    So since I don't intend to eat an entire London Broil by myself and believe me I could if I tried, I should move it to the group column then, correct?

    "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.

    I would like to see that demo.

    Sounds like a great way to pass what's left of the time between eating and all around shenanigans.

    ===> Well, you can always help with the gathering and chopping of firewood then! I always carry extra cutting and chopping tools.

    You can always chase away any porcupines in the area. We had enough trouble with one at the Fall NEHHA. I would hate to see the same thing happen to Ember or Marley that happened to Hunter.

    Well there shouldn't be any porcupines in the area. Now watch after I say that we will over run with them.

    Skypainter there will not be a need to gather and chop firewood. The ranger is providing us with a bunch of firewood that is ready to go. Plus I will have some hardwood in the truck encase we want to cook on a fire.
