Hi Ale, I love that way you include SloMo in all of your educational experiences. He is one experienced mascot! I am excited to follow his next adventure in the Arctic!

How long did it take to put all of that on and what temperature( I don't know how to word this) does it maintain to keep you warm in cold areas like Alaska ( I mean how how does it get in there so you don't freeze to death).

Alejandra Martinez replied:

It didn't take that long. The point is to keep you at 98.6 degrees, so you want to get as close to that as possible.
