Tent heaters


Walleye_GFA

Question

Have not camped much into colder weather, anyone ahve any experience with keeping tents warm at night, or at least not dangerously cold ???

I am thinking about putting a bar heater or space heater on a couple milk crates and a board...

We have a big 20' x 10' with the vents at teh top taht you can close, but their is still a ton of ventalation with them closed...

Any ideas would be great... Im not going to go gently into winter this year, it will drag me kicking and screaming all the way !!!!

Mr.Heater Buddy. Be carefull with any heater in a tent for a long time. Keep vents and doors open a crack. Myself I would get a marmer bag or 2 if needed.

I sleep better knowing there isn't a heater running.
A cot to get you off the ground and a closed cell pad or self inflater for insulation between you and the cot. Theres bags that will keep you warm in temps well below zero. Use a buddy heater to warm the tent in the morning, makes it easier to get out of bed.

Depends on what your tent is made of....20' X 10'....is it a canvas wall tent?

ANY heater in a synthetic tent is dangerous, at best. CO poisoning or a flaming tent can be the result. A catalytic heater will help with the CO, but the flaming tent is still a possibility. Even if you get out, you'll be covered with melted plastic and those burns are very unpleasant.

The best suggestion I have seen here is to just use the proper sleeping equipment and perhaps use a buddy-type heater in the morning after you wake up to take the edge off.

I've slept comfortably in a tent in sub-zero weather...not what a person necessarily aims for, but it is very possible.

I use a catalytic heater in a two man tent when I'm winter camping. It's just me in there so I set it up with the least chance of melt down. I'll pre-heat the tent before I turn in for the night, and then turn it on again an hour or so before I get up. It helps to rid the tent of moisture that has accumulated during the night. You can also take your time getting out of the sleeping bag and getting dressed. The best way to keep warm while sleeping is a quality sleeping bag and a good thick foam pad to seperate you from the frozen tundra.

I vote for the Buddy also. Its advertised as being safe for indoor use because it doesn't emit any carbon monoxide.

It may not give off gas but there's alot of condensation. I recall as a kid that someone in our group used a coleman heater. I looked like a single-burner stove with a silver domed top.

      Now many businessmen open their companies in the USA, as this makes it easy to apply for an American accelerator and communicate with any investor. The specialists of https://www.fintecharbor.com/company-registration-in-the-usa/ will help you register a company in America and you will be able to feel comfortable in your business.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?
