Well the tents are stored away in their barrels and I am going through tent Boxes and cleaning things up.

I just bought my 3 rd 10x12 from a member here complete with a cylinder stove. Putting together a tent box for it now. Got all the frame marked with colored electrical tape for quick set up.

Ordered a 18 oz Tarp for its floor off Amazon . Saved $50.00.
Ordered 24. New stakes to match my other tents. Reliable Tent and Tipi.
Ordered frame bags from Wall Tent Shop.
Still have to get
Tarp to make fly. White
Ash shovel
Torch
Stove fan
Stove pad

Than some nice weather to really get it dialed in for upcoming hunting and fishing trips.

Real happy with finding this tent. Just like my number #2 tent except one door, no windows, two stove jacks.

I have a plan to ultilize the back wall stove jack as a window for ventilation.

I love messing with these tents.

Thats a great acquisition to your portfolio of wall tents! Team Rascals set our main tent up today to run R&D testing since we got a bout of winter and looks like it might be here for awhile? We shall see? The main testing this winter is the propane Mr. Heaters and longevity of the propane jugs? We ran our homemade hillbilly stove hard last winter and it is proven. Works great unti it rusts out then we engineer another.
Slap some bacon on a biscut and lets go, were burrnin daylight!

Don't know if its been said, but buy a bigger one then u think you'll need. You'll enjoy the extra room. I've got a 13x27 alakniak and a 10x 14 bow flex, love them both

I approached a little different.
I can set up 10 x 12 all day long by my self at 69.
But anything bigger I wouldn’t be able to lift by myself.

If you got help every time go bigger. But if you only need that much space once in awhile, I think you have more options with two 10 x 12 than one big tent. You can put them together for more room. Space them apart with a cook area between or adapt to smaller campsites. A lot of options.

 :twocents:

If you have a big tent and a small tent it is nice but a big tent can limit your options. Bigger footprint needs bigger camp/flat area. It also makes it not as efficient if you only have 2-3 people. We sold our 16x20 wall tent and went to a flexbow that is where we sleep and then a pop up canopy outside for cooking. Pretty versatile but only limitation is if more than 3 guys it wouldn't work. I am actually fine with that as most guys I hunt with snore like chainsaws so they can bring their own tent.  :chuckle:

Foam ear plugs to sleep are a must with partners who snore.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Oh ya, I don't leave home without them. I do have one hunting buddy, if whiskey is involved, makes it so ear plugs are pointless  :yike: :chuckle:

I gave my grandson the option to have his own tent or sleep in with me because not everyone was in camp till later in the hunt. I was crushed when he chose his own tent.
You snore grandpa. :bash:

Snoring is a real problem.  I try and hit the hay first....if I don’t it is like trying to get to sleep in a thunderstorm.     :chuckle: :chuckle:   Earplugs help but only a little bit.

Hahaha, I always seem to wake up with one earplug in and can't find the other, it never makes sense  :dunno: and by the end of a 6 day hunting season I always end up with 2 or 3 earplugs in the bottom of my sleeping bag.  :chuckle:

My hunting buddy Tyson snores like no other. He just laughs and says "All you have to do is fall asleep before me"..lol

Now with a few seasons under our belts. The main tent 12x18 as stated above i would not go any bigger. I can set it up by self but see issues with age if doing it by self and or a injury say 'back and it would be a no go. Anybody looking into wall tents should take to heart ❤  getting two smaller tents as stated and have way more options for set up. The weight of just cavas of the 12x18 is #80 lbs.

 I bought a 10*12 thinking of weight n setting up by myself.  Wish I would have gone 12*14. The amount of floor space  between the two is substantial. I will now probably just by a flexbow n have two tents. Decisions decisions lol
