Dissappointed

Well after watching a Davis tent repair video, I am going to patch it myself.

Got 1 & 2 up for Maintenance, nine days alone while the wife travel to visit our daughter. And good weather too.

I have a 14x16 Davis, came with 20 ropes 10' long. Mine has 8 attachment points, 2 ropes per corner.

Well, its getting to be that time of year when I break out the tent and try and improve camp life over the previous year.
This years improvements are not original ideas, but I finally made them to help out.
Tarp clamps from PVC pipe, and a hanging shelf from some scrap plywood and paracord.

The length of the PVC clips was limited to the height I could cut on my bandsaw. The gap was trial and error, I have some that are SNUG and a few that are going to hold.
The shelf is 4' long, and 16" deep with a cedar rip left over from my fence project. nailed and glued to the plywood.
I plan on making a few of these to have one for each hunter, and at least one in the kitchen too!!

I know this has been awhile but to anyone who has a bloody nose that won't stop take a roll of tissue paper, toilet paper, whatever you've got and roll it up like a cigar, wet it slightly and put it under your top lip, it'll stop the worst of them.  It's just using that pressure point.  Needs to be a pretty good size though.  Seen it work on a diabetic drunk that was bleeding like a stuck hog.   

Also we keep a pan of water on the stove for moisture in the tent.  My daughter gets bloody noses from the dry air sleeping in the wall tent with the wood stove blazing.

I am considering doing the same this year but also am doubting that we will be able to have a fire so might not work quite as well. No fun sleeping with tp stuffed up your nose.  :o
No and when she gets them they are bad, big blood clots.  She has the same issue at our cabin in the winter, the air is so cold and dry outside and then dry wood heat in the cabin.  One step that we take is she puts Aquafor on a Q tip and coats the inside of her nostrils with that.  That seems to help as well.

For people that use wood stoves. Dampener or not. We have one but I'm thinking of taking it out. If you close it things in tent get smokey also bothers my breathing. I have a partner that likes to close it at night. Says it keeps the heat in.

Damping the stove correctly will not result in smoke in the tent.

You're basically trying to slow the airflow through the fuel in the stove with a combination of the stove-pipe damper and the air intake holes so that the fuel still burns, but doesn't burn as hot and will last longer.

Get a good solid bed of hot coals, then FILL the stove to it's maximum capacity with large pieces of dry wood.  Let it get ripping for a few minutes, then damp it down (not closed!) and leave enough of a slit in air intake to supply just enough air for an efficient burn. My outfitter sized Cylinder stove only needs a toothpick sized slit to provide enough O2 for long-term combustion.   This will burn a long time with minimal soot build-up.  If you damp it down to the point where it's just a lukewarm smudgepot (especially with wood that sucks), you're going to get a ton of soot buildup in the pipe like a clogged artery and your stove will burn like crap until you kill the stove and clean out the pipe.

There was some chatter about Diesel heaters in tents on another thread. Thought it would be a good topic here.

I watched some videos on Diesel heaters and I find them intriguing but not ready to give up my wood stove to run one. I can see they would be great if you were hunting in an area with no wood supply.

My concern was odor and mess. I had also seen used motor oil drip systems and was concerned about odor and mess.

Curious if anyone has had luck with either.

At this point I don’t see myself every going away from my pellet stove.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

We used a Nu-Way Diesel heater for many years, no odor. It was a drip system with a 1/2-gallon tank on the side. It was good for 8+ hours on one fill-up. The only issue way soot in the stack when be packed up camp.

Do they attract moisture like Propane does?
