I camp solo Almost exclusively. 

I currently use a Hilleberg Solo as it is bombproof and easy to setup. 

The thought of processing enough 6 inch pieces of wood for a long winter night never really appealed to me.

But sitting home during this blizzard has me thinking.

what would be your dream solo Stove/tent combination for backpacking?

I feel pretty happy with my current solo hot tent option, which is an Exped Sirius Extreme that I can pitch floorless and I have sewed in a stove jack.  With that, I can use my smaller DIY stove inside,  which will handle 8-10" splits or smallish rounds.  I can also use my Sheperd Stove in it, but with a 3" pipe.  The forthcoming Medium Shepherd Stove would be perfect in a solo up to a 4 man. 

Are you able to pitch your Hilleberg floorless?

Thank you for the reply. I can set my Soulo up floorless, I never tried it.

What does your Exped Sirius Extreme and stove weigh together? And for a night and a mornings worth of burn how long does it take to gather and process the wood in a normal setting (no rain or snow coming down)?

Don't have the exact weights off the top of my head....but I think the two together would be less than 5 lbs.  I'm not back from the SHOT Show yet, so I'll have to weigh them when (if) I get back to Virginia.  Procuring and processing enough wood for a night and a morning can be accomplished in about an hour or so, as long as there is plenty of standing dead and dry deadfall lying about.
