    Default Sauna/Tent

    Hey guys, I found a cool thing on ebay. It's a siberian sauna/tent that fits in a bag.
    I'm not sure if it's good though...I will rely on what you guys think about it.
    Here is the link to the Sauna/tent http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...DLVI%26ps%3D54 <--- long link
    Thanks for the help.

    I have no idea if that tent is good or not, but it reminded me of a time when we wanted a steam bath, so we built a large fire and put rocks in it. While they were heating we built this tepee from dead logs and wrapped it with tarps. Then we used a shovel to put the hot rocks in a hole in the middle of the tepee, shut the door, and poured water on the rocks. Great fun.

    I guess, if there is a point here at all, it's that you could build one as needed. It's not like it has to be rain proof, or be able to withstand a great storm.

    All you need is a blue tarp and some saplings to make a teepee.

    cut the floor out of an old cheap tent if you don't want to build a tepee the hot rocks work really well in a tent or tepee
