Day 5 – to Kegashka we go!

Our day started early and as we packed up the black flies and mosquitos literally ate us alive! Could not get out of there fast enough.

We stopped off at a look-off point called Baie-Johan-Beetz and literally found thousands of blueberries and had a nice early morning feast 😊 Wind blown but what a stunning day!

A long drive about 450kms through valleys that looked very similar to the Labrador tundra. At least three old style snowmobiles that seemed to abandoned along the way on the trails for some reason.

Finally we arrived at Kegashka, literally the end of the road, one restaurant in this town – surprise it was not open on Monday or Tuesday fortunately we had our own lunch so stopped near the sign to eat and change the mud flaps on our truck as the gravel was once again flying up onto our trailer, fine talcum dust was filtering into the trailer!

Kegashka is a very quaint fishing village with a population of only 120.

In winter there is a trail called the white trail which is a snowmobile takes you all the way to Blanc Sablon. 😊

There are many snowmobile bridges here the most famous is the one across the Manicouagan River, in the Baie-Comeau area. At 213 metres long (700 feet), it is the highest snowmobile bridge in the world! The trails here are exceptional and so are the rivers

There are also endless beautiful rivers for those keen on fishing, this is prime country!

Just a little more info to keep you on your toes. 🤣

The awesome foursome at the end of the road!

Heading back we started looking for a camp site for the night, the wind was howling and beach sand was flying.

We went down many side windy dusty roads and came across this Inukshuk cut out of granite, which must have been at least 10 feet tall, pretty cool but no campsite to be found.😊Stopped at an Natashquan (means where one hunts for bear) another small village population of about 265. We went into the “liquor” store to fuel up 😂 although these stores carry literally everything. I ran to snap this sign which was pretty cool, getting sand blasted in the process from the flying beach sand.

Pretty neat to think we were in Blanc Sablon last year!

Late afternoon and finally a campsite!Camping de la Plage at Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan.

Lovely spot right on the beach, stunning night and even better chats around the fire! Nothing better than going to sleep listening to the waves crashing on shore!

Time for fall and winter camping!

Once again the leaves have changed color, the wind is blowing them off in a hurry… fall is well on its way now and winter is lurking once again. BUT if you are a camper, don’t despair, after all there is nothing better than camping in a Helsport Dome, Pasvick, Varanger or Finnmark tent, all of which can accommodate a wood stove. These lavuu tents will keep you all cozy and warm! Be it fall or winter these tents are so easy to set up, add a stove setup  and there is no need to feel cold or miserable camping in the winter.

The Gstove is fantastic for this application, allowing one to cook all your meals with ease. Now with the oven and additional pipe cooking space, there is no shortage of cooking space! Make a lasagna, apple pie or quiche, these are all doable on the Gstove, no need to be a culinary expert! Add a couple reindeer skins for insulation under your sleeping bag and you are all set for a wonderful fall/winter camping experience!

Far too few people balk at the idea of winter camping for fear of the cold but really if you have the right gear it is an incredible experience. Try it this winter you may soon become addicted to the beauty and ease of winter camping!

Not all roof top tents are the same!

Buyer beware we have heard numerous stories of people who fall into buying rtt’s from ‘new brands’ on the Canadian market, and end up with many issues. A lot of these pop up companies are just that, they bring in a few tents flog them and then they disappear, customers are left with a bad taste in their mouths as their warranty and customer service becomes obsolete!

We were the first company in Canada to manufacture roof top tents, previously the roof top tents were all imported from companies originating in the states.

Having been in this industry since 2011 and have made many changes in the design to enhance the tent and not just cosmetically. Our fabrics are high quality waterproof ripstop no leaking, tearing or bending of frames. Customers have been out in torrential rainfalls and strong winds and our rtt’s continue to stand the test of time. Our rtt’s will be able to be passed on for generations with care.

We are proud to stand behind our tents and are always available to talk text or email promptly. We are continuously improving our tents to provide the best product possible.

Our roof top tents all come with annex room no extra charges. The zippers in annex base and cover are ykk and the window zippers sbs. All bases are extruded diamond aluminum sheathing, Mattress is covered and wick proof. Hand strap for those that like to hold onto something when get down ladder. Windows can be rolled up too. Large gear bags for shoes or clothing.

The sundog X includes many extras which is incomparable to any other rtt out there. Check out our website below to see all listed features:

Wild Coast Roof Top Tents

Any questions give us a call, text or email us we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Spring is almost here I can’t wait to get our trailer and rtt ready to explore again! We also have an incredible trip planned to Newfoundland and Labrador later this year.. so keep eye out I will be posting more details as we plan this!

Happy Week everyone and let’s hope this next winter storm will be our last one now!

G-Stove

No regrets with this magnificent Gstove!

We are in love with the g-stove! For those of you that have one… bet you LOVE it and for those considering a stove, get the g-stove, it is a purchase you will not regret.

It is so versatile, use it just under a tarp for camp cooking or in a shed, cottage or yes a tent!

This powerful little stove has many options too … you can buy the heat or the heat and view which has a little glass window, there is the XL heat and an XL heat and view too.

In the photos below you can see the pipe sections they come with, these sections all pack into the Gstove.

