Your wet clothing was quickly removed and replaced with your companion’s dry clothing, hat, gloves, and socks. You were placed in a sleeping bag with a second bag on top and then on top of a sleeping pad. The stove provided warm drinks and food, and hot water bottles. Building a fire added warmth, gave you a sense of comfort, and helped dry your gear. Hypothermia was prevented! You ate a big meal and drank a lot of hot chocolate. Once your gear is dry you can continue on your way, although this time you’ll take the long way around the lake shore.
