dprather,It's you, the others on here and of course the Bend. I've been interested (1st step before trying it and then addiction) since my last trip out west. We "car camped" in a primitive spot. Now I want to take the next step. Maybe an overnighter. Maybe the South Rim like that couple, although I prefer the desert floor. For the last few months I've been researching and asking questions. I have a lengthy word document of NEEDED equipment and WANTED equipment. I have models, brands, prices, etc.My town doesn't have a decent camping store, just the old box stores. Online is cheap but you don't get to try it on, see it etc.Last week I was in the Dallas area and got to look at some stuff close up at an REI and a Mountain Sports in Arlington. I'm impressed with the quality of stuff. Really took to the Osprey Atmos 65 backpack. Someone on here recommended it. Browsed tents, sleeping pads, chairs, etc. Didn't buy anything but made notes.Now I'm back to my list and extra jobs to pay for it!!But thanks for being one of the pushers!
REI is having a nice sale now.
