    Default Snowtrekker Tent on the Yukon Quest Trail

    Sorry folks. I promised to update my ski-kit video but my son has a bad foot that his ski boots exacerbate. So we went snow-shoeing instead. Good news is you can haul a lot more gear by sled rather than Pulk. So we brought the Snowtrekker Tent and stove and a bunch of tools and enough food for a week. I always bring too much food!

    Really like the Bahco Timber saw. Even the Kids got it to work. Went down to -25C but the inside of the tent (At the Peak) stayed between -10C (Just Coals) and 38C (Too much wood). Colder at bed level. Handy.

    Nice video! Fun to see a family enjoying time in the woods!

    Do you have any more pictures of your stove / stove baffle? I would like to build a stove for winter camping.

    Thanks

    Here you go

    1) The Baffle



    2) The Stove when it wa younger




    Basically I made the stove from black stove pipe. Two pieces of pipe (I think 7") put together after being squared and steel riveted to reinforce the seem joint. Front and back made out of stove material as well. With a sheet metal brake it's pretty easy. There is a book by Alaskan, Ole Wik that helps design ideas.
