I've been following the thread on keeping warm. Warm is a relative word in

Concerning the types of fuel to use, obviously "White gas" is the fuel of
What I would like to know is how cold is too cold for propane. I have seen a
youth member of our unit use a propane stove at temps in the minus teens.
That's a little chilly. If we are talking Butane that's another matter.
Some of us enjoy Winter Camping, no bugs, few people. Every year the Venture
Crew has a multiday (longer than a weekend) campout scheduled. For those of
us who fortunate enough to get snow, the warmest place to sleep is in a Snow
I will agree that wearing a hat to bed is probably the best way to keep warm,
especially if you are hair challenged like me. My preference for material for
any of the clothing is fleece.
Just my .02 worth.
