Hello there! I am also going in Jan to OBC RC. I have a question regarding weather that time of year. Is it very cold? I am from New England so no stranger to the cold but wondered what Texas is like in winter? See you there!
It can be cold. I just got back (nov 25th).
It was 39 degrees on several mornings......which is not that cold when you are inside
. But, 39 is rather chilly when you are standing outside on the FOB at attention in the dark or riding in the back of a 5 ton, or doing combatives---everything is outdoors at camp..... a few nights the tent heat didn't work for most areas (in the tent), people slept in their hats, long underwear and pt gear, and were still cold. During the day it is beautiful....
Bring or buy undergarmets, hats, gloves......