Add on a pipe oven which by the way is simply fantastic and cooking in the pipe oven is great.

The pipe oven comes in two models, one that just has a solid door and the premium version that has a glass viewing piece and a thermometer so all depending how fancy you want to be 🙂

More info on the Gstove or to purchase.

We have been trying out different recipes in the oven and so far we have had so much success. We have made lasagna which is to die for, apple pie… YES nothing better than having luxury food while camping YAY…  We have done quiche and pizza rolls. So much still to try and we keep you all updated as we go along.

The lightest shelter of them all is the tarp. It can be used in any situation, from a quick lunch to a camp. With a strong and lightweight fabric, strong reflective guy lines and a creative use of trees and other natural elements, the tarp can be used in countless setups. The LY Tarp is perfect for this type of use.With guy line tensioners designed to be used around objects, and quick attach movable guy lines, the tarp can easily be modified for any campsite. A strong siliconized fabric and reinforced guy points keep the weight down, while keeping the tarp strong and durable.

– Pack bag with roll closure
– Reflective move able guy lines
– Strong guy line points with guy line collectors
– Guy line tensioners to be used around objects

Outer fabric: Helsport Super light 1000, 4000 mm

-18C Camping in a Varanger Camp

I always find this time of year the toughest, I think for me the worst part being an ex South African is not seeing enough sunlight in winter… this winter seems particularly bad and full of grey cold days…snow storm after snow storm… but there is always light at the end of the tunnel…

We recently shipped out a varanger camp to a customer in Ontario and received some really nice feed back and that is enough to make my day feel sunny and warm 🙂

Spent my first practice night in the tent in the backyard.  Best sleep I’ve had in a long time.   Only got down to about -18C so not yet a true test but certainly very comfortable.  I left the tent up for a couple of days including a fairly major snowstorm and it was perfect.

Thanks Mike

Below is a photo of the top hat where the chimney exits, this vent can be opened or closed with the strings on the inside of the tent. You can also see the drying rack that comes with the tent, to hang dish cloths or socks etc.

  You can also purchase additional racks below to hold your kettle or lights or boots 🙂

The above photo shows the inner tent with a frontier Stove for heat. Attached to the frontier stove is the water heater which is super nice to always have hot water on tap. The water is heated up via the chimney and works very well. Alternatively you can go for the more expensive Helsport stove below, which works extremely efficiently.

Here is a Helsport stove being used in the Valhall tent. This tent has a spacious vestibule room big enough to accommodate table and chairs in the middle and on either end can accommodate two inner tents for additional warmth in the winter camping months. It has 6 entries and two entries with mosquito netting. Because of the numerous guy lines, like the varanger, this tent too will stand up well in howling winter storms or summer wind and rain storms.

So come on out and lets play during these cold winter months, if you love camping why stop just because its winter, here are some really cool options to be able to stay warm and enjoy the outdoors when its chilly, snowing or raining…

A little warmth on a cold day…

The Frontier Stoves are extremely popular with those that love the outdoors.

Many people have used it in different weather conditions and it has provided great results to all of them. This can clearly be seen from the customer testimonials available on the Internet. We have even had surfers buying the tent to warm up with after a chilly dip in the Atlantic!

The weight is significantly low, which helps when travelling from one place to another. The legs of the stove lock well to the ground both in open and closed positions. The stove pipes store inside the stove box and this feature enhances the mobility of this product as it also has a handle on the side for potability

.Fronier Stove Badger Bushcraft Review

It is equipped with a well-designed damper to ensure proper air control inside the stove. You can use this in order to control the amount of fuel burnt and get the ideal temperature for your health and cooking purposes. there is also a hot plate on the stove for if you want to cook on open flame

.

The flue sections of Frontier stove slot well into each other and you can purchase extra pieces in order to make the chimney as long as you require it to be. The water heater is equipped with a user friendly carry handle and a tap and slips onto the side of the chimney to be heated. This is an optional extra. The water heater has a lid that slides easily and prevents any debris falling into your water.

Fronier Stove Water Heater Jacket

This stove is extremely popular due to its fuel burning capacity and heat output. Keep the damper open when loaded full of wood to allow maximum air flow, thereby enabling you to enjoy the maximum benefits of you stove. once you have a good set of coals you can turn the damper down.

Fronier Stove Badger Bushcraft Review

The frontier stove is ideal for heating water and making food, not to mention you can go hot tenting anytime in winter and never be cold. Cooking is perfect on the frontier stove, as there is no smoke to contend with while using it, since the smoke goes up and away from your face. If you are using the frontier stove with a tent, make sure you have a spark arrestor on the top and for tents that do not accommodate stoves, make sure the fabric is fire resistant and that you use all safety measures. The frontier stove does have a heat shield mat for the bottom of the stove for hot coals and there are tent kits and shed kits for the flue to go through. However i suggest using this stove with a Helsport Tipi/Lavvu as these tents are designed specifically to accommodate a stove and are perfect for hot tenting.

The Frontier Stove is a great user friendly stove, it is affordable and can be used for many purposes, heating sheds, hot tenting, camping, cooking. We have used ours under a tarp while camping that way keeping us dry in the rain and still being able to cook and stay warm. it is totally functional and user friendly.
