sure, as long as you've got a horse or a quad wheeler to lug the stuff around. I've got a 3.5 lb shelter/sleep system, which can all be worn as ponchos, that handles down to 20F without a fire, and near arctic temps with a fire. It can handle 0F if the sun is bright, no fire required. Another 1.5 lbs of clothing is all that's required, beyond a set of cammies, hat, boxers, t shirt and sock liners. None of the gear is affected by its getting wet, and it's all useful in summer time, too. There's a hammock, ponchos, bug net bags, also. It's been calculated and tested to be the lightest, most compact and versatile kit possible.

you dont want your fire inside of your shelter, guys, cause the smoke leads to emphazema, lung cancer, and fire hazards, Instead, heat some big stones and put them under your hammock or raised wooden bed. and basically, if it's long term shtf, gtfo of cold country. You've got plenty of other concerns without having to also deal with snow, ice, falling thru same, leaving tracks in same, sending up smoke signals for enemies to find you, food very hard to find, etc.

you can move 100 lbs of stuff on a bicycle and a bike trailer. 20 lbs of that can be an inflatable boat. the boat will float you, your BoB and your bike down the rivers at night, 20 miles per night, in near perfect safety, with no concerns about water or fish. being hard to get. A drum full of food will be easily towed behind you on a rope, too. The entire 3200 miles of the US has been crossed in 8 days on a bicycle. Given a GEL seat, you can swiftly become able to pedal 100 miles per night, on backroads. Most places in the lower 48 states, moving due south 700 miles gets you out of the snow and ice bs.
