The red stuff is cheaper.
I don't know that is a good idea Jeremy although wearing the red one has a certain appeal, or maybe the hot pink, however I keep all greasy things well away from my optics.
I like a balaclava and a scarf and one of those Russian looking hats that have flaps you pull down over your ears.
You know the temperature in the van right now is 0 as we have have a major change over night. Lower temp can only be good for the fires.
One thing I find really good for cold is to fold up a blanket and wrap it around your waist like a dress..have it going all the way to the ground and you won't get anything warmer. Sounds odd but it really works.

Yes there is nothing under my dress other than double undies, and trackies pants covered with conventional jeans all black of course to reduce stray light.

It's a name and I did not think if only for a moment that somone had actually put cat crap in the form of lip stick. My focus was merely upon what havoc greasy substances do with optics.

I thought you must have rubbed cat crap on your lips and found it was good for being outside in the cold.

Sorry I am an old grumpy man without the sense of humour you youngsters have so please forgive me.
