Tent camping virgin

This was my first time camping in a tent. I was shocked at how compact it was, how easy and fast it was to put up and how easy it was pack away again. I went with a very experienced camper, so all I had to do was watch, but . . . I was really blown away. It was up in less than 10 minutes. It was very roomy, even with a queen size air mattress. Two adults and one dog fit marvelously with room for our clothes, hiking boots, books and flashlights. We even set up a potty in the "back vestibule" for emergencies during the night. We had 30+ mph winds and it had absolutely no problems. Maybe it will rain next time and we can test it further. I was impressed and excited about my purchase.

I need to comment on my own review. Be careful what you wish for. My experienced camper friend thinks it is my fault that we spent our next camping trip in a downpour that flooded the river and kept us from canoeing and fly fishing. Just because I "sort of wished for rain" we were able to put the tent through the test. We put it up in the rain and took it down in the rain. It rained for almost 3 three days and nights. The great news is...WE STAYED DRY. The other exciting news is that we had plenty of room for a folding 'love seat' for 2, which held both of us and my dog, plus all of our regular gear. Still very happy with this purchase.
