    I think you make an excellent point not only for the newbies, but experienced camino addicts and long distance hikers/campers as well. Two years ago I had decided to do a early spring (end of February through March) camino on the CF as a tune...

    I, too, love the Hubba Hubba tent. I used my one-person Hubba on my Appalachian Trail trek and it was as convenient and lightweight as could be. Survived many freezing nights in it while staying dry. Set up is super fast and plenty of room for...

    As someone who has way too many tents, I've discovered you can get really good tents retailed at major outlets in North America, Europe and Asia at the $300-$400 mark (watch for those sales!), that are very light but also durable. Plus tents in...

    Take a look at a jetboil (goggle search and you'll find almost every outdoor retailer has them or something similar). Quite light with Integrated cup/pot, stove and fuel. You can get a cheap coffee press for it. Also good for soups, stews...

    Quick two cents worth. Now is an excellent time to buy a quality tent at significant discounts as retailers try to get rid of inventory to bring out new models, while sales are lacking due to COVID. My criteria for a lightweight tent includes...

    Yes, this surprised me a bit too. I didn't expect ad hominem attacks on my motivation behind my initial post, but such is life in our brave new world. I do respect everyone's right to have their opinion and say, and I believe such shows...
