    Old NC105 near Wiseman's View above the Linville gorge. Testing out my extremely value- conscious Wally world one man tent and a new mattress. I usually sleep under the blue fly in a hammock, but my bike gets that privilege tonight. (Except for the hammock part.) Test result: favorable, but inconclusive due to good weather. Most comfortable I've been on the ground in a long time.

    Full hobo stealth style in a construction site between interstate and train tracks. Arrived too late (dark) to find better place. Spill light from big box store parking lot let me set up without headlamp attracting unwanted attention. Good thing I had earplugs!

    Interesting tent/sleep system, but 22 lbs? Seems like somebody ought to make something like it out of modern materials and cut the weight by half or more.

    I'll have to add Riders' Retreat to my list of MC campgrounds.

    Totally agree... there is a lighter system out there, similar in design, called the Swag tent (Australian I believe, and available over here in Canada) but my reasons for getting this particular system
    1. I like the classic look, I like the use of canvas, The larger wing makes a good shelter for your kit.
    2. The fact that your whole bedding system is rolled in the one unit
    3. Makes a comfy backrest on the ride at a stop
    4. Young couple starting a business, I was happy to support.

    For those who are weight and space conscious, totally agree there’s other minimal systems out there... for me, it’s perfect for my needs on that particular ride (I also have hammock, and tarp but don’t use them nearly as much)

    For the kind of adventuring I do, size and weight are both significant. I'm not the ultra-light guy, I'm the guy who can survive a snowstorm in July. But even then, my kit weighs about 1/2 (maybe 11 lbs) including my 19F bag and 2-man Eureka 3.5 season tent.

    I'll look into the Swag or similar though. Thanks. Ride safe!
