[at-l] Re: thawing clothing trick

Not that it really matters now I suppose... But, I've found that putting 
forzen clothing in a stuff sack (reverse it so the outside becomes the 
inside, and putting it in the sleeping bag with you for a while really 
does the trick. Yes, you will cool off a bit, but this will keep things 
from freezing. I'll even grant that it makes things a bit bumpy in the 
bag, but I'd much rather have supple boots in the mroning than frozen 
ones (think I learned that tidbit from Paul Hann).

Something else that works is to place the clothing between your sleeping 
bag and sleeping pad. If you've got two pads you can put it between them 
and forego the use of a stuff sack altogether.
