I looked at those,but they were $100.00 plus a pop in my area.
I went to k mart and got battery fan. Use it for moving heat or cool air in summer.

 Just thought I would add an update on our maiden outing with our new Davis 14x16 setup. We spent 4 days in snow and some wind in the Little Belt Mtns and it was outstanding! Have a stove that we picked up from the boys in-law and refurbished it a bit. After figuring how to set it at night, woke up a bit cold 1st night  :chuckle:, it held a fire and heat all nite. Used a deep cycle battery-inverter with a 4 ft LED shoplight and it worked great. ran it about 4-5 hrs a day and it lasted 4 days on 1 battery.

 Took us about 2 1/2 hrs to tear down and move east to deer hunt and maybe 2 hrs to set it back up. We got an extra set of angles for a kitchen awning and used a seperate tarp for that we paid 45 bucks for. Worked great. All in all cant say enough good about Davis tents and our set up. Can't wait for the next trip already :)

Here is a photo of our Bravo tent and snow fly. Main tent is 15x15 with a 15x9 cooking/mud room area. The snow fly covers the entire 15x24 setup. We use motorcycle ratchet straps to secure the tent. They really tighten it down and don't come loose.

I have been playing around with pressed logs in my dog stoves.

Seems to me that the round logs burn hotter and longer than the square ones.

One LED shop light uses 36 watts = Four 60 watt equilvalent LED bulbs = two LED Bulbs for the tent, one for cookshack and one for the park area.

My Reliable TP and Tent, Wall tent came with 12 inch heavy stakes with almost full curL on top. They work well.

My 2nd tent , came with after market 16 inch stakes out of rebar. Bought on line.

I have seen guys use four metal fence poles and string a line around them. Than take all the eve lines to the rope.

We used 2' sections of rebar driven at an angle so logs (6-8') could be laid down between the stakes and lower tent ground section. This to help prevent the tent from being lifted by the wind (it blew pretty hard on a regular basis where we were).

I took 5 foot barbed wire fence posts and cut them up 18" long and drilled a hole in the top.  Pound them in at an angle and then hook the motorcycle hook through the hole and to the tent D ring.  Rock solid.

I use forming nails, they don't bend. Just make sure you bring a sledge hammer to drive them in  :tup:
