  • CDN Thanksgiving Hammock Hot Tent Weekend

    Getting a early start to the winter season with some snow in the hills and in the air with temps just touching the freeze point. No better way than to spend a long weekend in the back country with the hot tent enjoying its warmth.
    Saturday we spent about 5hrs going about 15km just to get into this camp site which is part of a old mine site
    Sunday was spent slashing back the brambles to open road up in the last few km's....mother nature is relentless, then walk up the mountain side to soak it in
    Monday the drive out was faster since it is all down hill making the obstacles less challenging

    Sweet tent! any pics of the inside? How close were you from the stove? I'm interested in building a hot hammock tent, just haven't finalized the details. Thanks for posting, looks like views were worth the effort.

      How close were you from the stove?
      The tent is about 12'x6' and stove (seek outside ti large) sits in the corner with plenty of room around it including when the hammock is hung.(pick shows end of hammock top left)
      Tent Ridge line is offset to keep the hammock away from the stove.
      Tent is made from 1.1oz silpoly from RSBTR. Stove and Tent weigh in at about 7lbs combined.....3.5lbs each
      There are 3 zippers on each end opening to adjust opening for the hammock straps and one to unzip to get out/in of the tent
      Also be aware that you will get burn holes from sparks but nothing that some seam seal can not reseal up....nature of the beast less one can create a nonplugging spark arrestor....... one day I'll have to build a turbine core spark arrestor and see if that works. It is the creosote that causes all the problems as sparks go for me.

              I like your treeless hang setup!
              And that view ain't exactly half bad either.

              I just setup my new hammock hot tent for the first time this morning, and I was thinking it would be nice to figure out a way to do a single tree hang if the need ever came up.
