Im looking to give away an unused one man tent, but I want it to go to someone who really needs it. So, convince me.

Does a one man tent fit the curves of a woman? But seriously, whatcha got there BPJ?

I've been monitoring things on the Puget Sound homefront (and NWH) from western NY state; here on an urgent family matter.  I saw BPJ's offer late last night, and am now ... speechless.   stun.gif  biggrin.gif 

BPJ says he won't even accept partial payment.   borank.gif

When I get back to the NW, I may take the opportunity to see Cle Elum for the first time (I don't get around much east of the Cascades) and thank him in person.  I had to promise that I'd sent pix of the first use.  Will also post a back yard shot of my old "tank" solo tent, vintage 1980-something.  If I'm able to get out for a brief time to some of the beauty spots around here, will post a TR.

Very nice gesture BPJ! But I have to say upon viewing the link, that is one ugly tent and 600+ frickin' dollars? wow.

Everybody's a critic!  Its way light and packs up small.  That and the fabric is stronger than heck.  I just realized that I had three Cuben Fider tents. I don't need three of them, and Miss. Mary it seems can really use it.
