when we come back. radford. trump is speaking right now at radford university. let's take a listen. we're live streaming the event right now on our website, wdbj7. wdbj7's tim saunders also has an interview with trump that you can catch tonight on wdbj7 at five and 6. when it comes to exploring your hometown, sometimes you have to challenge yourself. during the winter time it can be hard to
advantages. in this week's your hometown, wdbj7's garrett turner tells us why winter camping is a good thing and how to make it a successful trip. i'm going to interject an idea here--winter camping. it may seem crazy but there's a lot of people that take advantage of it. my favorite part about camping in the winter is the....the lack of competition for good campsites is the biggest. not many people go winter camping around here. the other would be the lack of bugs, spiders, arachnids, snakes and all those creepy crawling things i'm sold. pat metheny from backcountry ski and sport says there's three keys to a good winter overnight backpacking trip. first, you have to have the right gear. keeping your feet warm and dry is huge. it's probably the most imporant. i think marino wool socks does the best job of keeping your foot warm and it tends to get a little bit wet it wicks moisture off your feet remember cotton is your enemy. bring
hat--one to hike with and a dry one to sleep with. with winter camping you only have a limited amount of daylight number 2, you need to have good shelter. here in southwest virginia a good 2 or 3 season tent will do. this time of year you're going to have the rain fly on. it tends to add a little bit of insulation. then there's staying warm at night and when it's wet and cold that can be hard but it's not impossible. with the warmest sleeping bag in the world, without a ground pad you're still going to end up being cold at night. i'll wake up cold if i roll of my sleeping bag at night. you feel like you rolled on to a cold bed of ice. a little bit of insulation pad goes a long way. last but not least you have to stay hydrated. your body just works better when you're hydrated. your muscles works better, your brain works better. you make better decisions throughout the day. so this winter not only go on a hike but stay out there for a night. less people, less bugs and less heat equals seeing more of your
