Presented in Part-1 of Winter Safety Made Real was the footing for this whole WSMR series: the purpose and approach to winter safety, along with “Why Winter Experiences Fail”, “The Taboos of Cold Weather”, “The Wives’ Tales of Winter”, and An Introduction to PALS™.
Part-2 presents the key points and performance possibilities using PALS™ (Phillips Arctic Living System™) and why Jim does what he does and the benefit it can bring others. One of the most important parts in this presentation will be the in depth explanation of the body’s physiological response to the cold and the key steps to keeping hands and feet warm. Possessing this understanding alone can dramatically change a person’s comfort and safety in the cold.
Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question "What if?" and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work. The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of "stuff."
