Here’s one I found http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___45326 for 60.00 Keep something under your bag to keep the cold and any moisture out, concrete is an enemy in cold weather due to thermal mass. Anything that keeps a soft 2-3 inches of space between you and the ground should be good. I prefer foam about an inch thick I don’t have much experience with tents due to the simple fact that the Infantry doesn’t use them much, and if they do they are crap. But I would think anything that keeps the wind off of you and allows some thermal buildup would be fine. I’m sure someone out there knows a thing or two about which tent is best. Don’t smoke in them! Wool socks are the best period, I know they are itchy but you want to keep your toes warm and pink right. Wool even when wet can keep you warm and wool socks have saved my feet from nature’s worst. Change your socks a couple times a day; if they get wet change them immediately DO NOT WAIT! Trust me you don’t want trench foot! Remember your gonna burn a lot of calories in the cold if you’re walking all day. Eat and drink warm meals and keep hydrated. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hypothermia/DS00333 Hypothermia- Learn about this killer and watch out for the warning signs in the park. Hypothermia is a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature. Normal body temperature is around 98.6 F (37 C). Hypothermia (hi-po-THUR-me-uh) occurs as your body temperature passes below 95 F (35 C). When your body temperature drops, your heart, nervous system and other organs can't work correctly. Left untreated, hypothermia can eventually lead to complete failure of your heart and respiratory system and to death. Hypothermia is most often caused by exposure to cold weather or immersion in a cold body of water. Primary treatments for hypothermia are methods to warm the body back to a normal temperature. • Shivering • Clumsiness or lack of coordination • Slurred speech or mumbling • Stumbling • Confusion or difficulty thinking • Poor decision making, such as trying to remove warm clothes • Drowsiness or very low energy • Apathy or lack of concern about one's condition • Progressive loss of consciousness • Weak pulse • Slow, shallow breathing

I’ve missed a lot of stuff this is just a simple guide of common sense and I am sure most of you know this please feel to add anything that would be relevant to your situation. You will learn from experience what works in your environment, the best piece of advice I can give you- Take care of the person to your left and right. If you see someone that’s in trouble help them, or you guys will have a ton of cold weather emergencies. Don’t forget your Sterno- great for soup.
