Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I want to know what is the best range of warm kit to take with you when you going canada, cause i will be touring canada in the winter. Its definately going to be quite warm. ^^\' , but i am really looking forward to it, as it is my first ever tour. so if i have the right kit i think i shall be fine with what ever happens... :D
  2. Lots of beer tokens :)
  3. Toque
    Spare felts for mukluks
    Caribou skin parka
    Gloves inside mitts
    12 dogs
    Snow tools

    or if you are driving around instead of walking the Trans Canada Trail

    Goretex (or similar) runners/light hikers
    Good socks
    Medium weight jacket
    CAA membership

    We don't live in igloos and and in most places you are no more than 50 km from a gas station (some exceptions). Winter can range from +20 to -40 but when it's -40 most things stop happening.

    Cold really only sucks when your standing still, in Wainwright we knew what station the RSM listened to for weather, and if it that station said it was below -20 we didn't go to PT, otherwise it was running.
  4. Canuk are you in Wainright now
  5. Nope, 92 to 97
  6. No sweat, my mate Skuzzy is there, he's just about the oldest F**ker in the Canadian Army
