I confess I'm less interested in the hunt than the tent and cooking.

The question didn't differentiate what type of trash is burned. I burn paper, food scraps, and pack the rest out, along with other stuff left by others (as has been said earlier).

I recall the neo air being noisy. Am I remembering correctly? We love our Exped 9 pads. Heavy, expensive, warm, comfortable. Wonder if the Exped 7 might be an alternative for you.

What is the R value of that thermarest? You might need to upgrade that as well.

We love the Exped 9 but the 7 is way cheaper.

Canvas tents breathe well so there is no condensation, yet they are waterproof, or at least mine is. Depending on the fabric, they can be HEAVY. Snowtrekker is one of the lighter at 7oz/yard fabric...

Took us 4 hours to ski 1 mile back to our car after a 2' dump of heavy snow occurred while we were camping at Jay Pass a few years ago. (Then another 2 to shovel out our car!)
