Hot tent and stove

20180111_130731

This is the packed size of the entire set up, i used my tomahawk as a size contrast. I just bought a Belgian army Bergan and this fit into that pack with room to spare and doesn’t weigh to much.

Parts used to make stove and teepee

Tee pee

10x14ft poly tarp

gromets

heavy duty gorilla duct tape

cheap para cord

Stove

18″ by 10″ stainless steel cooking pot

steel hinge

sheet of steel for latch, grill mounts and front vent

5x steel cooking trays for lightweight stove pipe

car exhaust pipe elbow and male/female connection attached to pot

steel pipe and chain for tri pod

various nuts and bolts

2x steel grills

 

I am looking forward to using this set up again, I just need to adjust the jack a little. All in all I had the stove burning for over 12 hours continuously. In these extreme cold environments it is a good habit to keep a pot of water warm over the fire at all times.  The stove enabled me to do that in a safe way.

Thanks for watching I hope this inspires you to get out, create gear and enjoy the wilderness.

Loads more to come

Here is part 2 of my Natural navigation series

Between the 12 and the hour hand (pointed at the sun) on your watch shows you which way is south.

When you see a number of snow dunes like this all shaped in the same direction, this is a good indicator of which way the prevailing wind is coming from.
