Not my video.

I've had pretty good luck with these for cold weather camping. There's a learning curve, and a bit of prep involved so don't wait last minute to rely on this.

Good Video! Just wondering about the Heat factor, though. You'd pretty much have to lie right next to it in order to stay warm all night. Nevertheless, it would be a great fire to keep aflame in order to light other fire(s).

What about that neat thing where you fill a big drinking mug with boiling water and put it under the blankets at your feet? that keeps you pretty warm.
Also if you go a few nights absorbing the cold, like picture winter in shorts and t for a couple days a week, shivering, your body will adjust sort of like a survival mechanism & you'll become alot warmer at night, or whenever you sleep.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
