Adventure Anywhere– We’ll Tag Along | The Solo Stove Guide To Portability

By Carolyn Owen

Life is busy. Every day, there’s a commute to make, laundry to do, and bills to pay. Coupled with social media’s constant reminder to compare the life you have to the life you want, peace can feel out of reach. When it feels like nothing will ever slow down, it’s important to remember one thing: you can always reconnect with what matters most to you.

When the weight of the world makes us lose track of what brings us peace and joy, it’s easy to feel out of balance. Taking time to reconnect to the experiences and people that put you back into alignment is worth it. That’s where we come in.

In a world that never stops moving, Solo Stove stops the clock. Our products were designed to make it easy to spend time around a fire, wherever you want to light one. It doesn’t matter where you find peace– we’ll meet you there. Grab some fire logs and close Instagram– it’s fire pit time.

What Makes Solo Stove Fire Pits Ultra-Portable?

Solo Stove Fire Pits and their counterpart accessories were designed to function as an ecosystem. Nearly every accessory nests perfectly inside of your fire pit so you can always have the safest, most fun fire pit experience wherever you go. You’ll find an included carry case included in every Bonfire and Ranger box, making your fire pit an adventure-ready minute-man. While Yukon wasn’t designed for portability, you can still nest accessories inside for storage.

Adventure anywhere– we’ll tag along. Keep reading to see where your fireside journey can take you:

The Backyard

You shouldn’t have to go far to reconnect with nature. Trendy content might lead you to believe that only the most special, remote, and attractive settings will provide a much-needed escape from the day-to-day grind. While it certainly doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by breathtaking scenery, it’s possible to find the peace you’re craving right where you are by creating a camping experience with just a couple of firelogs.  Bonfire is the fire pit built for the backyard and beyond. Its size makes it the perfect place for up to 5 people to gather, but it only weighs about 20 lbs., so you’re not limited to one spot. If you have a small space or plan to be on the go more often, Ranger is the best fire companion. To fill up lots of space, Yukon is perfect as a more stationary option. As long as you use a Stand, feel free to use any Solo Stove Fire Pit on a Deck or heat sensitive surface. Your fire pit is the best start to a night fueled by nature, and the experience keeps getting better when all the right accouterments are involved. Check out our Backyard Bundles to get the most out of your fireside time at home.

How many times have you sat in your driveway to watch the sunset? Have you ever met a new neighbor just because they stopped to chat? How about knowing your kids are safe while they’re riding their bikes up and down the street simply because you can see them? Turns out, there are lots of opportunities to connect with life right in your front yard. Light up your fire pit and stay a while, the best moments are right ahead. For the front yard, we’d recommend Bonfire or Ranger, so you can easily put your fire pit away once you’re done burning. For those looking for the most inviting option, Yukon might just be your go-to. Check out our Ultimate Bundles to make the night even more fun for everyone.

Let’s face it– food brings people together. Throw your Bonfire Cooking System Bundle in the truck and get ready to make some new friends– you’re going to be turning heads in the parking lot. Football fans and flame-kissed food go together like ketchup and mustard, and when you show up with the secret ingredient to a good time, you’re bound to make some memories. Even if you don’t enter the stadium, you can watch the game fireside. Football games are usually cold anyways– no thank you.

Your home away from home shouldn’t feel like a compromise. With a fire pit portable enough to make any house feel like your own, you’ll be able to unwind as naturally as possible. Bonfire and Ranger are perfect for upgrading a rental property or temporary getaway. Add in some Sticks to make the night pop with some sweet s’more treats.

It’s time to make the beach bonfires of your teenage dreams a reality. If you’re taking a fire pit to the beach, make sure you’re using a Stand since sand tends to be an uneven surface. Equip yourself with a Shield to keep embers from popping out of your fire pit and onto sandy surfaces where bare feet are sure to land. The same goes for boat docks and decks– make sure you use a Stand. But most importantly– have fun. These are the experiences you were born to have.

Remember when we said Bonfire was built for the backyard and beyond? This is the “beyond” we were referring to. Pop your fire pit in your car and get a move on– the whole world is your backyard now. Solo Stove Fire Pit Accessories are made to nest inside of your fire pit, so you never have to limit yourself while on the go, even when it comes to cooking. At home, your recipes shine. How could you possibly create the same greatness at a campsite without the kitchen you know and love? With a Fire Pit Cooking Bundle. Check them out to get your roast on.

Dedicated fire pit users might try to bring their fire pits along on a hiking trip. While Ranger makes the best companion in this setting, it won’t fit in a backpack for longer hikes. Don’t worry, you don’t have to sacrifice your experience around the fire because of size. Years ago, Solo Stove was founded in a garage as our first line of Camp Stoves came to be. We were dedicated to providing hikers and campers with the best gear long before we got into the fire pit game. Click here to learn more about our Camp Stove line.
