All I gotta say is I'm so glad I spent those five winters in Germany - that taught me how to deal with the cold. First thing they did to me when I got over there was take me to the top of the Alps and left me at 10,000 for six weeks. What I learned was as long as you stay warm & dry you're OK - the minute you start feeling the cold that's it; you're done.
Despite all that the coldest place I ever went was last winter in Chicago and the industrial sprawl in the surrounding hinterland. Colder than above 10,000 feet up in the Alps, in the wintertime . . .
. . . and I STILL ain't feeling the cold ! ! !
