This post has a two fold purpose.
(First) I want to thank Dusty Boots
and Cousin Jack
for putting up with all my PM's about tents.
They shared their knowledge of tent camping to me and what to look for, etc.etc. and it ended up saving me a lot of money (and probably headaches) plus I found a tent that I will be using with my Motorcycle for years to come that suits ME.
(Second) I wanted to share the deal I found that would be good til the end of this month.
First you join REI for $20.00 and that gives you a lifetime membership.
Second I have an internet coupon code: OUT2MAY
Put this in on checkout when they ask for internet coupons.
This is how mine added up:
I got the Tent, 10 MSR ground hogs, lifetime membership, free shipping, with taxes it is coming delivered for a few pennies over $181.00
I guess you could opt out of the lifetime membership, but you are basically getting it for a little over $8.00 because without it you pay around 12 dollars in shipping.
thanks for the link Dusty !
I hope this gives someone on the forum a new tent.
