The Daily Deal for Sunday, July 6, 2008
Camping season is in full swing, and that always gets my blood up for looking at the newest and best camping gear available. Although I don't tent camp any more, there was a time when I did pitch a tent in the woods at least once every camping season. There's just nothing which compares to tent camping. I've always liked to think that we tent campers are a special breed of outdoors people.
I recently ran across a gem of a deal on the Coleman 3-room Weathermaster tent. The good folks over at Campmor.com are offering this awesome cabin type tent for just $159.97 plus a shipping charge as low as $6.95. This great tent, which is able to sleep up to 8 adults, normally retails for $230. You can use the included hanging dividers to separate the interior of the tent into three rooms, and the tent comes factory prepared for inclement weather.
Large, light, and tight, is the way I describe a tent such as this. If you're in the market for a family camping tent which won't bust your budget, this is a great place to start. If you do find that this tent will fulfill your tent camping needs, might I also recommend that you purchase the ground moisture barrier and get yourself some extra metal tent stakes also. The moisture barrier will help to reduce the clammy feeling that can develop within a tent, and the metal tent stakes always worked better for me in a greater variety of soils and situations.
It's time to get yourself outfitted and get into the woods. There is much to do and learn in the great outdoors. Even if you just use it as an opportunity to "escape" from the daily grind for just a little while, I promise you that tent camping will give you a different perspective on the world. It's a perspective that most people, unfortunately, miss out on.
