Had some serious rain last week or so. Lots of water came down the stove pipe. Came up with this idea when not using the woodstove.  Don't want t use a China cap as it deflects sparks embers down onto tent.

@ghosthunter  where do you get your peppermint oil? Did some R&D and found the peppermint extract works but evaporated fast due to the alcohol.  Maybe I should mix extract with cooking oil? :dunno:

Easiest to buy it on amazon.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I bought at the food co op . Just because I am the kind of guy that likes to walk in ,touch something and pay cash.
If I had too, I would buy on line. But I donít.
Everything I read said pure peppermint . No extract. But never tried it.

Seen folks insulating there Yurts with various different stuff. Bubble Foam to ridged foam.  Anybody doing this with there wall tents? I would think it would not let tent breath if you rolled out bubble wrap over the roof.  :dunno:

I was thinking about slipping some 1/2"or 1" rigid foam insulation in between the frame posts and the canvas material.  First thought was at the ceiling but then I was concerned the snow wouldn't melt and come off.  Next thought was around the perimeter walls.  My buddy was thinking bubble wrap sheets on the inside of the framing.   :dunno:  If I try it this year I will definitely post up a report.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Rite Aid has it in the essential oils area, most drug stores probably do.👍

Nowadays just dig a hole.  Leave shovel next to it.  Cover the damage as you go.  Years back we got a little more fancy, but we dont spend enough time around camp to do that these days.

Well our deer camp is 12 to 15 . With some ladies too. So we spend a little time making it comfortable.
Last few years itís been a Chair with a seat on it over a hole,with a double bull blind over that.
Motion sensing interior light. And solar lights marking the trail.
Use a red blinker on top to indicate in use.

Setting up our tent to do winter R&D would I ever even thought I'd still have it up now for possible quarantine chamber. Getting escentuals into the Canvas Hospital and hope not to have to use it for the Virus.
