Heated Tents for Cold Spirits

I got pretty burned out on business, society and life in the weeks between the Lehman holiday and Thanksgiving.

 

But I feel pretty good now and maybe I have this tent and its handy therapeutic appliance to thank for it.

 

The Vertex Shelter and Ti Stove stay home when I get all crazy about gear for long walking, but for car camping and backcountry base camping, there is something to be said about sharing the warmth of an … errr … indoor fire with friends and family.

 

What decidedly-non-SUL-gear heats your spirits?
