Picked up a older, but in fantastic shape, 14X16 Green Cabela's wall tent for $250 off CL. IT has 30'' walls with a peak height of about 8'5''. Ordering a frame angle kit and going to get this bad boy into the wilds!

Here is the tent that I picked up. It is 14x16 and we made a 7' porch area too. Pretty excited about this bad boy! We have about $600 into it thus far. Feels like a pretty decent deal on a solid tent.

So the directions with my stove said to burn it for an hour outdoors before any tent use to burn off any residue. While doing this initial burn, I noticed my stove pipe became discolored. The bottom stove pipe turned sort of matte gray instead of shiny chrome. Have any of you experienced this? I am a little worried maybe it got too hot, but I don't know.

Thanks

Perfectly normal.  Over time most of the pipe will do that.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Deer/elk camp is up. Bought a Davis Tent poly rain tarp this year since the old blue tarp wore out after last season. Planing on spending two weeks in the tent.

Well now my hunt of three weeks is over. I spent the day putting tents up to dry and burning out stove pipe.
We have a four hour drive home and a two hour take down for our camp.

I always bring the pipes for the three stoves home put together. Than clean them at home.
Once home I separate the five sections for each stove.
Start a campfire and lay a couple sections in.
Than I take a weed burner and stick in a section. Burning out the creosote.

You have to watch it. You can melt the pipe.
The pipe is clean when the outside turns a light mustard color.
I use a wood stick to remove the section from the fire and stand the section on end while rattling it on the stick.

Than I take a leaf blower and blow out any ash left in the stoves. Shop vac works too.

We did some high winds wall tent camping

Learned that stakes are super important, and you need lots and lots of them!

I used a rubber bungie on the stovepipe, just hooked the S hook over the top, then tensioned the bungie with some rope to a stake, that kept the stovepipe rock soilid..

Two other guys lost stovepipes in the wind

It was kinda miserable not knowing if the tent would survive the night, I slept in some clothing with a headlamp and had plans to sleep in the truck if the tent blew away
