When setting up, we chainsaw disc (1/2"thick) for leveling cots and tables. The bigger the disc... the less likely to slip off.
Pavement, crowds and inaccurate rifles...
Thanks anyway.

We usually have 3 inch squares with us branded with the camp logo. To level tables and cots.

Ghost,

T

Well back In the start late 80s. We didn't have a name . We would put out a bunch of Jack O Lanterns so people got calling us Punkin Camp. That didn't really stick.
Some other camps back than around our hunting area had names couple even had signs.
There was John Deere Camp up Poorman Crk, Sheep Creek Camp and Owl Camp up Little Bridge Creek.

We decided we needed a name. Ummmmm
I use to bring hunting magazines to read to camp. One day I am reading this article about bears titled something like " Black Ghost of the Forests"
Than I saw another one about elk that was Ghosts of the Timber.

Well it struck me that all the animals we hunted were at times like ghosts.
So I said instead of deer or elk camp , grouse or bear, let's call it Ghost Camp.

Than we stared looking for a crest,or logo, or avatar. I asked my wife to draw us a ghost some were kind of scary looking. But in the end the ghost you see today drawn by my wife became our sign.

Than came,shirts,hats,chits,flags and business size cards. Every were we travel to hunt we leave chits or cards In Restaurants with our generous tips. Letting restaurants know that hunters are part of their customer base.

At the Wood Shed in Eagle Rock and in Twisp there are waitresses that collect the chits or cards we leave. With the names of the guys who were there,the year and animal hunted.
We have been told that waitresses have even argued over us when we come in because they wanted us seated in their section.

Thanks, I haven't looked around much. The sound of a fan going at night helps me sleep. Dang tinnitus. Helps to drown out some of the snoring in camp too.

I use and Ecofan in my tent.  It sits on top of the stove in the back corner and works off of the heat of the stove.  As the stove heats up the blades start turning, no power or batteries, as the stove cools down the fan spins slower.  Doesn't make any noise and needs no power to operate. They have a bunch of different versions, gas, wood or pellet stove in different blades configurations for different volumes of air movement.

I love mine and would highly recommend one to anyone with a wall tent.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Yes I considered one of those. But decide to try to kill two birds. Cooling fan for hot summer nights and move heat around fan on those cold winter trips.
