A roaring fire inside your tent

A roaring fire inside your tent

Following from my first try with the Frontier Stove, and fitting it to my tent I thought I’d do a post on what it’s like using inside a tent (this time round we just tried it out with the tent pitched in the garden – I will do some more posts about using it for a weekend/ week etc).

Well….. it’s easier. As per my last post there is still a little smoke coming back into the tent unless the door is mostly closed (as per my first post) but there seems to be less of it and it’s less “blustery” (sorry, thesaurus not to hand), which is probably due to the closed tent equalising pressure on one door of the stove, or something.

It is also incredibly warm in the tent once it’s going (this was an overcast British April afternoon and the inside of the tent was uncomfortably warm)!

I was worried that the chimney wouldn’t be tall enough, but once in place (as can be seen) it was as high as the top of the tent, so no need for extra flue sections.

Not much else to say really, a wonderful addition to the tent which should extend the Hopper family camping season into the late autumn!
