    Butler Wash

    Went for a ride today in Butler Wash, southeast Utah. Took a few pics, thought you might enjoy.
    It was cold and clear, on sand, a little snow, and frozen mud. Don't know what the temp was
    But by the time I got back I was shaking so bad I was breaking a sweat! Went about 53 miles
    round trip and only saw 2 other rigs, both lion hunters with dogs. Tdub ran good and didn't
    buck me off this time. There are a lot of ruins in the area, but didn't climb up to any today,
    it was to cold and not enough daylight, but will try and post a pic that I took last year.

    You already got an action packer on. Did you mount it up similar to this or something else. I ask because I've got to mount mine to my cyclerack tomorrow. Thanks for any feedback. Nice RR.

    If you were shaking so badly that you broke into a sweat you were well into hypothermia - You might want to do a bit of reading on what the symptoms are because this can kill you!

    Signs and symptoms

    The signs and symptoms vary depending on the degree of hypothermia and may be divided by the three stages of severity.
    Mild

    Symptoms of mild hypothermia may be vague[13] with sympathetic nervous system excitation (shivering, hypertension, tachycardia, tachypnea, and vasoconstriction). These are all physiological responses to preserve heat.[14] Cold diuresis, mental confusion, as well as hepatic dysfunction may also be present.[15]Hyperglycemia may be present, as glucose consumption by cells and insulin secretion both decrease, and tissue sensitivity to insulin may be blunted.[16]Sympathetic activation also releases glucose from the liver. In many cases, however, especially in alcoholic patients, hypoglycemia appears to be a more common presentation.[16] Hypoglycemia is also found in many hypothermic patients because hypothermia often is a result of hypoglycemia.[17]
    Moderate

    Low body temperature results in shivering becoming more violent. Muscle mis-coordination becomes apparent.[18][19][20] Movements are slow and labored, accompanied by a stumbling pace and mild confusion, although the person 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.
    Severe

    As the temperature decreases, further physiological systems falter and heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure all decrease. This results in an expected HR in the 30s with a temperature of 28 °C (82 °F).[15]
    Difficulty in 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 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the person 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.[citation needed]
    Paradoxical undressing

    Twenty to fifty percent of hypothermia deaths are associated with paradoxical undressing. This typically occurs during moderate to severe hypothermia, as the person becomes disoriented, confused, and combative. They may begin discarding their clothing, which, in turn, increases the rate of heat loss.[21][22]
    Rescuers who are trained in mountain survival techniques are taught to expect this; however, some may assume incorrectly that urban victims of hypothermia have been subjected to a sexual assault.[23]

    Very cool, in more ways than one! I enjoyed the pics, thanks for sharing them with us. Glad you made it home OK.

    Thanks for the reminder, Polarpilot.

    Absolutely gorgeous. I guess it adds to the adventure if you nearly kill yourself eh!

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
