The Truth Behind Winter Clothing, Winter Safety Made Real, Part 5

The previous four parts of WSMR have presented the physical science and physiological principles behind staying warm in winter.  If you can keep all parts of your body warm, then winter and cold weather are not an issue.  Once you know how things actually work you can find or build whatever you may need.

With all of this back ground, in today’s class and subsequent classes we will be applying this new understanding to take care of the body with proper clothing, nutrition, attitudes and practices. When properly executed there can be no suffering in the cold and cold injuries impossible.

We’ll explore where layering fits in the scheme of winter clothing, what their limits and problems are along with how to tune them up for best performance.  The last third of the program will be on clothing evaluation to give you an idea of how to look at winter clothing with performance in mind and not just rely on slick ads, hangtags and well meaning salesmen expounding habits and traditions used in the winter.

Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness.  He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

Economic Collapse in Cuba a Foreshadowing for USA?

Marjory summarizes numerous interviews of Cuban citizens who experienced a total economic collapse and faced starvation after the fall of the Soviet Union.  The social order reversed, where farmers and gardeners became more important than lawyers and doctors as all citizens scrambled to grow food to replace imports that stopped.  Listen for keys to how Cuban’s survived as guidance for how American’s should look to prepare for when the Yankee dollar goes through its collapse.  Great opportunity to learn from Cuban suffering to anticipate and minimize our own challenges from future U.S. economic collapse.

 

Winter Safety & Self Reliant Living Made Real, Part 2

Join Jim as he discusses cold weather survival and preparedness part 3. In this episode, he talks about heat loss via radiation, thermal conductivity, clothing insulators, and much, much more.

Presented in Part-1 of Winter Safety Made Real was the footing for this whole WSMR series: the purpose and approach to winter safety, along with “Why Winter Experiences Fail”, “The Taboos of Cold Weather”, “The Wives’ Tales of Winter”, and An Introduction to PALS™.

Part-2 presents the key points and performance possibilities using PALS™ (the Phillips Arctic Living System™) and why Jim does what he does and the benefit it can bring others.  One of the most important parts in this presentation will be the in depth explanation of the body’s physiological response to the cold and the key steps to keeping hands and feet warm.  Possessing this understanding alone can dramatically change a person’s comfort and safety in the cold.
