New Tent Smell!

Kirk surprised me with a gift today. A Henry Shires Tarptent Double Rainbow!

Wooooo! I am excited! I have wanted one for so very long. The past two years when Ford and I go on trips I have flipped between a AntiGravity Gear tarp tent that didn’t have a zipper (which while a nice tent I just couldn’t get past the tiny chance of bugs getting in) and a heavy nearly 5 lb tent that while comfy was just awful to pack – and was even worse in summer – it has almost no mesh so while warm in winter, you’d cook in summer heat.

So I am hoping that this will provide me with a happy medium of lightness, packabilty and room inside.

Pictures will come when I have time to set it up and most of all, get my first bag night in it!
