So I have this old car camping set that has both a big pot (3-4 qt?) and a big kettle. I believe both are aluminum, not UL but not all that heavy either. I use them on the good ol' Coleman car camping single burner stove I have when base camping. I could bring one of them?
another option is one of these:
it's 16oz, but it is cheap. Either may mean we only need to bring one pot for all of us(?)
I have a friend with a Summit water bucket, ~4L iirc, I can probably borrow. He's one of the friends I asked if interested in joining us.
Q: about tents in winter, would taking just the fly and footprint work? I can imagine not needing the bug tent?

Lupus is half lab half husky and LOVES the snow. We went walking around Boston after one of the big snow storms two years ago, it was Sunday morning, 16F no cars, we just plowed through the un-plowed streets for like 2 hours, I had to go back in after 20minutes to change into warmer more snow proof clothing. He had the biggest grin the whole time and when I'd had enough he stayed in the backyard a while longer while I shoveled around the house. He also eats snow, it's rather adorable...
My concern for him is sleeping, which is why I got him the fleece. He generally likes to sleep outside the tent (or wander around while I fall asleep and can't let him back in), and in theory when I have the gear to hammock down to -15F he'll sleep on his own (though I am contemplating a CF doggy tarp for him) so I think this will act as a good "sleeping bag" for him.
