I strongly recommend everyone participating in this event to read the book “98.6 Degrees – The art of keeping YOUR ASS ALIVE!” by Cody Lundin.  $9-$12 at http://www.amazon.com/98-6-Degrees-Keeping-Your-Alive/dp/1586852345

In this book, the author stresses that a human can live without food for weeks, and without water for several days. But if the body’s core temperature dips much below the 98.6 degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don’t take seriously, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when snowmobiling or surviving in extreme conditions could save your life.
