Do you think four sleeping people, a dog and a woodstove would fit in your tent?

Ya, we had 3 guys sleeping plus wood stove, and had some personal space, plus room for gear. I think 4 plus dog and stove would be fine. Tent stays warmer with a couple people in it. A relatively level tent site would help, since sleeping around the edges seemed the best format if your not cuddling with your sweetheart.

Think of me what you will, I got a little space to fill.

I heard back from Brennen at Lite Outdoors the other day about my stove. He offered me a new stove body and baffle, or a refund. I supposedly have a new stove body and baffle on the way. However he also admitted to intentionally delaying sending out the replacement body before my trip because he wanted to see what happened if I used it more. This was after I spent time and money doing a few test burns at his request to see how the stove reacted.

It looks like he is standing by his product (which is good), but I don't appreciate unknowingly being his R&D guinea pig.

If there was another cylinder stove with the diameter and length of the Lite Outdoors stove I would have gone for the refund. Hopefully he is done experimenting and will actually send it out this time.
