"super shelters" make winter camping a blast. I went out last Thursday and had a fire four feet from my hammock with a reflector behind the fire and another reflector behind my black hammock tarp. I didn't go with a full blown "super shelter" because it was only 20 degrees. I was toasty warm all night and had a nice chimney effect for the smoke to go straight up.
Maybe if I secure a nice spot for my hammock, I'll do the same setup as a demonstration for those not familiar with fires, reflectors, and winter camping in general. Or sky, we could setup close to each other with a fire in between us and each having a reflector behind us.
