I will be rubbertramping it in my old '91 Miata when I hit the road in the spring unless the van gods smile down upon me. I've been looking at one person tents and came across the Kamp-Rite for $99 at the local Bass Pro Shop.

I was wondering if anyone has used one of these. It doesn't collapse small enough for my taste, but it's a tent that's up off the ground. I can't really do the hammock thing because they make my body too stiff and achy just napping in them. I need some elbow room. lol

I'm also open to suggestions of alternative ideas.

I don't have one but would like to have the double for car camping. I think it's a great alternative to regular tents or hammocks. I do like that it seems unitized for quick set up anytime and anywhere. About the only thing I question would be long term durability. It has good reviews on Amazon.

I've been looking at NEMO tents more and more. I know I can get one for less than two bills.

I'm thinking that if my bedroom is going to be a tent, I better have one that lasts.

UPDATE!

So my mom dragged me out to a town garage sale (they set up shop in their elementary school) today and I figured I'd keep my eye open for anything useful for the road. Wouldn't you know the first thing I saw was a nearly new Kamp-Rite tent/cot for $25. I didn't have enough, but my dad tossed me a $20 so I bought it. Once it gets warm enough to camp, I'll test it out a few times and let y'all know how it goes.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
