Can the cold make you stronger?
. . . whether skiing in -20˚, or spending two hypothermic weeks out of a month long kayak expedition, Maddog does not like being cold. So, if you think this will help, have at it. But don't expect Maddog to attend. If each year we were living shorter lifespans, perhaps this would resonate, but we are living longer, and healthier lives. Being cold for weeks on end, probably makes one morally stronger, but its long term effects are unlikely to be noticeable.
