Out on the trail with 2 dogs when it’s 17F makes me… a Granite Stater!
The cold hardly bothers me anymore and I love the crunch of snow under my boots. Whenever I hear that sound I think how bizarre it is to be walking on frozen water that fell from the sky! Grrtz, grrtz.
I’m not sure what’s been most instrumental in my acclimatization:
* Proper winter outergear
* Woolen underthings
* Living here 15+ years
* THE ROUTINE COLD SHOWERS I NOW TAKE <— longevity tool
In any event, I’m glad I learned to love winter like some people love the bomb… or bong… or sumthang?!? lol
