Sleep like a monkey in the Tentsile -- a hammock/tent hybrid that will have you high up in the trees surrounded by nature. The UK maker of this tent touts the Tentsile as the world's most versatile tent for good reason - it gives you the ability to camp in some interesting locales. To get it set up, string its three anchor points from trees and viola -- you'll be up above the ground, away from crawly insects, snakes, and even bears. The suspended three-person tent could also keep you safe in flash flood areas or other spots prone to natural disasters. Either way, it's kind of like having a portable treehouse - and we think that's pretty neat.
accommodation for three people. With three anchor points and the use of tension instead of poles, the Tentsile is part tent and part hammock. The structure is made from a collapsable frame of webbing straps with fire retardant, UV PU and water resistant polyester fabric infill panels. The three points serve as sleeping chambers and the middle is held in suspension and serves as a vestibule and gathering space. Access is gained via a rope ladder in the middle. It comes in a wide variety of colors and each tent is made by hand and there is also an option to hang the tent with a stand if no trees are available.
The UK tent maker touts this tent for a wide variety of travel styles, for backpacking in the woods, and even as disaster relief shelters. The tents pack down for portability and are durable for long use. The suspended setup means you’re off the ground and away from wet, damp, flooded or snowy conditions. You’re also out of reach from ground-based wildlife, except for maybe those pesky tree snakes. Tentsile seems especially handy to enjoy access to otherwise inhospitable terrain, like swamps, bogs, rocky slopes, and vegetation packed areas. Just be sure you like sleeping in a hammock and don’t mind rocking as you drift off into dreamland.

can you imagine how badass it would be to live in one of these? camo=complete stealth. no one would ever know you were there and you could stay anyplace that has sizable trees! exciting.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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
    $70.75 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 read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
Last week i took some trains i ain't rode in a while. Sparks->elko->green river->cheyenne->denver->amarillo->belen
I did some really important tweaking of the navigation menu on StP today. It should be significantly easier for mobile users to get around :)
Anyone in Chicago?!? Just rolled into town, next stop Minneapolis
