Strike one

Here’s the tent I set up yesterday.

I uploaded a bunch of pics at once, and now I can’t type captions with them, so I’ll just list the flaws:

– too seamy. Even the mesh had seams. The floor is sewn to the tent, and the walls are sections, all sewn together.

– the windows don’t unzip all the way down

-the door is funky, two seperate zipper tracks for screen or full-on open door, more to get tangled up, caught on fabric, etc.

– overall material was chintzy – but it is only eighty bucks.

– the stakes were cool, they had tips that fit into grommets, so no shoving anything up the end of it

– the rainfly hooked on with a…um…thingie. Clicked into it – like a clip on the waistband of a backpack. So that was also easy. It was very easy to set up, imussay.

We sat around in it…sweating our eyeballs out. I ain’t keepin’ it. Didn’t get to set the second one up, tequila got in the way.

ETA:

From the Target site:

Comfortably Holds 5 People – “Yeah fucking right.” – my friend who helped me set it up and sat in it with me

ETA2:

The BEST 1:28 of your life.

That long plastic thing hooks to the outside of the tent, a little mat. Nice thought, not terribly practical. Adds more stuff to put a hole in the fabric, for one thing.

    Did you not get the Space Station?

    By “comfortably” they mean “if you stack them like cordwood” and by “people” they mean “midgets or Twiggy”. A better guide is to see if the square footage is listed.
