Aaron shows you how to dry damp clothes while camping in cold conditions. He shows you the best way to dry clothes when you’re on the move.

Aaron has traveled all over the world on 6 continents (missing Australia!) and uses only a small pack. He typically only travels with 2 pairs of underwear. How is this possible? Isn’t that gross? Nope…he has freshly washed undergarments every day.

Aaron takes you to a sub-zero experience in Wyoming in October. He hikes on the Coal Creek Trail on the western side of Teton Pass between Jackson, WY and Victor, ID. The temperature drops well below zero for your viewing enjoyment. He shows you what it’s like to set up a camp, sleep under a tarp in sub-zero temperatures, how to handle boots and socks, and the wake-up process. He shows you how to keep your feet warm despite temperatures below your sleeping bag rating.
Aaron demonstrates using the Western Mountaineering Antelope sleeping bag being used 20 degrees below its rating of 5ºF. He camps at -18ºF in this movie.
