Maybe I'll be lucky enough to contribute to this thread soon enough. All my overnight fishing trips so far in my brief tenure in fly fishing have involved hotels, streamside naps under no cover besides the stars, or cabins. The only fabric shelters have been the wearable kind! I like Thorsten's set-up the best, but the Southerner in me really craves some of that Dutch Oven Corn Bread...

I have been watching on theclymb for a good two or three person one. Just havent snagged one yet. The one I have, forget the brand, but its a big four person one for when my friends and I used to go camping, want a smaller one that is simple to put up for when I go solo fishing and rather just stay around there instead of paying for a room.

In another thread I mentioned that I first saw Ted Williams fly cast at the Boston Sportman's Show when my parents were there looking to buy a camp trailer.
This is what they got. A 1963 Apache Chief,... including the bunk beds.
It replaced the old, hot, floor-less canvas cabin tent we used previously. Just like in the ad.

Woozer! Talk about a walk down memory lane. That old canvas tent sent me back close to 50 years. Wife Type, the two kids and I used one of those for years. The tipping point was a trip down on the Toutle River ... and rain and more rain, and more ......

Four people 'trapped' in one of those things was no picnic. Finally tossed the kidlets in the car and just rolled up the tent and stuffed in the car trunk. Week later we purchased a used 17' fifth wheel. Even that small provided a lot of living space. The cab over even had a full on king sized bed.

That was the kids 'play room' if the weather went toes up during the winter, or spring, or ..... Finally 'up-graded' in 1986 to a 24 footer. A 'private bedroom' was a 'good thing.'

Tents are overrated.. Hammocks sleep 1000x better...

Comfort sometimes must be sacrificed (not entirely) for utility which many times will equal 'comfort' as well. The setup you picture above will be fine at a state park on a car camping trip with no wind. I've pitched my tents from Gros Morne National Provincial Park (north west Newfoundland) to western Kodiak Island and way too many points between to be remembered in a post. Through it all I've seen conditions ranging from 80 mph Aleutian gales driving inches of rain onto the land, to waking to find an additional 13" of snow had fallen overnight in the Wolf Run Wild Area of Pennsylvania. The winds of Wyoming and Montana will also challenge a tarp setup as well.

Pitching a tent is a chore, especially one like the North Face Expedition 25 that I reserve for the worst of the worst but the ones I own have stood the test of some really bad conditions. For comfort you add a Big Agnes mummy air pad (super small & light when packed) and a good down bag. It isn't for everyone but it's always worked for me

My deluxe room for winter wilderness survival with Search and Rescue. I woke up under 2 feet of new snow and coyote tracks all over.
