8. What to pack........ cold weather clothes, sleeping bag, stuff for taking showers,....?
Production provides extreme weather gear for a designated task, like ice climbing, sleeping atop an ice field, riding snowmobiles, etc. Still, teams are expected to bring windbreakers/fleece/rainjackets/ponchos for just ordinary cold. Some teams bring sleeping bags (more so in earlier seasons), some bring blankets and/or sleeping pads, some bring space blankets, and others just rough it by wearing multiple layers. At the other end of the spectrum, be prepared to wear production-provided speedos, lycra, etc for specific tasks in the water, on ice rinks, on stage, etc.
