    it was used in the summer and early winter, down to about -5°, I can't recall any moans and he knew to ventilate.

    Still looking for a new tent! (Snugpak Stratosphere?)

    I got a Stratosphere for my son, as has been said above, its basically a large bivi, he's stayed dry and hasn't complained. It all depends on what your needs are, a tent or a bivi. I had both the Phoenix Mountaineering Phreeranger and Phreerunner, the former has been sold on and was an ace...

    Yew Berries?

    Yes, but you didn't mention the toxicity, which is why you spat the seed out. Others folks reading it may not realise the consequences.
