So, soon I will be on my way to visit with Lucas the fellow who runs Buroak Wilderness Adventures.
This is to take a look at his camp setup and see one of his demos and instruction seminars for a follow-up review. There will be some photos and hopefully a video or two for the review.
See you soon or pop on over to Buroak Wilderness Adventures and we will see you there along with Zelda the Prepper Dog (sort of like a guide dog but she brings me sticks he he )!

Q. How long have you stayed in a tent?
A. What do you want to know about living in a Tent in the Winter?
I have done so in the past on more than one occasion, and will do so again soon.
Lived in Tents,
all told total time or per occurrence?
Experience From Artic Warefare and Artic Survival, pre military including Cadets, military training in the Prairies and Northern Ontario, post military in BC and Mid level Ontario, quite a bit of time. Now to be fare some of the time in the military was in Tents, in Underground Shelters, in Vehicles and in some shell scrapes, under ground sheets and in Bivi Bags, all told, about 2.5 yrs total under tents or ground sheets. Longest stretch was aprox 4 months, though there were some times in Vehicles and trenches as well.
Least comfortable was the time in the hammock and time on the side of the Mountain in the Peranies/Peraneese (sp) Mountain Range in France. In France I had a new sleeping mat and it was slippery, although warm if you stayed on it all night! The Hammock was the get in and it wraps around you type, not the type with the wooden rod top and bottom that keeps the mesh away from your face and makes it easier when you have to get up quickly to pee in the middle of the night 0_o
Now, thinking on it some more, the total might be about 2 yrs higher as I forgot to add in Winter Camping and Spring, Summer and Fall camping both during my time in the Military and Pre Military and post military. Really not 100% sure, but from 3.5-6yrs total??
That also includes the times that I made Debris Hut / Wickup and other related survival shelters, during the summer and winter months.
