Bear Creek Preview: Keeping Warm, Looking Cool
Anyone that’s been to the Suwannee in November for Bear Creek knows what’s up with the weather. But, for those who will be experiencing it for the first time this year, prepare yourselves, because it’s gonna be a cold one. Luckily, we’ve put together some tips to help keep you warm and toasty this weekend.
I’m telling you, these things will save your life. Buy a whole box and I’m sure your whole campsite will be eternally grateful. You can even stick ’em in your socks to warm up your feet in the tent at night, just make sure you don’t pass out with them still in there…your toes will burst into flames–I’m speaking from experience here.

These mittens are awesome because you can flip back the flap and still have full use of the phalanges.

Leggings, leggings, and more leggings. Last year, I wore leggings over my leggings…not kidding. Liquid leggings are made out of a nylon material that is much thicker than normal cotton leggings, so they keep you mad warm. Not to mention, they’re awesome and shiny, and from American Apparel, they come in just about every color known to man.

Scarves are so clutch to keep you warm in the Suwannee. I’m all about infinity scarves because there’s no tying involved–it’s just one big loop. All you have to do is keep layering until your neck is nice and snug, or pull it up over the back of your head for extra coziness. In my experience, I always end up looking like this:
And don’t worry boys, they make scarves for you, too.

Stance Socks are some of the coolest and comfiest socks ever. Just ask DubEra’s own Maxx Mcinerney, he lives in them.

You may not do any snowboarding in the Suwannee, but that doesn’t mean a solid onesie can’t help you out! Look for our own Chris Tart in his ridiculous ski-suit this weekend

So it’s cold as hell and you want to rage until 4am? Sounds like a job for our beloved coffee to me! French press, instant coffee or pre-made can all be made super easy with a portable stove-top so plan ahead and thank us later!
All of these things will definitely help to keep you warm in the Suwannee this year, but really, the most important thing you can bring is your dancing shoes!
