I've used the Kifaru tipi and wood stove for winter base camping and agree it is a great way to go. Though my success with actual cooking on the stove was a bit hit or muss compared with a more common liquid fuel stove.

And since I've never fired a gun I think I'd have to take more food.

Great stuff, Ryan, and a great looking shelter. Wood stoves are a bit thin on the ground in the UK but attitudes are changing. We could have done with one during our New Year break as it stayed at -14 C for three days.

What ultralight cot are you using, Ryan?

@Curt - it's a Luxury Lite cot, about 2 lbs.
