    VIDEO: Another one night stand

    Went out last Saturday to Carson-Pegasus Provincial Park, about 15km north of Whitecourt which is 2 hours drive NW of Edmonton.
    Temperatures were great, overnight low of -7c (21f) but was overcast which probably added to the balmy temps.
    I had some fuel issues with my ff stove not igniting and some of our water froze despite being left upside down in a snowbank overnight.
    But it was good to get out again!!

    Looked like fun. You must have adjusted that hammock 15 times Gotta find that sweet spot.

    What stove were you using that was giving you trouble? Just curious.

    Fancee Feast. Really didn't heat up my alcohol enough. I hate putting things in pockets! I'd like to devise a bag to hang around my neck to put batteries and fuel in to keep them up against my body for optimum heating.

    Great place with those fishing huts and all that snow. It probably isn’t, but it looks like it is always snowy there. Big thumbs up to the fast mo set up part, that was good! Thanks for the video!

    HK; NIce to see you out. As to the pouch around the neck idea i've been thinking about that as well. Haven't done anything yet but was thinking of something like a small, low profile ribz pack . fleece back, noseeum front.

    Great vid!

    Loved the high-speed setup. Note to newbies: See, it does take some fiddling to get things just right!
