Nice video.  What were you fishing for and what lake?

Looks like a nice trip and a nice place to camp and explore!

Be sure to fire up and burn the stove outside before your first trip.  You want the oils to burn off the metal outside rather than inside your new tent on the first night.  Signed, The Voice of Experience.

Based on dimensions, the medium won't take any more space on your sled... 2" wider won't make a difference, length is the same.  You might want to be considering the large stove.

Also make sure that you are not simply telescoping the pipe.  The shortest segment goes into the end of the next larger segment and so on.

Yes.  The Kni-Co pipes can be nested for storage, but you don't just telescope the nested pipes to put onto your stove.  Each segment fits onto the next segment to build the length of stovepipe needed.

My welding blanket for under or near the stove is a basic fiberglass mat about 3' by 5'.  It has a seamed edge... I don't think cutting down would be a good option as the material would likely fray and come unwoven.  I don't know if scissors would cut the fabric.  The fiberglass material does not have a lot of strength and seems prone to puncture (think chair leg or stove leg pressure), but it drains well and makes an okay floor mat.

Be careful with strong winds shaking the tent which can loosen the stove pipe.  Be sure your stovepipe support is strong and secure.

This is on my calendar for next year!

What is the policy on firewood?  Is wood available on site or bring your own?  Some states and locations are restrictive on transporting wood for fear of disease.

I'm surprised there's not more chatter on here about this......................

Signed up and getting pumped for my first Winter Camping Symposium!!  Hoping there is a wooded spot to set up my Campfire Tent that needs plenty of tie-offs.

I've burned my Kni-Co pipes around 15 times over the past two years and have not had a problem.  But I am going to check my welds and ensure that I pack some wire in case field repairs are needed.  Thanks for the heads-up!

Winter Camping Photos and Videos / Re: Night Sky in Algonquin
« on: November 11, 2015, 09:13:49 am »
This season I want to get some night shots of my tent, surroundings and night sky.  I have a basic digital camera and understand I will have to experiment and play with settings to get a good result.  Any starting point tips for a beginner?

ps... beautiful pictures!

Hope you don't mind, but I looked at a couple other of your albums.  Added Porcupine yurt camping to my to-do list!
