    One of my friends brought this to my attention over on FB.

    Need a shelter? Look no further than your kitchen :lmao:

    It's something I'd have never thought of but in an emergency it makes total sense

    Great idea, provided all the wrap is removed when the camp is finished.

    That is very true, but then we're supposed to practice camping and leave no trace ;)

    @bopdude I've seen one of a kayak [https://bushcraftuk.com/community/index.php?threads/5-kg-kayak.151637/]



    In this he also has a wrap shelter, more domed. Still interesting idea, I'd imagine it'd be nice on a clear starry night - I've often thought of a clear tarp [I camp well away from people so won't scare anyone when getting changed!], can't find one though...


    edit///////////

    What an awesome stove too, very well thought out, I'd love to have one of them.. in ti! :)

    I made a similar shelter a few years back. Trying to find the photos.

    Worked really well. I was worried about the durability but it lasted in my woods for about 6 months.

    The stove making video was rather inspirational.

    Spend a few hours in that see-through plastic tent and you'd know how a packet of Bacon feels....:laugh:
