Sometime it is the simple things we overlook. Today I had to work up in the mountains. Where I got into my work truck it was a cool 25F this morning. When I got up to the hills the thermometer read 13F. When I got to my first job the wind was whipping to up around 20 MPH. I don't know the math but it was brutal, or at least if felt that way since this was the coldest temps of the season for my area.
I had some good cold weather gear and I wrapped my fleece around my head to keep warm. I needed something to keep my face warm, and I used the fleece over my face. The problem was, the fleece came untucked and the blast of cold air chilled my face...
If only I had something as simple as a SAFETY PIN! I do have these in my BOB's but not in my work bag!
So if you got a good idea for some gear that you may need, be sure to include it in all your bags!
My short sightedness in this matter will be corrected ASAP. This was not a life threatening situation, but rather a bit of discomfort.
