. Don't drink too much water before bed.
In addition to the pain of having to crawl out of the tent to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, the body uses more heat energy to store urine in the bladder and maintain it at slightly higher temperatures than body temperature. So in order not to get up in the middle of the night to pee or hold it in, don't drink too much water before bed, or make sure you've cleared it all before getting into your tent and sleeping bag.
But in experience, it's hard to avoid completely empting your urine, especially in low temperatures high up in the mountains, where a few drops of urine can occasionally cause a feeling of urgency. So you can also bring a bottle of urine, which you can use without leaving the tent, and you can hold the warm pot in your arms to keep warm. But! Make sure you put a special label on the pot so you don't use it to make coffee when you wake up.
Girls can try the female urine funnel, the correct use can focus the direction, there are camouflage version oh! However, according to a female friend who has actually used it, "girls still have structural inconveniences..."
Secondly.Try to eat calories before bed
Calories are the fuel that produces the body's heat, without which the boiler cannot burn efficiently. If you don't want to overeat or have a poor appetite, prepare a small caloric snack or action food and sleep half the night if you feel cold to replenish calories and keep your body running.
Do some warm-up exercises
Think of your sleeping bag as a thermos. Fill it with hot water to keep it warm and cold water to keep it cold. So before you get into your sleeping bag, do a few jumping jacks, squats, or anything simple to warm up without adding to the burden.
As a rule of thumb, filling up an inflatable sleeping pad before bed is a great warm-up exercise... .
Third.Get your sleeping bag
The quickest way to do this is to invest in a warm down sleeping bag. You get what you pay for. Compare your sleeping bag's comfortable temperature to its extreme temperature, and choose the right length to get a good night's sleep.
Small remind! The "limit temperature" on a sleeping bag is usually for reference only, as the body temperature and humidity have to be taken into account. However, the warmer the sleeping bag, the heavier it will be. "Light" and "warm" are not the same.
But if your existing sleeping bag isn't warm enough, there are ways to overcome it.
1. Buy a sleeping bag inner cover to increase warmth and keep down sleeping bags clean.
2. Alternatively, fill a kettle with hot water and toss it into a sleeping bag to warm it up. Just be sure not to use thermos.
3. Don't dive into your sleeping bag as soon as you open it. Let it sit for some time until the air in the down compartment is full and expanded to provide better thermal insulation.
4. The open zipper of the sleeping bag has left and right sides. If you and your partner buy the same style of zipper with different directions, you can combine two single sleeping bags into a double sleeping bag! With the blessing of body temperature, ensure a good night's sleep!
Do's and don 'ts while sleeping
1. Remember to wear a furry hat to keep warm, and instead of covering your nose and mouth with a sleeping bag, use a breathable magic scarf. The warm air exhaled from the nose and mouth can damp the sleeping bag and reduce its warmth.
Keep your feet and socks dry, using a thick layer of spare socks if necessary, or even emptying your backpack and stuffing your feet inside. Another method is to warm the baby's feet, and then a layer of wool socks.
First into the sleeping bag, then into the backpack.
3. Use a sleeping mat to insulate your back from the ground, because most of the cold comes from the ground, so the thicker the tent bottom, the better the warmth. Pack unwanted clothing, waterproof bags, backpack covers, and trash bags.... Put it all on the bottom! (In campsites with plants, you can also cover the ground with lots of leaves and grass.)
The use of a raised camp bed seems to be the most effective barrier from the ground, but even light camp beds weigh three times as much as normal light sleeping MATS.
If you're camping out of the wind, use a canopy to build a barrier around your tent.
