When I was working outside in the winter I found that thermal underwear made of Polypropylene to be the best. Just don't put it in the dryer.waveysmiley

Why would anyone consider going out in that climate! Could you imagine trying to get a flat tyre fixed?
You: "There's a nail in my tyre"
Tyre repairman: "Really? And you want me to remove it?"
You: "Yes"
Tyre repairman: goes away and returns rather quickly with "Cna you count?"
You: "Yes"
Tyre repairman:"How many nails did you say were in your tyre?"
You: "Just one"
Tyre repairman: "Yeah, right!", rubbing his hands with glee!

How long would it take to repair all those "punctures"? Would the tyre hold air? Could you even balance it again? How fast would you dare to drive on that tyre after it was repaired? How much would the repairs cost? shocked_yellow nananana

I'm not designed for the freezing cold. I'm much more of a hot chocolate in front of the log fire kind of a girl.

Someone obviously fed this AMC Gremlin after midnight before they entered it in the Merrill Ice Drags! Don't laugh, it beat a pair of Chevy Impalas to take it's class!

After shooting these Ice Drags over four years, I've learned how to shoot them on days when the air temp is +1 and wind chil is -35.

Layers, lots and lots of LAYERS!

Including layered gloves!

I had a thin pair of brown jersey gloves on (with chemical hand warmer packet inside) that I wore UNDER my good thinsulate ski gloves.

For my feet, pair regular socks worn under TWO pairs of thermal socks then my thinsulate hiking boots.

On my legs, pair of thermal long johns, thick jeans then bib snow mobile pants.

On my chest, t-shirt, thermal long john top, hooded fleece sweatshirt, heavy ski jacket.

On my head/face I had my fleece drawstring hood then my sweatshirt hood.

Toes got a little cold after 2 1/2 hours but I've learned that the chemical footwarmer things don't work that well.

And the secret to the cars going over 100 mph in an 1/8th of a mile?
