New Sierra Tent Camping experience
In August of 2010, I hiked into Yellowstone's Thorofare for an seven-day excursion. Had a wonderful time but packed a little too much gear, including a seven-pound Eureka Timberline tent and an REI down sleeping back that lost much of its warming qualities while maintaining fighting weight of five poinds. I decided to lighten up in September of 2012, when two close friends and I scaled Montana's Granite Peak, which is the highest peak in our state. Prior to going anywhere in the backcountry I needed to jetison weight so purchased a new sleeping bag and a new Sierra Lightning backpacking tent from Campmoor. Their description of the tent let me know exactly what to expect, from set-up, through the sleeping experience and, finally, through tear-down. I bought it and used it with no surprises. Campmoor's website and catalog made the shopping experience a thorough one, and very simple. The tent and sleeping bag allowed this 58 year-old to enjoy the climb and focus on the task-at-hand, without having to fight the gear.
