Note to Self:

If you want to get a good night sleep... don't put your tent this close to the river when there is a huge thunderstorm in the area.

I kept waking up and thinking "is the river getting louder?"





...but it was worth it.. because this view is just up the trail

Tent?

Like the tent? Brand/model? When you open the rain fly does it let water drip in the tent? I am finding a high percentage of 3 season tents do. Looking for one with a little better design.

Thanks!

It is a "Chaos 2" tent by Alps Mountaineering.
It thunderstormed all night and I never had a drop come in.

We have a bunch of tents (including a 4 season K2) and this is my solo preference.. its super easy to put up and take down, big enough for me and all my gear/luggage (they call it a 3 man), and it packs fairly small.
