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:

Those are real nice.

I am a sucker for lights. My wife says when I am gone she will have to have sale of just lights. I love lights :tup:

What kind of battery do those take?  I went and bought three more packs of the lux pro tonight while they are still on sale.  Now I have 10 lights.  I am thinking of getting one of their 1000 lumen lanterns too.  If I had one or two of the lanterns I could leave all the propane lanters at home.  I also like lights.......I love the idea of not worrying about the glass globes of the lanterns......I have broken my fair share.

Everything you bring with you for the tent.
A lot of my gear needs to be taken from either my camper or my backpacking tote. Iíd hate to forget my coffee pot, or Johnny Pee.

Thanks, thatís 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 Iím 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.

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..
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Yep metal
I crowd the stove to the back edge so when you open the door any hot stuff falls on the metal.
