I seem to have this problem during cold weather camping.
Here are a couple of solutions that I have heard suggested.
ALWAYS, change your socks before going to bed. IF you think of it, you might
try sticking a dry pair of socks in an inner pocket of a jacket, to warm them
up with your body temperature.
I have heard this works, but I have never tried it. Fill a canteen with hot
water, wrap it in a towl, and put it int the bottom of the bag. It should
act as a hot water bottle. (Just make sure it doesn't leak <g>)
Best of luck in the cold weather camping.
BTW, if you get any other ideas, please forward them to me, I would be very
interested in the results of your query.
