Hey Mule Ears, Thanks for the review (once removed). I have heard nothing but good stuff about these tents. I emailed Henry last week and he, the inventor and seller , wrote me back in 30 minutes. I don't experience that type of service in my daily life and sold me on his tents and his character. I am thinking about the Rainbow because I really like the way he thought about the tent by making it freestanding by using hiking poles. I try to use the theory of multiple use when I am packing and he used it in the tent. I like that. He also told me that so many people now ask for the sewn in floor that it is the default configuration over the classic tarp.. I do not like scorpions since a solo trip in 1993 so I like being in a tent at night. I sleep better. Thanks again. drifter
Dryer, that looks like a great setup. My walks at the Bend are between the first week in Nov. to about the last weekend in Feb. and I usually have to plan for the possibility of sleet , rain or snow. I agree there have been more dry than wet trips but the wet ones would have been milestone trips without tent with a rainfly. For milder weather your setup is the way to go. Thanks , drifter
My wife wants to know, now that I use a tarp all the time, what am I going to do with the 4 tents in the backpacking equipment museum, the refuge camp idea is a possibility.
