Staying Safe this Winter, Part 2. Signs of Hypothermia

We started a blog segment about a week ago on what you need to know to stay safe this winter.  So many variables come in to play when we are out in the wilderness.  The one way we can make sure we are prepared is to arm ourselves with knowledge.  Last week we touched on what to do if you get lost in the woods.  If you didn’t get a chance to read it you can click here for all the useful information.

This week we are going into the signs of hypothermia.  While everyone else is snuggled up in the house near the fire when it is bitter cold out, we are the goofs sitting right in the middle of it.  We will sit there and shiver and bear with the cold just so we can have a chance at getting that big trophy.  But what happens if we sit there just a bit too long?  You want to make sure that you are able to recognize those key signs that will let you know…it has gone beyond goose bumps.
