Keeping your extremeties warm
(Louisville,KY. &THE ROAD)
When sitting or laying motionless for long time the blood pressure seems to drop. When it is cold out and your core body temperature begins to drop your body will slow blood flow to your extremeties. It does this to protect the major organs and the brain.
When your toes get cold you can tighten up your calf muscles and flex your feet and toes. These movements cause the blood that has pooled in your lower legs to be pumped to your core. It return warm blood from your bodies core will replace it and help warm those areas. I also take off my boots in the deer stand and replace them with felt boot liners and HOT HANDS heat packs. The looser fitting boot liners also allow for better circulation to the feet.
You should also replace damp/wet socks with dry ones while sitting or traveling. As for your hands you can tuck them into your groin area or under your armpits. These are very warm ares on the body. You can also hang your arms down at your sides and slightly swing them forwards and backwards.
Mittens are warmer than gloves as they let the fingers share heat. You can also put the HOT HANDS in your mittens or gloves.
Most importantly remember that 70% of your body heat is lost through your head. If your cold put a hat or hats on.
