My original Eureka Great Western tent.
In July of 2011, I was on vacation on the Androscoggin River in Northern New Hampshire at the Mollidgewock State Park Camground. Towards the end of the week I was beaking down camp and packing my vehicle to go home. I had taken the tents stakes out of the ground and rolled the tent on it's side to wipe the moisture off the bottom as I have done for the last 22 years that I have had this tent. There was vertually no wind at all and then suddenly there was a micro burst of powerful wind of about 40 to 50 mph. It ripped the tent right out of my hands and picked it up in the air about 20 feet and blew it out into the middle of the river where the water is 30 ft deep. I tried to rescue it with my canoe, but, it had filled up with water quickly because the windows were opened and I couldn't move it in the current. It sank to the bottom in about 15 minures or less. I just put a Eureka Titan tent on lay-a-way at Hilton's Tent CIty in Bostom, Ma after seing one on display. I was very impressed at this tent features and quality.
