    I have been amazed at how warm 40 degrees can seem when you are acclimated to cold and you're out of the wind. And I was never a huge fan of cold before.

    It's kind of the same here. I was 'sorta' used to temperatures hovering between -10 and 10 degrees. Once it gets around 40, and it rains instead of snows, it's almost T-shirt weather.

    Thanks for putting up a video mjs9153. I've seen it a few times, and simply took it for granted that others may not have. I still gotta watch the part two in its entirety. Apparently Proenneke's ambition was derived from when he was bed-ridden due to an illness when he was close to middle-aged. When he became well, he decided to make his body as strong and as healthy as he could. It's definitely an inspiring story, but I know for sure I couldn't survive all that time without the internet.
