Body temperature is lowered by:
- Getting Wet (due to Rain or falling in The River)
- The ambient temperature being lower than the Cold Rating of the clothes Scout is wearing
- The temperature tends to drop when the sun goes down and the further Scout travels down the River
Ensuring that you get enough rest is important for being able to survive in the wild. If Scout doesn't get enough sleep, she may collapse somewhere dangerous and be unable to defend herself.
