I then dug a little cold air trench in the vestibule space between the tent’s inner and outer door. This allows space for cold air to sink below the platform on which you are sleeping. Every little bit counts. It also gives you a very handy place to sit, half in the tent, with your booted feet in the trench, making it easier to take off and put on your Baffin boots, in addition it helps to prevent you carting ice into the tiny living area.
