Folding rig

New here. Lately the climates been -25 to 5 C. Watched a origami engineering YT video which made me think about my local bicycle touring setup. My 50 year old 2.0 lb 37 inch umbrella led me to a 2.2 lb $20 USD camo popup dome tent with floor for two and a 2.0 lb $30 folding butterfly camp chair. Been thinking about a diy hot tent with a 2.5 lb folding wood stove. Bought a couple of cute little $20 folding cook stoves, butane/propane and woodgas. I'm hoping to enjoy the coming three seasons with my folding bike and trailer rig around my watery wooded hilly farming countryside mostly on the rail trail systems. Best wishes.

Had great fun warming my cold, -22C, hands with a 15 minute hand full of twigs in my wood gas, gasification cook stove. Wish I still had my Dual Fuel cook stove which I used 0.1 US gallons or 24 US cents of unleaded gasoline annually to cook/bake several meals. Looking forward to breaking in my Stanley & Ozark Trail folding mess kits.

not much going on locally.
most businesses still closed after the lunar new year holiday.
nearby we have a supermarket, a few convenience stores and a chicken burger joint.
chicken place is take-out or delivery only. no customers inside allowed to eat.
local vegetable market is open, but with fewer sellers than before.
traffic is very light, still no public transportation.
our province is not heavily affected, only about 150 cases with 4 deaths.
there are 6 cases in our city, one dead.
our apartment complex is on lockdown.
only one gate open, only one person per household allowed out at a time,
and then only every other day.
the park next door is quiet. too quiet.
no dancing grannies in over two weeks.
