Gear mentioned/seen in video:
The large, warm, machine washable down alternative puffy blanket from Sorison. Forgot to mention makes a great hammock top quilt. If you use the following link Sorison will give 10% of the profits to the school we will be working with in Northern Thailand, plus an additional 10% from their net profits at the end of the year. Here is the super long link https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PDT9D21/?maas=maas_adg_0F913EF95988EBF533A06726B96A1FD5_afap_abs&ref_=aa_maas&ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl&ie=UTF8&tag=playingwit061-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07PDT9D21&linkId=35a7ad7710d2247c97bff83839707900

🟢WATER JUG: Don’t purchase the one we use. They are poorly made.
🟢$10 SHEET METAL: To prevent snow from coming in contact with fire. This is the first time we tried it as an experiment instead of using rocks. Worked well. Does bend a bit from the heat and really dirty and sharp edges for transport. Would work best if you own a truck. https://www.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL-24-in-x-3-ft-Galvanized-Steel-Sheet-Metal/3234805
🟢COMPACT SHOVEL- The one we own is for avalanches and costs over $100. I think this budget shovel at $20 would work just as well for most folks https://amzn.to/3smKMHY

🟢Mummy Bags. We are big fans of 20 degree bags. Not to light, not too heavy. A great way to purchase high end sleeping bags is to get Stoic or Backcountry branded sleeping bags from backcountry.com. Basically they are knock offs of the higher end brands, but to us they seem to be just as good at half the price.
