    If you look at titanium goat, the cost isn't as bad as one would think. I have thought on and off for years about putting heat source in my tent. Kifaru, Ed T (seek outside), and titanium goat all make nice stoves but I think Nick's stove is just about the perfect size for a shelter as small as mine.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Thanks for your words, my friends !
    Swany, i will really think about a chimney... even if i'm quite scared looking at what happened at David Pearson's with his Dakota tent's chimney one... (note: if you didn't have a look at his youtube site 'til now, i suggest to both of you to visit it, "David Pearson fun in the woods" is his channel. He's a good hilarious man but imo very skilled in wood-related arguments, behind to have an high-end technical preparation).
    Have a nice day, mates !.

    Thanks to Kodiakman who showed his own one.

    I feel a little bit better, thank you.
    I'm really trying to do all that i can.
    Thanks God it's friday.

    I just picked up an Imperial Schrade for general around the house duty last week! Very sharp out of the box. Loving it so far for general purpose box and package opening. Mine is a bit of a darker brown color than the one pictured.

    I love the bookshelves. I'm happy to see that you arrange the books largest to smallest on the shelves. I thought I was the only person in the world who did that. My wife thinks I'm weird. :D
