comment How much heat can a candle lantern provide while winter camping?
@OlinLathrop I was picking up on the original question, asking about show caves. Indeed they can be warmed quite a bit from a single candle or even just radiated body heat.

Ahh, but Snow is indeed a much better insulator as the OP wondered in the question. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-value_(insulation) notes that it is R-1 which would make the numbers quite a bit different.

For the cost of a couple of garden pots, you can "build" one yourself to try: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pot-in-pot_refrigerator

comment Performance of fur garments?
Also be aware that what you might buy today as a fur garment is also not made the same, at the very least, the cut is likely different than in previous times.

comment Features to look for when buying a stove (for car camping)
Propane does not work in winter/cold weather, but for three-season you would be fine.
