So, I'm leaving the 3rd week of January to go up to northern Canada to work. I'm going to be going gold exploration drilling with my fathers company. The work isn't extremely physically demanding; there is a lot of standing around. Regardless, you are still outside in the extreme cold (down to -40C) and on your feet all day. We will be living in a camp with a good and will be able to have 3 or 4 good meals a day. Breakfast is around 7 am; lunchs are packed so I could bring two, one for around 11 and the other for around 4; dinner is around 7 then bed time at 9 usually.
How should I make the best of this? I highly doubt I will have access to weights or anything of the sort. I was thinking I could try some body weight exercises but I really don't know how effective those would be.
Bodyweight exercises aren't the worst thing - pushups, pullups, chinups, triceps extensions leaning against a wall, dips using 2 chairs. Of course maybe you could get some sandbags to help this out......just a thought. Make sure you eat enough. Extreme cold makes your metabolism fly, so make sure you eat enough or you'll lose size/strength.

Pullups, handstand pushups, pistols. You'll be fine. And probably too tired to exercise!
Sounds like a very interesting trip.
How long is it, i hope that its not permanent, or thats gonna make it really difficicult for you to bbuild
