Adding edge poles to a bell tent

I seem to be doing more blogging now I have said I will stop! Anyway it has been a long time since I last wrote about our British Army Bell Tent, whilst we have gone camping a few times I have not really made any changes to it. That changed this weekend when I added edge poles to it. A while back I [...]

No it’s not a tragic story, just that we have let Bella’s butterflies go (except for the one with the wonky wings, which is also no longer with us), here are some photos of the big day. (more…)

In my last post I mentioned (several times) a bespoke bleed point on my car and that I was forced to install one after I broke the old one, well here (in pictures) is how I built it. (more…)

More Butterflies!

All of our butterflies had finally emerged as of last night. The only one we saw was, sadly, the one from the night before that had seemed stuck. It was definitely stuck, it had been trying to get out for a day so in the end I helped it down from the wall of the enclosure and took the last of the [...]
Hopefully the one emerging will make it, it's one wing (showing) has been getting better during the night, but very slowly

One of our friends found a kit where you can do just that and bought it for Bella (my daughter) for her birthday. The kit (butterfly [...]

November Camping

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 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…)

Fire Bowl

I have been pretty bad at putting up new posts recently, and as such I have loads to write about. One of the shorter articles is about my new Fire Bowl. I got one of these for my birthday, used it on my last trip (6 weeks ago?) and had to write about it. If you are not familiar with fire bowls then [...]
