Harsh temperatures and serious weather conditions can be the line between life and death when you’re in a survival situation. Depending on where you live, you may be acclimated to a certain climate, but everyone has the point where their body just cannot take it. Specifically looking at freezing degrees, there is only so much that we as humans can handle.
Unfortunately, unlike some of the furry animals around us, we are not equipped for below freezing temperatures, and even piling on coats and blankets isn’t always effective.
For many, a great source of warmth is in the feet. If your feet are cold, the rest of you tends to cool down as well, and vice versa. That’s where your favorite pair of sandals isn’t an advisable choice for cold weather. Even sturdy tennis shoes might not fit the bill – instead, many invest in boots or, even better, snowshoes.
Unfortunately, not all of us have the money to invest in a durable and effective pair. Thankfully, there are quite a few creative minds out there who have put together a how-to on making your own. Read on to find out how you can take part in this fun and useful project.
