Oh that's good stuff Rob, and especially a duel won with a Rover. He probably had to head to town for pipe tobacco.

No, really, I'm curious. I do a lot of playing in the snow and have wondered how it would go if I had a PH to sleep in...

Robb can answer for them. For us, it has been fine. Set the Espar at around 60 and sleep with a couple blankets or sleeping bag on top.

Totally fine. Suburban Propane set at 60, regular sleeping bag and it's good..

That said, it never got really cold.. 20s, but not below.

Well, it looks like fun. If you weren't cold and it's in the 20's, then I'd say it works pretty good! The coldest I ever was sleeping was on our backcountry ski patrol training one year, where we went up on Mt. Hood and built snow caves. Had a sub-zero sleeping bag and lots of warm clothes, but sleeping under several feet of snow ain't nothin but cold. And when you wake up, the ceiling has settled several feet and you're staring up at dripping ice.

Makes me think I'd like sleeping up high in something with windows.

Decided to take the 'long' way from my cabin home today.. Turned into a little longer than I anticipated with all the rain.. Several roads closed because they were washed into a river, and LOTS of mud. Oh well, got to test out my winch again!

That's some mud. Nice to see your winch line didn't snap again.
