    It may sound daft, but standing for many hours in a frozen forest seems a bit challenging!
    Proper boots (Muckboots from Canada) is the first thing...

    Put some fir branches under your feet, it isolates you from the frozen ground.
    Bring a disposable grill with you, and some swedish sausages with the proper breads.
    Do not forget a small camping seat, your buttocks will not be wet!
    In case of extreme cold, take some logs with you and make a fire.

    @Tomhlord: Ski wear, Woolen underwear both top and legs under your ski wear, water proof boots (I use the SOREL winterboots), Bring wood, knife and axe for fire, Jagermeister/beer and remember water, Coffee/tea you can cook over the fire, Find places in the sun if it is sunny, Use grane tree leaves/sticks to stand on. Have a great time :-)
    Have a great day, Rob

    You can't stay warm, simple as that. No matter what you're wearing, first your feet will start to freeze and there's no coming back from that. But hey, it's all part of the experience.

    Are you all going on a Northpole expedition?

    I have been until now 14 times in Rally Sweden and NEVER had any problems with the cold wearing standard ski outfit (underwear and ski wear) and good winter trekking boots suitable for -30 degrees and more. Maybe cap and gloves to change if they get wet. If it is a really cold year just put one or two tshirts more on and thats it.

    No need for fires, coffee, soups, alcohol, knives or axes or whatever. How do you bring all this stuff to the stage?
    I prefer to stay flexible and change my location during the day on the stage - then there is absolutely no need to build half a campsite.

    Hi Per on WRC+ you can see onboards from the 2016 version , I know its the opposite direction and not exactly the same but at the minute its better than nothing and gives a bit of an idea of the road, if anyone gets the password for the stage videos I would appreciate a pm as well.

    Thanks Satnav. I already done that, with Mads, Seb and Historic Volvo of Mats Thorszelius...

    And yes, you get to know places where there´s open Crests and some stuff like that. But more could have happened since 2016 so I´m curious.
    I have my thoughts of where to stay, but the more I get it confirmed the better… and from correct direction.

    But thanks anyway, mate.

    I have been in Rally Sweden four times and those have helped me a lot: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hands-Singl.../dp/B00GUH39YQ

    Stay away from alcohol. It makes you feel warm momenteraly, but otherwise will cool you down even more and the only way to avoid that is to drink more...and more...and even more.
