    G-Stove Heat View – Tipiofen Zeltofen – Jurtenland

    Der Zeltofen G-Stove Heat View. Hallo hier ist der Ralph von Jurtenland. Herzlich Wilkommen hier in unserer Jurte. Lagerfeuer brennt. Uns ist ein neuer Zeltofen zugelaufen, den habe ich selbst noch nicht gesehen. Die Beschreibungen haben mich zwar fasziniert. Das ist ein Ofen komplett aus Edelstahl, geschweißt. Also dürfte ein sehr wertigen Eindruck nachher dann gleich machen. Es handelt sich um den G-Stove. Das ist ein ganzes System von Zeltöfen. Das fängt an vom Ofen selber über einen Wasserspeicher über ein kleines Backofenfach, was man dazu setzen kann. Aber was wir heute in diesem Karton wohl drin haben, ist das G-Stove Heat View.

    Stove Jack Tips for Any Tent | Pipe Out the Shelter Side Wall

This is the small bum bag that I carry with me when I’m hiking in the snow and the bush. If I am trekking…

    Hey everyone Billy Rioux. Well, I just spent the night, outside. Winter on the lake. Today is about -25 C. And I really wanted to show you a minimal winter camping kit. If you wanna go outside in winter time. But it’s very minimal. So you need a good sleeping bag, with a mat. It’s very hard to speak now, because it’s very cold. And I always carry a blanket. To cover myself in front of the fire or on my sleeping bag at night. I carry always another pair of glove. I’ve got an axe. I’ve got a kettle.
