THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!
I just watched a report of the tent camp and saw something very dangerous that could kill somebody.
If you are using a Propane Catalytic Heater or Propane Lantern, make sure you know what you are doing.
Real tents have a vent in the top and and what is something like and umbrella over it for a reason.
So you don't die.
Those devices are only safe with a vented tent. You will also notice even in a camper you have to crack the vent if you use those propane devices.
I noticed one person interviewed who showed a heater and was inside a homemade tent with no vent. If your going to camp out like that, at least have
basic knowledge. One camper already died from the same thing in Salt Lake City, Utah.
I lost a friend to this same thing. He was hunting and did not have his ropes taut enough. It rained all night and the weight of the water collapsed
the vent cover while he was using the same kind of heater. He was found dead the next morning. You go to sleep and don't wake up. You won't even know
what's happening to you.
Also take the time to learn how to use things like your sleeping bags. The insulation only works if you remove your clothing and you can freeze faster
if crawl in with everything on.
Winter camping is not a walk in the park and hypothermia can kill you also. Please don't be dumb and think you can buy some junk at a store and know
how to use it safely. You start having uncontrollable shivers, get the hell to a hospital fast.
Be safe if you have to do this. Safe and intelligent.
