[Hammock Camping] Re: Tarp Tent
- If you have a small enclosed area, like a tent, you can light a
candle and warm your hands in particular and the rest of the area a
little as well. Works great for a few minutes on chilling mornings
to warm up, if you can do it safely... the safely part is where the
cookpot comes into play. With the hammock tarptent I was thinking
you would set it on the ground beside you and also need the high
walls of the cookpot to keep any ground level breeze from blowing
out the candle. I have used that before on cold mornings in a tent
and Ed has mentioned that cavers(?) sometimes do that for warmth as
well for most of the night.
