The key to staying warm in the winter is to set up your fire to last all night, even through a snowstorm.

Build a long fire to heat your entire body while you’re lying down in front of it and you’ll wake up happy (sausages also help morale).

This tent is just big enough for one person. This setup keeps the heat from escaping out the back, and leaves the front open so the warmth of the fire reaches you, but not too much of the smoke.

Cozy.
