Talk:Travelling in cold weather
Standard safety advice for people whose cars break down in Canadian prairie winters is stay in the car, but it is fairly common for people to try to make it to town or wherever on foot and freeze to death en route.
There's also a whole lot of packing advice we might include here, different for auto, foot, snowmobile, ... travel. What emergency supplies do you need? A sleeping bag and high-energy food. What else?
The article does not mention keeping dry, which can be really important. Pashley 11:10, 31 July 2012 (EDT)
