REI Loves My Wallet

Whee! I picked up my new tent from REI yesterday. I can already tell it's going to be sweltering inside there in eighty degree weather. Now, if I can just figure out what that stray piece of string is for. O.o (I'm sure my father will know.)

Edited to add: Oops! I missed a couple of stake points. I thought it looked badly setup!

Does it have a window? Or a screen door? Or an electric outlet so you can plug in your air conditioner?

That's with the rain fly on. The tent itself has a screen running across the top. I didn't see any windows on the fly. I guess I can set up just the tent if I'm absolutely sure there'll be no rain.

lol WTB: Portable air conditioner.

I have zero outdoor skills, but it looks like a nice tent even when poorly set up. If you're making the big trek in June, you may not have to worry about it getting too hot, at least not at night.

Yeah, at the beginning, heat shouldn't be a problem. It's July where it could be a problem.

You're so adventuresome...Rex's idea of camping (and I agree with him) is staying in a town that doesn't have a Ritz-Carlton...

Just dropped off my EntreCard and gave you my Saturday morning Battle of the Blogs vote.

Good luck!
