Earthshine, I love that; "Kamptoberfest"! We did that in Oregon last month and had a great time.

Jax - it is awfully hard to get motivated when it is raining :(

I've seen those on the web (babyinabag / grobag / sleephuggers), but I've never talked to anyone who's tried to use them camping. I suppose they'd work?

Melynda - we have some friends who rent the cabins in the winter and really like them. They say it's great to go play in the snow and be able to come back inside a nice, warm cabin.

That's a good idea, Heath - we pack those stainless steel marshmallow forks, so I'll have to give that a try.

You can try, but the problem is the mold gets between the nylon and the waterproofing, causing it to separate. The manufacturer should have some cleaning recommendations on their website (i.e. http://www.eurekatent.com/tent_care.aspx) or in the instructions that came with the tent. You can go a bit further than the typical manufacturer's instructions by soaking the moldy area in a mild solution of bleach, or Lysol, and water. You will need to repeat soaking in the solution, followed by a thorough rinsing in fresh water, several times. Good luck!

Thanks, Caroline. We have used one of those pop-up canopies, on a few summer camping trips, for some shade over the picnic table and it also came in handy during a small train shower in Oregon, this fall. We do not use it much, but it sure is handy when you need it.

VE - that's the price you pay for staying hip and current.
