ya man, scratched the rtt idea. Amazon the best place to get the Kamp-rite?
I got mine from Bass Pro.. but check out Academy. Last time I was in there they had one (oversized model) and it was cheaper than you could get it online. Don't remember exact prices but it was significantly cheaper.
Big Agnes Deluxe Sleeping Giant pillow arrived today. Damn I love Amazon!
Sets up fast and its actually pretty soft.. not bad. Overall I'd give it a 6 as a pillow and a 10 as a camp pillow. Blows away the Thermarest and REI brand camp pillows I have.
After a couple bad experiences with my neck knotting up I no longer use my "camp pillow". My regular huge sucker makes the trip every time. I think my old one was a REI that was the size of a shoe
Yeah I usually drag a full sized ones as well.
I picked up a BRAND NEW one - used once off of ebay. $50. I think the guy said, "Fuck that! I buying a Roof Top Tent!!!"
I find that the longer I live the flatter pillow I use. If I live much longer I'll be able to use a sock!
best I found.. 269, no tax, free shipping.. Bass PRO was $299 (for the double!)
damn, good deal! 180 new.
There you go!!!
^ Really means - "I'm getting a RTT!!!" rofl
Probably so! I think I've seen two RTT's in town. One was on a SUPER nice old Land Rover 110. Looked like it just got back from Africa.. probably never seen dirt though.
Sounds like that 109 I spotted in DV. I know he's waxed that one more than he even drove it! If I had to guess, I would say the guy driving it (in his Safari Uniform) probably parked it in his 20 car subterranean garage!!!
That what I meant, 109. Neat looking rig.. I'm sure the guy driving it was a DB. Probably owned a lime green Vette as well.
I like those 109's - and how did I know you saw a 109? The real question is, If we bought one, would we be assholes?
j/k 'cause we're already assholes!!!
Well it looked like the one you mentioned and I looked up. Seems the 110 is the newer body style??
110 -- not bad looking
109 -- freaking cool!!
The one I saw was a dark blue or green though.
Right - 110 coil springs too. 109 leafs. It was funny, the guy imported it from Scotland. One of the things he was telling me was that the body had no rust. I hope not 'cause the body's are aluminum!!!!
They are cool looking!!!
I figured I'd see a photo of it here http://www.texasrovers.com/e107_plugins/sgallery/gallery.php?view.63.1.1 I see a 109 but its no where near as nice as the one I saw... not a great pic though. Plus I thought it was darker in color.
Safari (dual panel) roof!
Come on guys really...

.. ok.. back to our regularly scheduled thread.
Portable genny will be here tomorrow. Now I'm looking at AC options for a tent. Someone on CL is selling a tall portable one.. http://austin.craigslist.org/app/2854287329.html Figure I could set it under the rainfly with the hose poking out the back. But the damn thing is HUGE! 75 pounds, 30x18x20 or something. A quick search and it seems that all the "portable" style AC units, even the 5000 BTU ones are 70+ pounds and 25-30" tall. I need to do some size comparisons with a standard compact window unit. The upside to one of those portable ones is that I could simply set the thing inside the Big Agnes tent and run the hose out the back door. I guess I have a few months to decide yet.
