Snowtrekker Minimalist 7x8 Crew for Sale. I only used this tent once. Still has that new tent smell!  They sell for $810 new. I'm asking $700! Including a Small Knico Stove

I bought this tent last fall, as the tag will indicate. The tent is in brand new shape. It was dried out and stored properly after it's first use. The stove I've had a couple years, and does have a little rust, but is solid with no holes.

PM me if interested. I am located in the Central UP of Michigan, and willing to negotiate delivery up to 100 miles. Otherwise buyer pays for shipping.

General Winter Camping Discussion / Map Storage/Organization
« on: November 27, 2016, 08:44:24 pm »
My Dad recently gave me about 50+ topographic maps, many with canoe/hiking routes on them. Right now most of them are rolled, with some being folded. What way do you store your maps? Do you have anyway you organize your maps? I'm looking for ideas now that it's winter. Also, does anyone have a map coating manufacturer you would recommend? I'd like to coat them since most are just plain paper.

Any help input/suggestions/help appreciated!

Tents and Shelters / Picking out my first snowtrekker...
« on: July 24, 2016, 09:05:19 pm »
I'm looking at my first snowtrekker. I'm new to winter hot camping and I'm looking to get something where I can head out with 2 to 3 people, but going solo in it wouldn't be considered ridiculous.

Right now I'm leaning towards the Snowtrekker 10x10 Alpine EXP Crew. It looks to be somewhere between a 2 or 3 man, high enough to stand up in and takes a 3 inch stove pipe. I also like the idea of less tie-outs and a tighter pitch.

Others I'm still considering and haven't ruled out completely are most of the 8x10 models, including shortwall and basecamp.

I would probably consider some 9 x 11.5 models, but with a 5 inch stove pipe I'd like to be able to stay with a smaller stove for the solo trips.

Does anyone have a 10x10? Does the Small Kni-Co Stove keep up with it? I know the 9x11.5 model calls for a 5in stove pipe, but is only 3 sq ft bigger than the 10x10, is the small stove big enough for the 10x10?

I'd mainly be hiking into locations and setting up a basecamp. I don't plan on moving much once set up.

Thoughts? Opinions? Everything appreciated!

Winter Camping Safety / Hot camping, question?
« on: January 01, 2009, 03:49:26 pm »
so i get the basic idea of hot camping, but i have a question about food and animal safety, most of you cook your food inside your tent on the stove, I've learned when i was little to cook away from the tent and to not keep any food in the tent in case of any animals that may try to get into your tent to get at the food. Am i missing something?
