Daytime.

Wear:
Underwear
Jog pants
leather trousers
paid of socks
pair of carrier bags (on feet)
second pair of socks
pair of leather boots
t shirt
cagoule
tiger-print leotard
furry bodywarmer

And run around a bit. All waterproof and warm. Yay!

Night time
Version 1:
Sleep in t shirt, socks and balaclava using bedding that goes:
airbed
picnic blanket
4 season sleeping bag with a 3 season sleeping bag inside it
large, heavy, fake fur and fleece blanket on top
large wool cloak on top of that
hug a hot water bottle tightly

Wake up cold at 7.30am after about 4 hours' sleep.

Version 2:

Find spare bunk availability at 5am while chatting to irdm, sleep until 9am, struggle to leave cosy warm bedding to obtain food, eventually managing it at 10am.

Result:
Super-sleepy Max.

Carrier bags on your feet will give you trench foot

And so will walking around in puddles formed in your boots and socks. There wasn't much option. I survived!

"tiger-print leotard"

Well that's the lucky ol' monsters distracted ;-)

Under all the rest you only see the sleeves. This is a good thing. And kinda the point.
