Get Warm Fast




This is a very simple Instructable, designed to show you how to get warm very fast when your out in the elements or how to keep those legs and toes warm while your in your tree stand.

Step 1: Item Needed

Go to your local discount superstore and pick up a bulk pack of disposable heat packs...... they are in the outdoor section with the hunting goods.

Step 2: Get Cold

While out traversing the woods or hunkered down waiting in your tree stand you may find that having a heat pack just doesn't cut it. Sure your hands are warm but toes, lower legs, thighs and possibly your core is getting cold....

Step 3: Think Arteries

Stick the heat pack in your groin next to your femoral artery and that will warm up one leg and toes quick. If your arm is getting cold put it in your armpit at the brachial. You also have the neck artery as an option.

That is it, simple and effective.

    Still, it's scientifically sound, and most people don't know the artery trick...I didn't. I'm moving to Montana, so I'm sure I'll have a chance to use this knowledge.

    Has anyone tried to stick the toe warmer ones (the ones that have stickers on them) directly on skin? Does it become uncomfortable after a while?
