The weather has been so mild here in MT I was able to make a trip 3 miles in a few weekends back around 5k feet. Here are a few pics.

5k feet of what?

That would be above sea level.
:yeah: Elevation, altitude, high, away from people that don't know where 5k is, next to c-post  ;)

danderson... not trying to rain on your parade but don't let a forest service guy catch you camping that close to the water.  We have been asked to move before.  At 11 miles in, you have less us of a chance but they do find you on occasion.

This is my DIY homemade tipi tent with a kifaru stove. We spent 32 nights in this tent last year from bear in WA, to New Mexico elk, and even a snow covered Wenaha rifle elk. It was ripped open in New Mexico by a bear patched back up and kept hunting strong. Love this tipi and the stove. Total weight with stove is just under 11 lbs. Sleeps four with gear no problem. Waterproof through the worst weather you could dream of.

The condensation is by far the biggest downfall of the material!  Most mornings we don't start a fire and get moving, just gotta avoid touching the side walls cause they are damp. I made the tent with two door types, silnylon (main door) and a mosquito net  (screen door). If no extreme weather, we sleep with the net door only and that solves any condensation. A liner would be ideal but we live with it. Only time the condensation becomes a problem is when wind blown snow drops from the tree's and makes a rain forset effect in your tipi at 2 A.M. Then it can really suck. The only way to fix that is start a fire and keep it going. Making another one this spring and I'm thinking I will put a liner in that one. As a whole though the positives outway the negatives by a landslide. This tipi and stove were a backcountry dream this year!
