Well, the title is pretty self-explanatory haha. I set up a couple tents like Russian nesting dolls in some moderately cold weather. I used the insulated otter vortex ice fishing shelter for the outer layer, and for the inner layer I attempted to use candles to heat the tent system, and I do believe I will stick to my propane solutions for warmth from this point on.

    I read a post apocalyptic novel called 'The Last Canadian' about a guy at an old fishing camp who has to winter over. He used a front end loader to move one of the cabins into the main cabin. He filled the area between the two walls with wood that he split for heating/cooking. I always thought that that would have been real cozy because even though the cabins were not insulated they had wood floors and he would have been 5 or 6 feet above the earth and had a dead air space of at least 5-10 feet all around. I think he jury rigged a stovepipe so he had some kind of wood stove inside the smaller cabin.

    First you didn't put a heavyweight tarp down for your floor, then you put 4 rocks in the fire then put the rocks in a metal bucket,put a piece of flat wood under the metal bucket (so u don't scorch the fabric of the tent) put the bucket inside with you in the 2 man or woman dome tent. Don't forget the artic sleeping bag. N a heavy animal pelt to put under your body between the air mattress n tent bottom. Oh yeah a foot pump to pump up the air mattress is needed. That's how a former girl scout would camp in the winter. N I would have had a snow mobile suit on as well. N my rabbit Elmer Fudd hat, artic gloves.long under wear, boots that are rated to -25 F . Battery operated boot n glove warmer's. This girl doesn't like to be cold. LoL

    A hot tent requires a hot stove. They are small and they heat tents to 70 plus Fahrenheit.

    I have used a canopy, zip tied tarps for 3 walls, put my tent inside that, added cots, flannel sheet, a warm bag and sherpa blanket over the bag. I used a propane heater. I was warm up to 10° with that setup. I like early and late season camping.
    Tea light candles need terra cotta pots for even heat radiation.

    Cool cool video the only thing different u could have laid a tarp dwn first on the ground and or snow this will give another layer between u and the snow if ur tarp is big enough u could double layer it then put the biggest tent over the tarp and peg it dwn and strap it dwn with the ropes this will provide stability in the wind this will allow u not to have to peg the smaller tent so that u can move ur smaller tent at will however that's my personal opinion tho just idea cool video think this is a good idea the double tent sending up prayers 4 u and bless great healthy peaceful safe journeys travels and happy camping stay warm

    Why didn’t you try tea candles in the small tent? Its common sense that the 15 tea candles aren’t going to heat a large shanty when it’s -11 degrees out. That was a wast of time.

    You definitely don't need 2 tents and a heat source other than your own body. But to each their own 👍

    Heating up some rocks in a campfire is actually a viable method of heating up a tent. You should try that next time, I’ve even seen someone cook off a heated rock in their car believe it or not.
