The season most likely to cause loss of temperature, leading to lack of energy or physical discomfort. This time, I will introduce the key points of setting up a comfortable sleeping environment and the principles of keeping warm when choosing sleeping bags. As long as you know how to use equipment, you can fully recover your energy when camping in the wild.
Ways to avoid temperature loss while traveling and in the tent
Good camping equipment is the strongest backing to keep warm
During the mountain climbing, that is, before reaching the camp, the body will continue to generate heat due to its own basic metabolism. As long as it is not under extreme climatic conditions, keeping warm is not so important. At this time, attention should be paid to adjusting the walking method, pace, and wearing the correct clothing, so as not to cause the body to sweat, wet the clothes and cause the body to cool down. However, the metabolism of the human body will decline in sleep, so when climbing and camping, we must pay attention to avoiding body temperature loss during sleep.
As mentioned earlier, you should be careful to lose your temperature even in summer. Why is this? Because in winter, most people will anticipate the degree of cold before considering equipment. Even veteran climbers will be fully prepared when camping in winter and bring all cold-proof equipment. But in fact, the climate in winter has low rainfall. Even if it snows in the mountains, it will not make the body wet like rain.
Summer is usually the season for novices to challenge, but it is easy to take care of equipment and judgment, and fail to think about the rainy day to file, resulting in the inability to cope with the rain and wet conditions. In addition, the sudden downpour and the soaking coldness of the whole body can be said to be higher than that of mountain climbing in winter.
For novices, there is no doubt that climbing in summer is less difficult than in winter, but the premise is to have complete equipment and sufficient knowledge and skills, and must not be taken lightly. Even in the warm climate of Taiwan, there are opportunities to camp at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters or even more than 3,000 meters. Although the summer sun is shining brightly in the summer, it is very cold at night. The following is to teach you the correct way to keep warm, please be sure to maintain your body temperature in the high mountain low temperature environment.
Various causes of temperature loss in mountaineering camping
1. Body heat is absorbed by the ground
It’s the first time to go camping in the wild for the night, share the tips for keeping warm and teach you how to choose sleeping bags
Although the tent can be sheltered from the wind and rain, according to the principle of heat conduction, the heat energy will be transferred from the high temperature to the low temperature. Therefore, the heat energy of the body will be absorbed by the ground during sleep, resulting in heat loss and loss of temperature. You may not feel it when you first go to bed, but during the period from late night to dawn, your body will easily wake up when you get cold, and you will not be able to rest well.
2. Sweat lowers body temperature
Compared with air, water has 20 times the thermal conductivity, and sweat and water are both moisture. Therefore, when the heat transfers from high temperature to low temperature, the clothes wet with sweat will also cause loss of temperature. In addition, in the process of drying soaked clothes, the heat of the body will also be absorbed by the heat of vaporization (the phenomenon where water turns into steam).
3. Loss of heat energy due to convection
Under no wind conditions, the body's heat will make the surface feel warm, but if there is wind, the heat will be blown away and you will feel cold. The stronger the wind speed, the easier it is to blow away the body heat. Generally speaking, this phenomenon occurs most easily on the mountain ridgeline due to the influence of the atmosphere.
The goal of staying overnight in a tent is to fully recover
Pursuing the comfort of camping is to reserve the physical strength for the next day
