It's amazing how much wood is needed to stay warm and do some cooking on the stove. I hope one day to go on a trip into Canada and see how they cut down standing dead wood.

Been thinking also about bathroom situation... last time on a holiday weekend the port o johns at the LOJ were disgusting. Hope they are cleaner this time, might have a plan in the works.
Coldfeet... Next week I'll be pitching my tent next to this stash. It's been seasoned over a year now and should last 4-5 days easy.

As far as the Port-a-John's go. The winter camping classic book Paradise Below Zero by Calvin Rutstrum:

Page 18 "... explaining how they might go about most comfortably performing their urgent body functions in sub-zero temperatures and snow that could be waist-deep. A square of turned-up birch bark is used as a receptacle, the function performed in it inside the warm tent, and immediate disposition made in the wood stove. The bark creates a quick hot flame, and with ventilation no factor in a tent, all is sans gene."

I'm looking forward to our February adventure. Cheers, Kelly
