Camping / Re: What tent do you use?
« Last post by Smurf Hunter on Today at 02:34:41 PM »
I use a Coleman 6 person tent. When they say 6 person tent, what they really mean is 4 people, cosily. Its a good summer / fall tent though. I think its about $60, but I got it when it was on sale for $40. I am entirely happy with it as a $40 or $60 dollar tent. Its built well enough that it'll last you for a while. There are cheaper ones, but expect them not to last very long and be flimsy.  Its worth spending more if you are a backpacker, or plan on winter camping, but for our use case, that really isn't necessary.

I started with that around 15-20 years back.  When you have NO camping gear and don't actively camp out, spending hundreds on a tent seems unwise.
The Coleman tents are perfectly comfortable and a good value for fair weather camping.

If you plan to camp at least 3 seasons, in poor weather, low light, by yourself (because your wife is in the car during the thunder shower), there is a quality benefit to a premium brand tent.
Start with the cheap brand, and if you wear it out from frequent use, that means you can justify investing in higher cost material/design later.

Quote
the court on Monday rejected a challenge out of California regarding the right to carry guns outside their homes, leaving in place a San Diego sheriff's strict limits on issuing permits for concealed weapons.

Quote
The case in question involved a San Diego man who said state and county policies requiring "good cause" -- a specific reason or justifiable need to legally carry a concealed weapon -- were too restrictive. A federal appeals court had ruled for the state, and now those restrictions will stay in place.

I know a guy through boy scouts who goes to the TSA store and buys every decent US/EU made blade from those brands. He sells what he finds at cost to scouts and their families.
I have an EDC small kershaw I paid $10 for that sells new for $65.  Given the context of TSA confiscating from passengers trying to board planes, most are folder pocket knives, though I have got a couple fixed blades this way.

when I go to download, and open, it says this " There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired. "  And, still does, I tried downloading agan right now. I have downloaded others, including backwoods mag, both before and after attempting this one

I've got these downloaded in 2 places.  Let me know if you need me to sneaker-net them to you.

It exceedes the size limit to use the on-line viewer and so has to be downloaded. I checked the reloaded 2nd file and it is complete.
