Hot Tent stove

Always finding something interesting for wood burning. Take a peek at what I found:
A site devoted to lightweight backpacking
Speaking of the winter hiking season, I had really hoped to get a ‘hot tent’ shelter setup ready for this winter but the funds and time at home to make it all happen just did not work out. I think it would be wonderful to be able to get a hot tent setup that would allow for a sub 8 pound BPW 4-season setup. Looking at two different shelters and two different titanium wood stoves to help make this happen. Have been emailing a few guys I know that have hot tent shelters to get some insights into all of this. I have found it hard to continue the educational process of hiking when I am out doing the same thing so much and not really pushing myself into new types of hiking situations. I have learned a fair amount about fabrics, metals, plastics, and manufacturing this year, but there have not be very many hiking specific tips I have learned this year, so I thought I would start doing some cold weather hiking to try to learn some new things.
I finally got myself off dead center and ordered some material to make a small teepee shelter.
I'm starting off small to get my feet wet sorta. Small to the extent my feet may stick out under the wall It's going to be 12ft in diameter so the height might wind up being 4' maybe less I'll start my grandson off early into camping I may have to use it as a tarp over my hammock.Ridgerunner wrote:I finally got myself off dead center and ordered some material to make a small teepee shelter.
