Where I got frostbite
52 miles from my village of Igloolik Nunavut Canada. 292 metres above sea level.
It was the 3rd week of January and I decided to go hunting, as it turned out it was -60 d. C. with the windchill. We were looking for caribou and my snowmobile windshield is very low profile. when we stopped for some tea, my partner saw my face and said " Oww man! Your face is 'frostbitten!'" So I thawed it with snow so I would not feel so much pain later on and it worked. My fingers also got frostbite but I did not thaw them with snow so I feel numb and stinging on the fingers.
- Wear a fur lined parka with smaller hood around the face.
