  Winter hikers and mountaineers have been cooking and melting snow inside 
their tents for decades. I wonder what they are doing thatI've used my esbit 
inside the vestibule dozens of times, but it sits on the ground ( or mud, or 
snow ), on an aluminum plate.
 What are those mountaineering/winter folks doing to be safe?
