It costs more to buy less

Miniaturization comes with a bigger price. But I prefer not to think of my new tent as expensive but rather the same price as six nights in a cheap motel.
I just spent a nice time at the REI in Paramus, New Jersey. Ask for Alex, he was adorable and really knowledgeable when it came to camping equipment. Most of all, I trusted him a little more because he seemed to be trying to get me a good deal and some other guy there was not. Ask for Valerie when it comes to hiking shoes, she’s really all about the proper socks.
The tent is under 2 pounds and takes up very little space. It will take some getting used to though as I’m used to pitching a much larger tent.
