Anyone know of a heater, preferably inexpensive, that's safe to use in a tent?
My buddy who is a hunter has a Mr. Heater Buddy that he has loaned me a couple times. Honestly, never used it though. Just googled it and they are about $70 on Prime.

They also have different sizes depending on how big of tent you have. Uses the little green propane bottles or a big one with a converter hose.

I know someone that used one of those buddy things, and yeah, it was scary.

Here we are talking about heating a tent and I'm going to be on a campout this weekend with a couple of my little kids and it's supposed to be freezing Friday. Ugh

Fall camping is the best. Build a big camp fire and sit around it with your kids as long as you can.

I used to know a man who served in WW2 and was stationed in Alaska. He told once about sleeping out when they were out on maneuvers. Said the sleeping bags they were issued would keep them warm but they had to undress before getting in them so as not to sweat in their clothes. That was the worst part he said, undressing and getting out to dress in the morning.

I agree with getting a good sleeping bag. If you try using a heater, besides being a fire hazard, don't forget about carbon monoxide.
