We have a big Kelty Trail Dome (not as nice as your Erueka) but it's a 4 man with a 6'6" center. I must say the tall tent with a big fat air bed is really nice. I had a Mountain Hardware 1 man for bicycling & motorcycling and can tell you getting in and out got harder with every year.................
I like the looks of the way you were set up in the above photo.

Actually the Whispelite is a stove. I have been using one for over 23 yrs & had a plugged jet once.
Great & dependable stove.
Boy, I put my foot in my mouth there Vance!
I know about the Whisperlight stoves, I too have had jets clog but it's the fuel not the jet when that happens. Please don't take this as one upping your 23 years of use but I got mine in 1980............
Based on that you would think I would have realized that MSR probably doesn't make a tent by the same name......duh.
Whenever I drive through a campground like down at Bing's Landing, or there at Moose river I notice MSR tents in use but cannot say what models they are. So............I should have given what I said some thought before I blurted out the reply.
Now about stoves, for spring - summer - fall use I picked up a Sno Peak back in 2005. Unbelievable convenience with an ignition button that fires it up. The stove itself packs so small that it's amazing, they run on the little butane tanks which are also very small.
I went to this because of the soot and priming business with the MSR stove. However, in cold weather the Sno Peak is not efficient due to the gas contracting. The old Whisperlight is still needed in winter.
Thanks for setting me strait,
