    You gotta be VERY carefu with those propane heaters.

    I don't know which brand the hunters were using, but this past weekend, we had 3 hunters die down here in central Texas while using some unnamed brand of propane heater to heat their camping/box trailer.

    No, definitely not air tight. The blue flame vent free was the one I was looking at. I was telling the wife I thought about going ahead and getting one.

    apparently the "IR plaque" models can add a blower fan - but then you can't watch the flames in the dark. :)
    the 10k BTU (little one) is under $85 with free shipping from a certain non-southern tool store.

    Yeah I have the medium sized one for ice fishing. Works well for smaller spaces, and like vik said, has a low O2 safety so you don’t go to perma-sleep. Actually had it trip once, when it was like 30 below, and needed to open the door flaps to get some fresh air in. FYI, the settings are low, medium, and “holy crap, I can’t feel my left...foot”

    yeah - the ones that you can screw a 12 oz propane bottle onto specifically state "do not use in a tent" because they produce so much carbon monoxide and have no safeties.

    I don't have electricity there. Wouldn't need a blower fan, it's so small anywhos. I saw the ones you're talking about. SG has them on sale as well.

    If I were to use some kind of heater in a cabin, I would put a CO detector down near the floor to pick up on any CO build-up.

    My Bro-in-law Uses an Aladdin vertical burning K-1 Has for years. It sits right in his living room. That might be an option also @The Warrior

    it was spendy, but i was in a good position at the time, and there was a good reason

    i hear one might find a few backwater liquor stores (like in the SOUTH!) that have them on discount rack for $100!

    had it a long time, i keep it in a dark and secret place, and it's not touched a lot, but i let it breath some.

    i use the old branch water (aka finest glacier well water)

    there are intriguing things about it. it's crazy smooth. it wants to roll and loll around.

    definitely a "take hour to breath and experience life at a slower pace"

    B's make a fairly decent set of things. they have both a peated and non peated in the $50 range. worthy.

    right now, i have a decent Ardbeg, 2:1 water:dram, and it's a lovely thing to contemplate

    that's funny as i was drawn to that model first... portable non-electric heat come up on a mailing i'm on too, as well as a couple wood working forums. hah.

    strongly considering it... been a bit nippy around here (double digit minus)...

    we're expect a "SUPER STORM", nor'easter, whatever you want to call big winds and a foot of snow tonite. 99% of everything pre-emptively just OFF and shutdown without a flake flying yet. then on the weekend, a super artic cold front (coldest days yet?)

    seriously, Boston is so ... whipped ... by weather, that the mayor has made a habit now of announcing in advance ... things. it's just comical ;) all the surrounding towns cannot wait to start fining people for not shoveling (which the towns themselves often fail their own duties ;) and the car towing should be epic too.

    oh hai, based on reports here, i went and ordered a snugpack blankee. good lord those things exceed expectations on being warm and even thinner than my favorite narcoleptic nap blanket. keeping one in the car fo-sho

    quite a bit north, doesn't sound like an actual Nor'Easter. so much panic and drama :D

    btw, ignore my first two bunkers, they're just honey traps... you really want the 7th one ;) that one is perfectly safe. i won't be IN IT mind you ;)

    @Bladite They seem to drama it up around these parts also. Its called Winter!!! I spent the first 43 years of my life in Florida. Everybody not from there complained about the heat and humidity. But us natives just called it Summer

    Was driving home yesterday and a truck flew past me on the right and very obviously lost traction. Glad I didn't see an accident, but crap like makes me think Alaskans cannot drive.
