    Default Building an indoor tent.

    I built it two days ago at the camp to protect cold air while sleeping.
    Blocking air movement is simple technique of emergency shelter construction.

    Have you considered the possibility of Carbon Monoxide build-up?
    It looks a bit dangerous to me.

    I just want to make sure you wake up from a long sleep!

    Ok, upon closer inspection I think I see the side(s) are open.

    Looks like an indoor version of a winter indoor super shelter as done by Mors Kochanski and Dave Canterbury, it works as far as I have seen, you can even line the inside with one or two mylar blankets to reflect your body or fire heat back to you and raise the inside temperature even more, when you have this et up inside you don't even have to deal with the wind and just your body heat should build up the temperature fast, just make sure you don't wake up sweaty in the morning because then you will be cold. Setting up a tent indoors is not a bad idea a all when you want to decrease the space you need to heat to stay comfortable, unconventional but it WILL work, a few tea candles can heat up a tent pretty fast as well, a trick I learned in the military.

    Hey 778,

    Umm, did you see the yellow snow uphill of the tent about six inches? I would not be sleeping with my head that close to the toilet! lol
    Forget about it
