Riging atvs in the winter? Be prepared

November 28, 2009

Snow is in the mountains. It is time to make sure when you are out in the back country to take a few precautions.

Remember the rule of 3s. Then plan accordingly.

For exposure, make sure you are in the correct clothing. Do not use cotton. Cotton wicks water away but it will not dry fast. This will draw heat from your body in a more rapid fashion and cause you to chill faster. Do not use cotton.

Dress in layers and make sure your cloths are clean. Dirty clothes reduce the heat retention in your clothes.

Carry some type of fire starting device. Two is better. Remember a a backup.

Wear a hat. Most heat is lost through the head.

Carry a small space blanket in your pocket for warmth and I also include a big garbage bag or two for a poncho or an emergency shelter. They really work.

Look for more seasonal tips in the future.

CHeck out http://mountainsurvival.com or http://survival.ws. They are both the same site. One is shorter to type.

Be safe and prepared.
