    Michael, Great article for a serious problem in the backcountry. I’ve experienced hypothermia twice while hiking and witnessed several people with it on the summit of Whitney on a really bad weather day several years ago. It is something that few people prepare for and few know what to do once they start to exhibit the symptoms. While hiking, hypothermia and altitude sickness are always in the backs of our minds as there is nothing that slows down or cancels a trip quicker. ATB, Wayne
