My husband and I have decided to start camping. Like for real camping. Like, let’s go fly a kite, go on an enormous hike – then pitch a tent and watch the stars drift camping. But since we’ve NEVER done anything like this before, we decided to start in our backyard first. We also decided to get a super amazing tent that we could use to camp in the Arctic if needed. Hey. You never know! We could be camping at Enchanted Rock one day – go on a hike – make a wrong left turn, then BAM! Right in the middle of the Arctic. I’ve heard this happen before. Nonfiction Narnia stuff.
First, we *ahem, Alen* cleared the yard, put the pretty pieces of tent in a pretty configuration, and took an action shot.
Then, put those stake thingies into the ground so our tornado force backyard winds wouldn’t blow our beautiful new tent away. Also, put those super light pole thingies into the area where the pole thingies go. If you wanted a real review, I’m so sorry, you’re just not going to see that here. hah.
After pitching it, we opened it very slowly and let Bambi in so she could give two thumbs up (which she did, luckily, because if she didn’t give it two thumbs up, then we would have sent it back immediately). If you wanted a real how to pitch a Hilleberg Keron tent, then you should watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kCnvaOZ8Tc
As far as I’m concerned once we’ve done a backyard camping test run, our next place to camp will be the Arctic. Back yard to Arctic. Reasonable.
