Tents and Shelters / Re: Best Place for Stovepipe Jack?
« Last post by trapmusher on Today at 07:19:33 AM »
I had mine placed so the stove is away from the door. Someone falling on the stove can result in a 911 situation. The door is the high traffic area (the only real traffic area!). Between grandkids and dogs, I was not taking any chances.

Yep, the door area is colder. Yep, wood must be carried another 8 feet. Yep, the mess isn't right at the door.

If inside the tent facing the door, mine is on the right side, but I'm not sure it would make a difference either side. Close to the door, if something goes wrong, you can always push or kick the stove out the door.

Went to the website and I could not find anything on price.
Not sold on the electric power.

Yup, front is best. Particularly good if you are using a ridge pole as you are able to wire the pipe to the pole. I have seen them on both left and right side of the door.

Tents and Shelters / Best Place for Stovepipe Jack?

I just got a good deal on an almost-new 8 x 10 x 4 canvas wall tent. Wondering the best place to sew in a stovepipe jack. I know Dave Hadfield prefers the front left rather than the roof. I respect Dave's knowledge. Other opinions?

Central UP has a good amount on the ground... 14" where I go fishing in the Hiawatha NF.  Drill a hole, enjoy the slush.

I don't really understand how it steers. Unlike the SnowDog it doesn't have a handlebar, just the remote steering joystick. I thought it must have twin tracks but the website says not. So, how does it turn?

My guess is that the range/endurance will be rather low. Tracked vehicles require more power than wheeled vehicles in general and the power density of batteries is still much lower than a tank of fuel. Might be suitable for work around a farm or for a set distance but not for anything where long range is required.

Steers much like a articulating loader does in this case the pivot point is the hitch so it needs the toboggan or something attached to pivot off of....guy pulling it with the leash would have to steer it with the leash on its own.

Far from sold on electric vehicle anything because of limited range which drops as life gets colder let alone cost.

Yes lots of snow here in North Bay. Was some slush on the lakes when I was out last week however.

Couldn't really tell, but I'm guessing it must run on a bogey wheel system like the old elans....don't think the current slider system used for most snow machine type vehicles would last long in summer use situations.  Sure seems to have the ability to pull, wonder how much it weighs.  Must be geared pretty low.  Wonder if there is a reverse?  Too many questions, lol!
