Drying out our boots

November Camping

9
I haven’t written much about the Frontier Stove for months now, or my army bell tent, and that’s because there hasn’t been much to write about. That said I went away camping with friends in the Lake District the weekend before last and got to experience the wonder of a heated tent! [...]
Broken rubber band

I got it a bit wrong….

I was camping in the Lakes last weekend (post to follow soon) and if you thought it a good idea to follow my guide on adding guys to the Frontier Stove Flue, don’t. One of the rubber lumps I used to insulate the guy line from the wire that is connected to the flue broke. (more…)

The Frontier Stove – Adding Guys to the Flue

  UPDATE: Don’t follow this guide (see later post). As mentioned in my earlier post one of the things that the Frontier Stove Flue is seriously lacking is a way to guy it down.

The Frontier Stove – using it for a week.

You might think that there isn’t much to add to my last post on the Frontier Stove (or the many posts before it). You are right, there is not (see last posts for how to use) but there were a few issues we found when using it for this prolonged period. First of all creosote build-up, [...]

  Ok so I have written a few posts about setting up the Frontier Stove, finally we come to using it on a real camping trip with a real group of people, including young children (toddlers and babies).   In short there is a bit of a knack to using it and it could do with a few more mods, but it [...]

The Frontier Stove – using it inside a 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). [...]

10 Man Arctic Bell Tent – Fitting the Frontier Stove

Catching up on the comments of others (OK, the one guy who actually reads my blog) and following on from my last Frontier Stove post here is how to fit a Frontier Stove by Camping Solutions to a British Army 10 Man Arctic Bell Tent. To start with in earlier comments I said to buy the 10 to 90mm [...]

The Frontier Stove – First use, review and opinions

5
The most cost effective stove on the market today (at least that’s why I bought one) the Frontier Stove by Camping Solutions is perfect for someone who needs a portable wood stove for occasional use. It comes with easy to follow instructions but they do fail to mention one important thing you need [...]

The British Army 10 Man Arctic Bell tent

14
As mentioned in my earlier post in a bid to save money rather than buying a brand new canvas bell tent we decided to buy an old British Army tent. In the process of working with this tent we have learnt a great deal about it, so this blog posting contains what I know of the history, where to get [...]
