Santa Came Early
The first 3 of my presents are here and I couldn't wait until Christmas to play with them. I set up the tent in my living room. Anyone over 5'3" or 120 pounds would be crowded, but I'm small enough to fit comfortably with my pack at my feet. It's easy to set up and take down solo, and it's got a generous door on the side so I don't have to be a contortionist to get in and out. Even with the rainfly on I can peek out one of two windows to see what's happening outside. I can't wait to test it outdoors.
I rolled out the sleeping bag, crawled inside to test it, then rolled it up and stuffed it back in the compression sack. It took several minutes to figure out, but after I've done it a few times I think it will be easy.
I tried the new backpack on. The straps need adjusting. I don't think the chest strap is supposed to go across my boobs.
