Title: Loitering within tents...
Post by: bloodfalls on June 07, 2013, 21:32:39
...or should I perhaps browse in stemware while my anger simmers?

No, seriously - I'm looking at tents at the moment, just casually, not necessarily going to buy one but eventually I'll need a replacement as mine gave up a few years back and was written off.

What about this kind of thing? Any good? Anyone know of something better/similar?

I'm after something that is big enough for me, plus possibly camera gear etc.... plus my bad back! So in other words, room for a decent bed, and room to sit up straight inside. It must be portable enough to carry with me on a trail, away from the car.

Yes, I'm going crazy - just humour me, it's yet another mid-life crisis  :garfield:

I went on the Khyam site to get a link to show you one's we have as they are very good.  Only I got side tracked and found this -

So youre lookin for a tent huh. Have you tried looking in your local go outdoors showroom. They will have every tent they stock erected. I personally have the hi gear mojave 5.  It sleeps 3 of us comfortably for at least 1-2  weeks a year.  Might be worth a butchers.

Looks really great - I just watched a video about it. Probably a bit large for me as I want something portable for backpacking, but I might bear it in mind if I suddenly stop being single some day (come on then, lay your odds and place your bets...!  :garfield: ).

As the great Antonio Gaudi said when asked why he hadnt married. He replied that he couldnt find any girl to match his intelligence. Marrying a lesser intelligent girl he said just wouldnt be right. You could always use that one.

Good plan! After all, modesty of that calibre is SO attractive :)
