Fired up my new Q pellet stove I got at the sportsman show and cured the paint. Hoping it keeps the tent warm this year. Taking the trusted cylinder stove just in case.

Got any pics of it?

Real curious how this works out...I almost pulled the trigger on this at the show
I will be posting results for sure.

We normally hunt late season where high temp in camp is 30, lows are in the single digits some years.

This year Iím going to montana for September elk hunting. Gonna take it for that as well. Iím sure it will be fine for that. It will be nice to not have to get wood.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Yeah that looks like it would take up less space too.

Last year made three trips to Oregon for a total of 15 days in the wall tent.  It just doesnt get any better.  Heck if my back yard was bigger I could see putting up the wall tent and spending a few nights a month sleeping in it  :chuckle: No TV, no computer, no screaming kids, no electricity.   :camp:

I hunt late season in Idaho about 6500 ft and it gets cold there , that's why I contemplated it. My cousin brought a diesel heater last year and it burned us out of the tent. I'm just looking at other options when he can't bring his along.

I noticed last season that a couple threads were coming loose on my door zipper of #2 tent.
Planning to set it up in couple weeks and work on that issue.

I have been thinking of cutting the treads and than putting a drop of super glue on the end.

Any ideas?

Ok
Got # 2 up today after a extensive honey do list. Sitting in it now in the back yard as I post this. Wishing we were in the mountains.

So got this little issue on one door zipper. Last year I had to wiz like a race horse in the wee hours and couldnít get the zipper un stuck. We had the other door blocked with a table.
Vowed I would fix that problem before next camp.
So before I tackle this in am. Looking for any suggestions.

Hereís the photo.

I'd do fabric scissors, really fine ones, and trim that back. I have a pair I use for carpet. Really fine work.  Maybe hand stitch it back from the zipper.

Not a wall tent, but got my Seek Outside 8 man up, and it is huge.  Burned in the XL stove, last winter. Can't wait for cooler weather.

I suggest no cut back and just lay flat all frays and super glue to the side of tent  :twocents:

Well did a little of both. But on most layer flat and glued with Bishs Tear Mender.
Little more forgiving than the super glue.

All tackled the  mud drips from last year.
Had time to dry it out when I got home last year but no time to clean.

But got to it today.

Before and after.
