    Regarding cold weather, it's very individual.
    Under Armor makes a good base layer.
    Winter weight tights and a fleece hoodie that zips up and down make a good top layer.
    A wool cap and glommits (cross between gloves and mittens) work for head and hands.
    If frost crystals start forming on the front of your tights and on the back of your glommits, it's probably too cold to be outside. It can take a long time to recover from frostbite.
    Some have talked about putting screws through the soles of your shoes so the tips provide extra grip, but that's too hard core for me. I just slow down if the footing is bad.

    Thanks so much for those tips @Tramboman ! I appreciate it!
