Thanks, that’s a great start.

Has anyone tried one of those sun screens you put in a car window to deflect the heat on the tent wall? I typically use a piece of corigated roofing tin, but I’m trying to lighten and uncluttered what I take.

I guess you are talking behind the wood stove?
I use to worry about it but now that I  have logged 100 plus days in the tent. I don't put any thing behind the store.

Some folks have used welding blankets and survival blankets.

Under the stove I use a oil drip tray like you use in your garage. I record every where the tent is set up each year on the drip tray. I also marked where the tray goes on the floor to cut down on set up time.

I’m thinking to deflect the back into the tent. Right now we use a street sign in the back and one under the stove.

I would leave that at home and get a wood stove fan.

My two tents are 10x12s and my stove heat them real well.

Our cook shack is 10x 20 and the Three dog keeps it 60.

These lux pro lights are pretty amazing.  They are small and compact, they put out a ton of light and they hang with magnets to the tent frame.  I will be purchasing 6 more for camp life.   :tup: :tup:

I picked up a pair of the lights over the weekend.
They are a lot smaller then I expected, and not as bright as I expected.
But, then I realized, inside a tent at night, they would be perfect. The last thing I want is a gazillion lumin light at night in my tent, LOL

Help my stupid out here.. what is the purpose of setting them in there, to keep off the floor? Aren't they usually plastic, no concern there?
They are made of metal, not plastic..

Thanks. I've only seen plastic ones.

4 of them in my 15x18 was very bright.  I also bought two of the 1000 lumen lux pro lanterns....now those are stupid bright!!!!!   :yike: :yike:  I love how small and compact the triangle lights are for packing.  I also love how they stow to protect the lenses.  I own 10 of them now for my tent / camp.

I also picked up some fantastic small form factor flashlights from Coast that put out 345 lumens and only 3 inches long, running two AAs.

Since the wall tent tips and tricks thread is 34 pages long, it would very much seem that the "trick" is to NOT have one  :yike:

Me too normally but we are headed to montana next weekend and taking the wall tent. Looking forward to getting a little extra use this year.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Lots of great ideas and advice for the guy just coming along into wall tents.
Most this stuff we had to learn the hard way.
I don’t think wall tents are that hard andI am 68this year. But there was a learning curve.

And good info like “ When your stove pipe came loose in the wind, where did it separate?”
Well everyone who had that happen said”at the stove”

Good I tell right there. Secure the pipe to the stove with screws or wire.
Priceless info for the beginner. :tup:

 :yeah:

I don’t use a wall tent, I use a Cabelas Wind River 9’ x 12’ dome tent. But most of these tips and tricks can be used by any one who likes to tent.

I was poking some fun

There really is nothing like wall tent camping in later seasons :tup:

Has anyone used straw for a floor inside the tent? Obviously with carpet by the cot and something under the stove.

No, it would make a mess inside my tent  :dunno:

Sorry, could not refuse.  :chuckle:

Would it attract or hide mice?
