It's impossible to fight against Finnish winter, so we'll have to ally with it and use it against the enemy!

Lagerbefehl is online and can be found here http://www.gaissmair.net/Winter2011/Lagerbefehl.pdf

One point that's not mentioned there is this: we are not providing ready-made movie sets or ready-made playgrounds for projects not mentioned in Lagerbefehl training program. Everyone will take part of the training as told/ordered by training staff regardless of their previous skills/military training/mothers cousin being ceo of Nokia and so on. Only exemptions from training program are due to medical reasons and that is for the medical staff to decide. Feldgendarmerie will patrol the area and keep order by all means necessary. There will be enough "free time" to pose with weapons and take pictures, but it will not happen on the expense of training program.

I don't want to be a bad person or point someone with finger when I say this but based on the feedback from last years event these facts have to be clear to everyone participating. What's done is done and what has happened has happened, Winter training 2011 will be different and I hope that everyone has a good time! Don't forget long underpants, see the message about weather forecast!

Good sir we have two RVs both are staffed and warm and as nick said stay safe so here is the
dangers of Hypothermia and Frostbite are REAL
Normal body temperature in humans is 36.8°C (98.2°F). Hypothermia can be divided in three stages of severity.

* Stage 1

Body temperature drops by 1-2°C (1.8-3.6°F) below normal temperature (35-37°C or 95-98.6°F). Mild to strong shivering occurs. The victim is unable to perform complex tasks with the hands; the hands become numb. Blood vessels in the outer extremities constrict, lessening heat loss to the outside air. Breathing becomes quick and shallow. Goose bumps form, raising body hair on end in an attempt to create an insulating layer of air around the body (which is of limited use in humans due to lack of sufficient hair, but useful in other species). Often, a person will experience a warm sensation, as if they have recovered, but they are in fact heading into Stage 2. Another test to see if the person is entering stage 2 is if they are unable to touch their thumb with their little finger; this is the first stage of muscles not working.

* Stage 2

Body temperature drops by 2-4°C (3.8-7.6°F). Shivering becomes more violent. Muscle mis-coordination becomes apparent. Movements are slow and labored, accompanied by a stumbling pace and mild confusion, although the victim may appear alert. Surface blood vessels contract further as the body focuses its remaining resources on keeping the vital organs warm. The victim becomes pale. Lips, ears, fingers and toes may become blue.

* Stage 3

Body temperature drops below approximately 32 °C (89.6 °F). Shivering usually stops. Difficulty speaking, sluggish thinking, and amnesia start to appear; inability to use hands and stumbling is also usually present. Cellular metabolic processes shut down. Below 30 °C (86.0 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the victim exhibits incoherent/irrational behavior including terminal burrowing or even a stupor. Pulse and respiration rates decrease significantly, but fast heart rates (ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) can occur. Major organs fail. Clinical death occurs. Because of decreased cellular activity in stage 3 hypothermia, the body will actually take longer to undergo brain death.
