    help with this sentence

    Court heard that because they had trekked off into the dead of winter without appropriate gear, the group's leaders slept in vehicles with portable heaters, which suited them fine because it enabled them to privately discuss people's skill levels.

    hi there,
    I wonder what does these underlined parts mean please.
    thanks a lot.

    Re: help with this sentence

    A trek is a walk, but it is more than just walking as a means of everyday transit: it can be walking for the sake of walking (for the pleasure of walking), or it can be walking to get somewhere remote where vehicles cannot access. Trekking off means to set off on a trek.

    The dead of winter means the worst/coldest/darkest part of winter: the middle of winter.
