I apologize for the late reply. I personally do not take mine out to soak during hibernation. I would however make sure the substrate is moist but not wet. I have always resorted back to what they would be doing in nature with very good results. However I also know that is easier for me to say as I live in there native range. Mine are all outside dug in and I wont check on them until march or so as I know they will be OK. But to answer your question I do not think I would soak. I would keep the temps around 55 degrees or so and the substrate moist or damp but not wet. I would say if you can squeeze out water in your hand its probably to wet. the humidity you menioned sounds good to me. Feel free to e-mail me at Sheehan.allen@yahoo.com as I can get back to you quicker.

I hope I helped some
Allen Sheehan
