      Good thing I never got lost in the snow! The only time I used my
      Space Blanket was to wrap it around my sleeping bag - seemed to work
      fine - but then again I had a good sleeping bag. Carried it around in
      my day pack for years. Guess I'll stick to my wool blanket when I
      heat up the still!
