You might look at a sheepherder-style stove that is collapsible and lightweight. A friend had one that he used in his wall tent for a while, and it worked really well. It's now somewhere in MT after a horse spooked on a pack trip one fall. I would want something light and collapsible so as to not take up much space, because I'm guessing it won't get used every night of the trip, only on the colder nights.

By the waterside I will lay my head.

This actually could be a back up stove for kayakers or primary for small group, say two, ultra lite types.

I'm not saying do this stove.

But this guy might build something great that I buy someday.

Wood stoves are great

Love wood stoves. However, for our "group" a portable propane fire pit is a better answer. You can't use it in an enclosed space - downside. No ash - upside. They are warm and easy to set up. You can use under a rain shade. We've taken one on two winter trips and one March trip - loved it. We dispose of ash by placing in our wet garbage box - really kills the odor. Ash is not a problem if it's cold and dry - hot is bad, wet is bad. Last nights fire is not an issue but if you want some heat in the AM - propane. When it's not raining we build a fire. I'm including a link - you can find better prices on Amazon. Good luck.
