Out of curiosity for those of you who use tents, do any of you put tarps or groundpads underneath to protect the bottom of your tent? My experience camping has always been with poorly cleared sites covered in poky, rocky, thorny bits which just love slowly ripping tent floors apart. I found during geology field camp, only those in the know did this trick (including myself), and very few people ever cared to bother.

Yeah, ground sheets are key to keeping you tent in good shape.
Does your BOB at least have: water, basic tools, fire, food, first-aid kit, and shelter?

misanthropist, is that a ti goat stove there? HCH’s looks nice, I’m just wondering if it came with legs and if there was anything that you didn’t like about it. Is there anyway you could post a pic of it disassembled? Im really liking the idea of a Wyoming lost and found multicam tipi with a titanium stove…

Actually, that's just one I built. 12" x 6" dia stove pipe, end caps...cost about $20 I think. The chimney is just stainless shim stock.

That's nice, anyway you could send me a pm on how to make one or maybe make a thread about it. Im pretty broke right now and need a stove for my parachute tipi, and I would prefer something with a stove pipe on it like this so that any smoke will be farther up and away from me. I really like the design of the cylinder stove.

Go-light shangri-la 1 nest with a sportsman blanket as a tarp. Probably could stand to have a bigger tarp, but it rained moderately heavy that night and I woke up dry and toasty. The nest itself packs down to the size of a football.

Parachute tipi with bamboo poles. Stays warm on these cold nights. I use bed sheets or ponchos for doors, dig out a fire pit with my etool and have a pully at the top for pulling up a bear bag for when I'm gone. Since I was in a hurry and didnt have stakes anyway I just put rocks along the bottom to secure it. The parachute is 35' diameter that I got off ebay for $50 shipped :mrgreen:

This mimic's my set up also, though I just upgraded from a 9x9' Noah's Tarp to a 10x12 Equinox Siltarp. TONS of room to hang out and cook under now, and went from 32oz down to 21oz!

ROo - pitch your tarp on a diamond and you'll have better coverage.

I'm digging thumper's tarp tent and stove upthread, and that Wyominglostandfound tarp and net combo is elegant.

I really like seeing these pics for the settings as well as the tents. Keep them coming!

This was last weekend in the Anza Borrego Desert:
Tent is a Kodiak 10'X10' canvas tent
Image

This was a week before in the wilds of Baja California. Tent is a Kelty Ridgeway 4 and I think this was it's last trip. It's covered with a Kelty Noah's tarp 12.
