MKMGOBL - Interesting idea, using it in a ladder stand...many years ago in Georgia, used a old Coleman Catalytic Heater in a tree stand that I had. It was -8 degrees F when I went out and got it going before heading out to the stand, and glad I took it....saw 7 does that morning and when they got down wind of the heater fumes that blew and bolted....

I was planning of using the Buddy Heater in a blind if it every gets that cold down there....take a couple of bottle of propane in a back pack and see what happens...so far the weather has been warm enough just to use hand warmers......

Yesterday bought a another milk crate for another 9 - 1 lbs of propane bottles. this is the 7th milk crate that will have the 1 lbs bottles in it!!! I know I do have a problem..am I a hoarder?? Next it will be getting yet another milk crate for a 20 lb tank of propane, will make it my 6th with those....love those milk crates!!!

PS - Many years ago I purchase 2 Black Cats from Coleman. They are small enough to fit on top of the 1 lb bottles...they do not have a O2 sensor built into them like the Mr. Buddy does...I agree with Metalman, you might want to get an CO2 detector as a safety precaution....and please vent your enclosure!!! We want you back.....

bo- with all the 1# tanks you go through, you should look into a 3#-5# tank. if it's just for the cabin, why not just do a 20#. it will save you some money in the long run and you don't have to mess w/ changing all the time

Yari - The reason why I standardize on the 1 lb and the 20 lb tank is not because of the propane tank/bottle size, it is those milk crates that I like to use. All of them that hold the 1 lbs bottles are stackable to the ceiling and the 20 lb tanks in the milk crates are very stable in the crates...never have to worry about them tipping over....You can even stack a crate with those 1 lb bottles under the 20 lb tank crate.....

The milk crate hold exactly 9 - 1 lb bottles and the 20 lb propane tank fits into one of those crates with a 1/16" to spare!!

When I had my new camper, I use the 30 lb propane tanks and you could run forever on those....at our hunt club in GA we have a 100 lb take we use and fill up once a year to cook with and to make coffee in the morning.....

The milk crates can be a very useful container and they can stack as well.......

Snort - Do you have the ring that goes around the 1 lb bottle ?? it use to come standard on lattern and things now you have to buy it separate....

Look at this one.....https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Burner-Bottle-Stove-200020950/dp/B00D8G47QQ/ref=sr_1_24?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1515789104&sr=1-24&keywords=1+lb+propane

It is the plastic ring that the bottle fits into...make it stable as a rock.....

Bo - another option is to make a little wooden base for it.  Bro in law lost or broke his plastic one, so I just made one for him in the shop, took about 15 minutes.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
