Re: Extreme Weather Coyotes

Its a fun spot but gets hit really hard with all the rig workers around now. If this pic is very old, I can tell you there is a rig 1/4 mile straight south of the town now...big one and that little two track that winds all the way in there is pretty much a main road these days. I was just there this past January and the two track used to run right up to that steep ledge you fellas were looking over but now its blocked off and runs way back in to the west(unless something has changed since)....oil is doing lots of damage to that area these days....pity.....

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. my new motto: avoid the oil and find the dogs...lol

Re: Extreme Weather Coyotes

I'd suggest a pair of MSR snowshoes, particularly the Lightning Ascent models. They don't slip on crusty snow and are very durable, unlike some "recreational' snowshoes.

Mitten shells are good over gloves in extreme cold. Mittens are a requirement for winter outdoor schools as a safety item. I prefer OR Gore-Tex shells.

The author's advice on having two sets of gloves is good. Or you can have one pair of GTX glove shells and two pair of removable fleece liners.

Closed cell 3 mm neoprene diver's sox (worn over thin poly liner socks) are far better than heavy wool socks B/C they keep all your sweat inside so it does not compromise your boots' insulation. Plus the closed cell neoprene is warmer than the warmest wool socks.

As a former Nordic and alpine ski patroller and winter survival instructor for the US Army I make these suggestions from experience.
