    Yep seen those suckers on tv. Think the cold would kill them off. Just seems to make them bigger.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Yeah it was pretty awesome. I had some chicken cooking in it. All the pix are in Southern OR besides the one I have Mt. Shasta behind. That was in Northern CA...

    Thanks man! I love my FSR...

    Yes that's Crater Lake. I camped at the Union Creek Canpground which was about 20 mins away from Crater Lake. Very spacious sites and next to the river. There are a few campgrounds around Crater Lake area. I've heard about the campgrounds near or at Diamond Lake but didn't get a chance to reserve a spot. There's also a lot of dispersed camping around that area. Just need to look around...

    FWB, yes, I'm from BPL, don't visit bping forums much, same stuff. I did get a Duplex to use with the new pup, easy set up, plenty of room when bping. Got a canvas Kirkham Springbar tent for serious car camping, but still prefer a smaller and easier to set up nylon type tent for car camping. Was in the Caribou Wilderness here in N Kalifornia last Friday night with the pup, some snow there still, used the Zpacks Duplex there.

    Very cool! I've had a double rainbow for many years for backpacking and there's a few things I find lacking in it. I've also been using a RTT and there's a lot I don't like about that too. I have a zpacks pack and have been eyeballing that duplex for some time and thinking to consolidate to it.

    Beautiful wilderness, beautiful pup.

    Be well,
    B.

    Thank you. The RTT are expensive, Duplex was pricey, but a fraction of the price of a RTT. If shat hits the fan, I can leave a tent behind and be gone or if I want to take the truck for a ride. I was able to use the stakes and one pole from my Solplex to cut the cost of the Duplex. Saving the Solplex in case I go into the back country of a Park with a group where I can't take a dog.
    I had a TT floorless Squall, sold it, too much condensation at times, maybe a solid floor would have helped instead of a polycryo gc.

    Floor does not help, heavy condensation is by far the biggest problem on the double rainbow.

    I love my Contrail. The only time I very have an issue with condensation was on the very first trip. Pear Lake in a nearly constant rain setting up on Granite. I've since learned how to set the TT up to both block rain and still vent moisture. My only complaint is that it has a long foot print making off-trail camp sites a bit more difficult to find.

    Maybe they called it the double rainbow because with a good, well positioned headlamp you can produce one inside the tent.

    Horger - can you tell me who makes that table that looks like it folds up and fits into a shirt pocket? The one with the paper towels and coffee mugs hanging on it... That looks either really cool, or a rube-goldberg disaster. How do you like it and how small it it when closed for travel?
    Thanks!
