As some of you may have heard I am planning a big trip with four of my kids. We plan to head west across the country and if all goes well end up on the west coast. There is a lot of planning involved, particularly to keep the trip affordable. Today L and I set up our tent to make sure we don’t have any unexpected surprises along the way. We have titled our adventure Our Travel Extravaganza!
My tent of 20+ years needed replacing, so we recently replaced it with an almost identical Timberline from Eureka. It’s only a four man tent, which basically means it sleeps two people nicely. There will be five of us on this trip, but a couple will sleep in the back of the Suburban. I debated the idea of purchasing a larger tent, but I really love how this tent is so easy to put up, self supporting and compact. Space is always a premium when traveling with a large family. I looked at some really neat tents that can be attached on to the Suburban too, but in the end I figured the Timberline was our easiest and most versatile option long-term. Besides I know this tent well having spent many a night in another.
