    been quite temperate here in South Carolina so I dug out the M-1943 field jacket

    Love the look of an M-43 the later jackets just don't have that classic look

    Bloody freezing here, blowing a gale and no pictures as it was too cold to press the button on the camera. I completely piked out and went for the modern super high tech parka.

    But hey we have the sun back here so proper sunlight, albeit a touch low on the horizon and then it buggers off after half an hour or so.

    It was a bit like that Matt! We spent the weekend up in the mountains at one of the family cottages/cabins. -17 ambient (wind was 18m/s so effective temp was -33ish) but absolutely beautiful and I was snug as a bug in a rug in thermals, fleece lined boots and a Canada Goose. The Norwegians have a saying, "Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær - There's no bad weather, just bad clothing"

    On the way up...

    If it's cold you can always do something to get warm, put clothes on, make a fire, have a sauna, make love to your significant other, etc.

    But if it's really hot there's not so much you can do, sure crank the air con up, drink beer. I don't know how many times in Melbourne I sat outside in the garden in my undies with a beer when it was over 40C and still wished I could pull my skin off.

    Matt, if you ever make it up here, it would be my pleasure to show you guys around.
