I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

@Mia I guess so, but I would check with authorities to be sure. That'd be quite a lot of work for a more permanent camp as with my lavvu-suggestion, though.

Are you planning to live on a campsite, or in the wild? The Swedish allemansrätten means you can camp anywhere, but you cannot stay indefinately. I think you need to ask permission to stay more than 48 hours, and I doubt the town will give permission for your use case. But if you're on a campsite, it's of course permitted. Then you could also wash your clothes there. And, -20°C is nothing indeed! My colleague tried this (just for fun) for maybe three nights here in Kiruna with temperatures down to -40°C. Oh, and he decided not to bring his tent to his present work in Antarctica.
