You know I can't imagine using a stove in my Stephensons tent unless it
is fairly chilly outside (even if it is really OK to use an Esbit stove
in there). I was taking measurements and trying to get the hang of those
strange tension adjusting buckles (still not got the hang of it, but I'll
get it in time I trust) by the front door and while inside I realized it
was considerably warmer than outside. I didn't take a thermometer inside
with me, but clearly the inner wall does a great job of keeping heat in
(I didn't really have the windows open during much of this time). Seems
to me a stove would really raise the inside temperature quite a bit. Now,
on a chilly wintry day that might be grand and just what the body needs;
but any other time it could easily be too much.
