... tents & camp set up are important here ... on this thread I mean ... aren't they? ... we've got 6 tents methinks ... some are hers, some are mine, some belong to this mythical being called 'we' or 'us' ;-) ...

... this pic from our last year's 5 week east coast trip ...

... tent = Eureka El Capitan ... what we like about it ... enuf room for 2 to sit up & have a pillow-fight ... large vestibule to store all gear ... tent designed that you can keep the door open when it rains and no rain gets into the inner tent (unless the wind blows that way of course, smartass) ... and having 2 large doors each side with flyscreen will also ensure good ventilation when it is either soggy or steaming hot ...

... stove ... Trangia metho (denatured alcohol) stove ... love it, use it all the time for bushwalking (=hiking), sea kayaking & bike camping touring ... not the fastest of stoves (arguably the slowest actually, like me) ... but totally reliable, nothing that can break, also nothing that can explode or burn you unless you are impersonating a complete idiot ...

... also ... some things are very important, even if they elude me ...

... pic of a well set up vestibule ... all important things are perfectly in place ... hair brush, tooth brush, tooth cream , drinking water, reclining chair ... (dat's why it may be important to have hers & his?)

If you're somewhere with trees, forget a tent. This is the way to go. It's a fully enclosed camping hammock. No photos of my own, but here's the link. These things are super comfortable, easy to set up, and you won't get wet. I've been in torrential downpours lasting a couple of days, and not a drop of water on me. Meanwhile, my friends in tents were pretty miserable. The only time I use a tent now is if there are no trees around, and here in B.C. that situation doesn't happen very often.

updating the last post.....found a picture of the hammock. It isn't my photo, but you get the idea. The link isn't working right now either, but I visited their site earlier today and it worked, so be patient.

I used a similar set up to this made by a military supply company in Israel when i was at "Survival training camp" at the Darien gap (in between panama & Colombia) many many years ago, in that enviroment you need "Hamacas" with the ropes treaded with Venom and fancy repelents, to prevent the frogs, snakes and "alacranes" (scorpions) to enter your sleeping quarters, since some of them are deathly even with the counter acting drugs.

ps: except for the hamack you only got a big hat, a knife (not even a compass or a fire block) and a small foldable pouch full of anti-venoms until the helicopter came back to pick you up two weeks later.

Oh and a pair of really tall rubber Boots (way above the knee, that made you sweet like crazy and totally destroy the skin of you feet do to the moisture content) do the same killer reasons.

home for the evening

North Face Peregrine... I love that sucker. Hammerhead shape with extensions on the rain cover, perfect for placing gear you don't want in the tent, but don't want out in the rain.

It pays to have friends at REI who call you when good returns come in. :)
