    Adam (K6ARK) Breaks down tents and features for what we need to look for in a tent. We go over things to look for in a tent, key features, and types of water proofing. This in depth dive is a perfect guide for tent buying.

    I thought this was going to be about dangerous insects and animals!

    you got to think about what kinda of insects and animals are around to select the right tent. On the other hand, if your in Grizzle Country, the CORRECT answer is a cabin.

    I still have my Bibler Fitzroy. Utterly bomb proof, but heavy.

    My preference is to pack a tarp, ground sheet and bug net. Way more versatile and practical over all. If I was stuck in US7's situation I would go nuts though. On the boat I found its better to anchor well offshore over fighting bugs. I lost my want to go camping long ago though and now my idea of camping is the Holiday Inn. My last SOTA type operation was renting a cabin in VT. Woodstove, running water and window screens. Ya. That's the ticket.
