That picture is awesome! I didn't want to copy and reply since the size is rather large, but awesome picture!

I am planning what most likely will be my last trip this year before winter.

Will be going to Utah first weekend of October.

Just picked this Hogan of a tent up for $40.00 EMS Pampero 4 season tent, not without issues.

The original owner packed the rain fly away wet and never pulled it out to dry the results is Mildew.
I gave it the royal treatment Bathed with Pine sol and a cap of bleach in the bathtub with Hot, Hot Water.
Then after it dried White Vinegar and Salt in Hot, Hot water.
Set it up on the body and sprayed it down with a good coating of Nikwax sealer.

This will be going with me I still have to clean the body and run some seam sealer on the under seams.

You not only have a EMS pampero, but you have the extended front vestible as well!

I have the same set up, LOVE it.

a bit heavy by todays standards, but a very functional design.

This is the closest thing I will ever come to owning a Moss style tent, as a matter of fact I believe Charles Duvall who was a tent Designer for Moss designed this for EMS in the 90's.
If I had a Moss I wouldn't bring one out camping, I was reading someplace that some Moss Owners are coming back to camp finding that somebody stole there tent.
My guess is some of these tents are being sold on Ebay fetching some ridicules price, sick people.
How does one prove it is your tent unless you mark them with a Sharpie?

This is a great thread. I've really enjoyed all the pics of the great places many of you travel to. Makes me feel guilty going to a public campground. LOL

Practice pack I did yesterday for an upcoming trip to Key West. I'll use regular straps in place of the bungees. Don't want to be accused of being a n00b. I ordered a water proof duffle bag hoping that it gets here in time.

If I may make a suggestion . . . .

Get a waterproof compression sack for your sleeping bag -- it'll likely be the size of a nice ripe cantelope, but won't be as comfy for a backrest ;-}

IMHO: Looks like that sleeping bag is a 'cabin' model and won't stuff very well... probably smaller than loose though.
Hmmm... might as well take the tent out of the box though... or maybe the box will be useful starting a campfire.

I was wondering about the size of my bag. I've had it long before I got back into riding. I guess I need to look into a smaller version or the compression thingy mentioned above.

The tent is in it's carrying case. It looks like a box. It cost me $30.00. Yes, I know. I'm a cheap bastard. Should probably be driving a KLR.

Nice looking Honda there Jub. Your sleeping bag reminds me of my old one, a huge Slumberjack I bought in 1985 that I still use when camping out of the truck. 'Course here it's cold all the time and that big boy is real handy, but I got one for the bike that's half the size and I can survive frost with it so it works.

I have one of these lots of straps I can cram Sleeping bag wrapped in a trash bag, Down Jacket, two pairs of jeans, three pairs of underwear, three pair of socks, three T-Shirts, if I put the jeans in another spot I can cram a small one man tent without poles, be a bit bigger than a ripe cantelope.
Make sure the bags are as new as possible.
