    If it's likely to freeze overnight don't leave the pee bottle outside or you'll be stuck carrying around a bottle of frozen pee the next day until it melts and you can dump it.

    Thanks, handlebar. I've been debating whether or not I'll need my YaxTrax, or something else, like minispikes. I guess we'll just have to keep watching the weather and wait and see.
