Hot Tent Survival Camping: How to “Stay Warm In the Harshest Winter Climate”

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

How can you stay warm even in the coldest of climates if you are compelled to trek through the great wilderness around us?

There’s no way to know the exact conditions you may have to endure, or the situation that will lead way to the SHTF we have all been anticipating.

But you can be ready, and practice to hone your skills until that day comes.

Whether camping or bugging out, there are some good tips and skills for adapting for harsh winters, and these may come in handy, particularly if you live in the northern parts of the country.

On top of the appropriate warm gear, it would be wise to be able to control heat while backpacking or on the run. While it isn’t easy to do in every situation, it is possible even in a temporary structure.

One of the best strategies to use a portable, wood-burning stove designed to safely set up inside tents, with the stove exhaust exiting through a sectioned-pipe (also portable) that is designed to vent through hole in the roof of the tent or shelter.

Best of all, these stoves are relatively affordable (or you could make your own).

    I’ve always liked the idea of a “tent stove” for cold weather camping, and there are a LOT of stoves out there, but they are often quite expensive ($250-400).

    After looking at a lot of the reviews and styles, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s better to make your own “ammo can stove” from the big 20mm ammo cans. (the smaller ammo-can stoves from the 50 caliber cans, are cute, and ok for smaller tents or “living in the car”, but would require almost continuous loading of more wood every hour?)

    The tent stoves that have the round top (cylinder stoves) is not going to do a good job as a cooking surface.

    There are many youtube videos about making and using the small wood stoves, tent stoves, etc.
    There are DIY videos of how to make the “ammo can” stoves.

    Be careful and learn about all the HAZARDS, and how to SAFELY arrange everything so you don’t start the tent on fire. (heat shields)

    You can burn the area where the stove pipe goes out the roof, or a fire under the stove, side walls, or sparks out the chimney can start fires on the outside of the tent or burn the forest down. (spark arrestor is the right thing.)
