Dressing to keep Warm

Carhartts = Coveralls ,bibs, vest and jacket with hood ( All with the black Arctic lining not the red.) Poly or silk long underwear, Chopper mitts with wool liners plus gloves , Snowmobile hat with face mask or hard hat winter liner and wool and poly socks. You won't look fashionable but you will be warm (Minnesota Chic)

Wow Camilla, that chair would be perfect for playing dominoes on cold nights. I could have used it while camping with some friends Thanksgiving weekend.

Now someone needs to market an air conditioned chair for those of us in hot climates. I'd use the heated chair one or two weekends a year. An air conditioned chair would be useful six or seven months per year in Texas.

You get the small one of these and put it in your chair

CoolGelSolutions.com - Coolerest Sleep Pad with Magnicool Technology

There are a lot of other brands of heated camping chairs if you do a google search.

Nice. If it works in a chair I might order one for our bed at home. We could keep the house warmer in the day without the mattress getting too hot to sleep on.

well,, we live in michigan, so we just gave up on being warm till spring.
but i have a small kettle grill, a little matchlight charcoal and it makes a nice warming pot. without all the smoke of a fire.

otherwise,,, remember those nice Jon'e hand warmers? they are still sold and still work great. comes in a small size for your pocket, and a larger size. thats nice and toasty

Ditto on wearing a hat. Seem to remember you lose about 60% of heat out of the top of your head.
Once we were camping in the back of a pickup truck, and despite having on 4 or 5 blankets, were still cold. Remembered reading that, so I took my coat and wrapped that around my head, and was warm as toast!

Rain Pancho

We go up to Manitoba Canada each May for the fishing opener . It's our annual fishing trip and we spend 5 days fishing . The ice is just off the lake and the ground is wet from the snow melt. There is a usually a strong NW wind . Wearing a rain coat or pancho does wonders in keeping you warm by blocking the wind especially when motoring for 10 or 12 miles across frigid waters.

I guess I'm too simple. If I'm cold, I go inside.

Cap, gloves, wool socks, campfire...
Yep, I live in Florida, but I'm from Minnesota, and we love camping in cool weather, and northern states and Canada. The extra clothes don't weigh that much.... A small price to pay for the scenery.
