Exploring ….

Exploring a little of the Fundy coastline ….

We decided to take a drive on some less travelled roads near along the Fundy shore and set up camp on one of the beaches we found.

We set up the Sea Shell within a few minutes literally, the ladder was even stable enough on the rocky beach. the views were amazing too!

It still amazes me how many wonderful areas there are to camp in Nova Scotia, I am not talking about the regular camp sites i mean literally finding a spot along a beach or in the backwoods, along a beat up, dusty, pot holed road, next to a forgotten no named lake. There is nothing like spending time in places like these where you will not likely bump into another soul and where all you hear are the sounds of nature,

I know the luxury of having a bathroom in the bush or on a remote beach is not there but a porta loo will do just fine for a night or two 🙂 come on you can do it 🙂 not to mention it makes getting back home to the comforts a real treat 🙂

We started out early from home to explore some back roads but along the way we found a picnic spot and decided to pull out the zoom versa and have some breakfast,

We lit the versa, popped on the bacon and watched the seals playing in the ocean while it cooked. i put the eggs in tin foil next to the bacon and in a few mins they were cooked beautifully… i still sit in fascination at how quickly it was lit and cooking our eggs and bacon, in a flash our food was done! What a fabulous stove so efficient and so easy to use, and what a treat to be able to have a good breakfast watching seals playing in the ocean.. life is good!Image

We are “wild” about our customers!

Long lazy hot summer days are so perfect for our roof top tents, jump in your vehicle and go wherever the wind takes you. These tents are made to enjoy the outdoors in any spot you choose from campground to the middle of nature. You don’t have to have the expense and fees of RV’S or the discomforts of ground tents with stones sticking in your back or an uncomfortable sleep pad. Enjoy the comfort of a mattress, a view , cool air blowing through your tent on a hot summers evening. Chill in the middle of nowhere in comfort what could be better…

So another tent delivered, and all I can say is how blessed we are to have such fantastic customers, below are a couple of pictures and comments from Shaun and Jenny who bought an outpost from us. Gorgeous location and of course an awesome tent! 🙂  Thanks guys for the photos and feedback, it was a pleasure dealing with you both! Hope to see you around Nova Scotia’s wild spots 🙂

From Shaun & Jenny

“What I can say is that we went yesterday back to the newly opened bowater mersey land and had a blast. The tent set up was pretty quick, the annex took about 20 minutes.  Once again, thanks for the great tent and service ”

From Shaun & Jenny

PS. The annex room will take less time to put up next time round, we keep our floor attached to the annex which makes it a lot quicker to put up. Takes us about five, six mins to slide it in and zip it on.

EcoZoom rocket Stove back in the woods!

EcoZoom in the woods

It is difficult not to love the EcoZoom Rockets stoves whether it be the Dura or the Versa. We have spent many hours cooking on theses stoves. This last weekend we took it into the woods to fire it up and see how it would work on a windy day. We collected a few twigs and a bitch of birch wood and used a firesteel to start it. It could not have been easier. Before we knew it the fire was roaring and we added a couple of bigger sticks we found lying on the ground and our little rocket stove was ready to do its thing..

I figured a cuppa tea was first order of business as who can resist a cuppa hot tea with a view overlooking the water, birds whistling in the trees eagles flying over our heads, couldn’t be a more perfect setting to have a cuppa hot tea 
The water boiled so quickly and in no time we were enjoying our tea. I quickly popped on the bacon and it was soon sizzling, I had to pull back the sticks a little to reduce the heat so it wouldn’t cook so fast. I still needed to finish my tea!

The wind was blowing but the little EcoZoom kept on going, we were not even using the metal skirt for it. Soon I popped on the eggs and in a blink they were done, breaky was made, the view gorgeous, my EcoZoom is sure to always be a loyal companion.
