It's a you and me house

"Do we have to put the tent up today?" This is my husband still at work and not feeling at all into my idea of doing a practice run on the new tent. We're going camping this weekend and I just don't want to be those idiots who show up and look like idiots. But it's not worth fighting about so I said no, we don't have to do it today but we have to do it before we leave so we know what the hell we're doing before we get there. Then I thought about it for a minute and decide to try it myself. And damn if I'm not the most awesome woman in the world and put the tent up all by myself, even the parts that said to use 2 people! I tried to use Mia for one of those parts but she's not tall enough so I rigged it alone. I'm pretty proud of myself. I haven't yet tried to fold it all back up and get it into the carrying case though. I think that might be harder.

If it's an Eddie Bauer tent that is our tent but minus the screen room on the front. Hee hee. Glad you got it up alone. Girl Power.

yep, it's always harder to not take down, but fit it in anything after taking down! my advise - take a much bigger case than the one it came with ...
