If you get warm and sweaty, take off a layer to let the sweat dry. If you start feeling cold again, add layers of clothing. Drink and eat a lot, so your body has plenty of “fuel” to generate heat. In a group, watch out for hypothermia’s symptoms in others. They may not realize they are becoming hypothermic.
