    Billy Bass had the biggest stove so like moths to a flame everyone crept in.






    I really liked this knife. The curly Birch felt comfortable. Might get one though have so many knives.



    Ti stove pipe.





    Hot tenting runs on water, wood and power.

    Water.

    Melting snow for water using white gas. Faster than the wood stove. Did this once a day.



    Wood.



    Power.

    My uncle needs a better rated bag.



    Mine was good enough.



    Stove taking the edge off.





    Clear and cold.



    I decided the little stove wasn't enough for this larger shelter. I made it for a 2 and 4 man shelter this is a 6-man. So time for a heart transplant. One of the pros to packing in with a pulk sled.



    A late arrival.



    Some of my critical kit I keep ready to go.

    The new stove worked wonderful. Homemade lentil soup. Made from scratch in camp.



    It's a big stove. The kettle holds more than 35 oz.





    More snow.



    Bacon and eggs in the AM.





    Overcast raw day.



    Hurt my heal so this was the first time during the outing I was any real distance from camp. I had big plans on friction fire and chaga hunting but was just too crippled. Felt god enough this day to do this.







    Snow shoes.

    Fire.



    Back at camp in Ken's 8-man. I like this method of stacking wood behind the stove to dry.





    Good times in the tent.



    My 6-man large stove still had coals from the AM. Still had some wood as well.





    It ignited on just the old coals. The Kifaru Large stove, Riley spark box, adjustable angle pipe with Kifaru collar and two spark screens made for a monster heater in the 6-man.



    Packed up in record time as was being stalked by a nasty winter storm. It caught us and the 200 mile drive back took 6 hours of nail biting driving fun.





    Here is a video of the adventure for those with way too much time on their hands. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for posting this and the effort to document this event every year with the video. Great stuff.

    This looks like a great way to break the cabin fever in the middle of winter!! I am recently stationed at Dover AFB, DE now and was wondering if there were plans for a 2018 ECR??

    Clint, The ECR has been going on for many years so I'm sure its a go for 2018. Its usually the weekend before Valentines Day
