How to Preserve Body Heat in the Wild
Many a times, it happens that someone is enjoying camping in a freezing cold place, and all of a sudden things go south. If you find yourself stuck in a very cold place and the nearest town is miles away, you should not panic. There are ways you can survive even in the severe harsh cold. Your first priority in such scenario should be to get yourself warm and to preserve your body heat.
One of the best insulators is ice/snow itself. Try to dig up a snow cave. This may take a couple of hours, but it will be totally worth it. The walls of the cave will keep you out of the cold breeze’s way. It will not be warm but will keep you alive for the night. Once you have dug up a cave, just crawl inside. If you want to make things a bit more comfortable, you can burn a small candle inside.
Try to navigate the area and if you come across any dead animals especially bears or dears, you can use their skin as another protective layer against the severe cold. There are many other creative ways using which you can keep yourself warm and alive in the severe cold.
