At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

Does being outside in the dead of winter sound miserable? If so, you might want to consider working on your temperature tolerance. If you can handle a little cold, the winter offers quiet campgrounds in magical, snowy settings. And Wim Hof, “The Iceman,” can help you stay warm.

The 58-year-old man from The Netherlands has made a name for himself with his ability to withstand extreme cold. He attributes this to breathing exercises which enable him to “turn his own thermostat up.” He’s submerged his entire body in an ice bath for over two hours, and he summited Everest in only a pair of shorts.

Our friends at Coldpruf are experts in  thriving in cold weather, so they wanted us to see this VICE documentary, in which two journalists met with Wim Hof to learn about his methods and test them out for themselves. Could the Wim Hoff breathing technique work for you, too?

The anthology was definitely a scam to get her parents to buy a bunch of anthologies, but she's still pretty proud of her panda poem. When she's not at her computer, she's (hopefully) outside, hiking or camping with her dog.
