Yeah, lets face it, it's nice to play games when the temperature is good. Right now it's 110 in AZ, would you really train or just B.S. Likewise How many up north really bivoac in sub zero temps? After all, if SHTF do you really think it will happen when conditions are to your liking?

110 isnt that hot

All kidding aside, WHAT IF you had to live in your enviorment without heat/AC for a month. After all, you are on the run or engaging in shoot and scoot tactics.

I LIVE for PAIN. I built a house out of my own FECES. I store rainwater in a sack made from the SINEW of my neighbors. I make WARHAMMERS out of the skulls LIONS. I built a rocket propelled GRENADE from a toaster.

Not me! I have solar power, well water, and a propane generator in an isolated mountain cabin with thirty days of provisions. If I lose the house, I am so screwed. I hate the cold.

How many of you practictice REAL SHTF? ME! I do!

I PT regardless of the weather (okay, I won't run if it is raining hard). I have been running in the 100+ weather at lunch lately. While seemingly insane, bad things don't happen when it nice outside. Some of the worst, most dangerous situations I have been in were accompanied by crap weather conditions. Be prepared for the worst, and more than once, in real-life worst-case scenarios, Ihave thought "this is easier than training."

I work in the extreme heat, as well as extreme cold year round. So pretty used to both. I know how to hunt. Know how to fish. Can build a fire out of wet wood. And can throw up a makeshift shelter if need be. No I don't practice "REAL SHTF". But I have practiced many of the "skills" enough to feel pretty confident in my abilities.

If it's between 65 and 75 deg's I'm all over it. Oh, and I get to drive my car right? [:\]

I crawl into my closet and pull a sleeping bag over my head everytime it thunders. Just to keep the cat company of course.

I went for a month with a broken DVD player before I got a new one. DON'T TELL ME ABOUT SHTF BUDDY! I LIVED IT!! [size=1](we need a Homer Simpson couch potato animation)[/size=1]

I try to practise good operational security in my day to day life. Info leakage is always a bad thing. Every family vacation is a bug out dry run.

Cold is not problem. I used to winter camp a lot in sub-zero weather. Just dress for it and bring matches and a warm sleeping bag. GunLvr

Cold is not a problem for me, I'm from Siberia, and still feel quite at home in rediculously cold weather. Heat's(above freezing) what I prefer though, Anything under 115 or so, and I'm OK (75'ish and im happy as a clam) (just wear something long or SPF 95 because i get sun-burns from being out and dry for a half hour at most). Then again, SHTF, ill be in a pick-up with a load of supplies in the back, and plenty of fuel. So weather isnt a problem.

I eat bullets and drink CLP, I can live in a sewer drain if I have to covered in feces up to my eyebrows and breath thru my gun's barrel. So there, I am ready for anthing. NOT [rolleyes]

Shooting wise I try to get out in all weather.Snow,rain and shine,which in Ohio you can do all in one day.I have shooting buddies load dummy rounds in my mags to work on jam clearing.But I do need to work on field craft and urban.

Now that I'm on summer vacation I hike regularly during the heat of the day. I've found that the heat makes me most uncomfortable when I'm around my house and have the luxury of air conditioning. Once I'm out in the boonies it's really not that big of an issue, just keep water with you.
