Blair Braverman Gets Undressed

It gets mighty cold in Alaska when you're training for the Iditarod. Musher Blair Braverman (previously at Neatorama) shows us how she dresses for days when the temperature hits 30 degrees below zero, backwards, by taking it off. It takes a while, even though the video is slightly sped up. The Twitter thread is a Q&A about the clothing, with an obvious discussion about answering the call of nature. -via Everlasting Blort

I've ran out to street parking and rummaged through my car trunk with just shorts in -30/-35 weather, but there was sun and no wind. Wind can make a huge difference, as can standing around vs. walking. I can stand around at a slightly sheltered bus stop for half an hour in that weather, or walk for 30-60 minutes easily, but I simply don't have adequate clothing for hours in such weather.

I've known several people that worked a stint on projects at the South Pole. Even though the temperatures were "only" -20 something in the summer, they were explicitly told not to bring a coat on their first trip as they would be issued an appropriate one. The project really did not want to risk someone underestimating how difficult it would be standing outside in windy conditions doing non-physically intense activity.
