I like that stove. It looks like a Big ole Firemug :D He should try lighting it from the top. I missed whether or not he had an adjustable flue. It seems like it would be beneficial to slow down the fire in a stove that is tapered so much.
I love that SL3 shelter too but it is just a little short for me unless I am laying against the middle pole.
Nice setup all around :ugeek:

Yes, the video shows he has an adjustable flue gizmo.

I finally got myself off dead center and ordered some material to make a small teepee shelter. :roll:

Abela over at http://hikelighter.com/ is going to do some research on hot tents this winter season. we'll have to keep an eye on him. Here is a quote from the link:
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.

While I was walmart I saw one of the mugs you use for the "fire mug" they had about 5 of them. I resisted :P I was in control :mrgreen:

I'm starting off small to get my feet wet sorta. :lol: Small to the extent my feet may stick out under the wall :lol: It's going to be 12ft in diameter so the height might wind up being 4' :o maybe less :lol: I'll start my grandson off early into camping 8-) I may have to use it as a tarp over my hammock. :idea:

Nice video. I watched his other ones too. The only downside (and it might be a big one) is that he cannot boil water with the cone stove. I think that problem could be solved with a bit of flattened flue pipe. Just a small section with a flat to set his cup on. That teepee tent looks great too. I like the half floor way he set it up.

That half floor tub looks comforting :D I like it also.

A closer look at his other stove:
