3 days after that picture was taken I was chained up and wondering if we would get to camp for the opener.  Weather changes quick at 8,500’ in November.

Wow!

For years I have been cutting back and minimizing as much as possible, without cutting what comfort there is.
That tent, it is one tent correct? Is humongous!
It looks like close to a cord of wood split and stacked as well. How long and how many people does that beast take to setup!
Honestly, I have seen many large camps, but that thing is by far the biggest I have seen.
When I first saw this, I was in my garage, I looked at my truck with a 5.5” bed, with Bakflip tonneau cover, that all my deer camp gear can fit under.
How in the world do you pack that puppy and all the stuff to fill it?
Do you have any pics of the inside?

Seriously impressive tent!

Long lost cousin hooked us up as well!! Set it in the tent and works awesome! Ran one Buddy heater 24/7 on low 4,000 BTU setting and went strong 80hrs to burn 4.5 gallons of propane.

Might be in the market for some one to repair one of my Canvas Wall tents. Its a Tent Shop Tent I bought from a member here last year. Seems like someone on here was saying they repaired tents.

Any suggestions???

John at BRAVO does tent repairs and is a site sponsor.

It was noted earlier in this thread Yakima Tent and Awning does as well.

It might already be in here lots of pages to read.
A buddy has a wall tent and had his stove pipe out the top. But kept getting soot running down the pipe into the tent. So he switched it to the side of the tent. Doesn’t seem very efficient. To many bends? Doesn’t burn as good. Still drips but at least it is out of the tent. Ideas? Wood type?

Use dry wood. Possibly damping down to low which causes to not burn hot which creates creosote.  There are thermometers to put on stove which will show the burn temperature to maintain so creosote is not formed. Hope that helps!

Never had that problem ,but have had creosote build up over a week. One thing I did is ditch the damper. I found I could control burn and heat better with air adjustment. Burn stove hot hour or so before bed time. Load up at bedtime and reduce air to control temp. Nighttime nature call open draft on way out door. Back in stoke stove, cut air back to bed.
Once you figure out where the air needs to be it’s easy.

We fought out the side venting in our cook shack for years. Than put in a roof jack and never looked back.

We never burn paper or cedar in the tent stoves because those items let a lot of sparks or incomplete burned embers that could get on the tent.

We use dural flame log fire starters and a Plummer’s torch  to start fires.
We also run a 90 elbow on the top.

Slipping the whole stack off every five days and taping out takes just a few minutes but helps a lot.
