    The price only hurts once.

    My old tent hurt every time I had to crawl in and out of it. Last weekend, it was nice to roll out of the sleeping bag, stand up, and then get dressed. Then, step into the garage area, where I kept my camp chair, sit down and put on boots.

    I got myself one of these just before last riding season. Used it several times. YES, it hurts when you hit that "BUY" button. Once. I've never put the ST in the garage because I love the luxurious vestibule. Sleeping bay is plenty spacious even when the wife meets me along the way. It is a big pack but I feel it's worth it. Life and a health issue is delaying this season but I can't wait to get it out again.

    For what it's worth, my $0.02, if you don't mind the large pack it is very worth it.

    Hope all is well, Jack


    (I was not able to send PM to you a while ago and had no other way to contact to check-in so it has been a while).
    Jack,
    I'm not sure that this is what you want for tearing down, every day. You might want to look at the Solo version of the same tent. Whenever you're riding this direction, stop by, and we'll put the tent up in the back yard, to see if you like it. I'll have it at Suches in a couple of weeks, and I'll have it at FerrySToc next month.

    The Solo would be a great alternative for a single person.
    I had the Expedition II and now have the Atacama. Both great tents and the Atacama has some improvements over the Expedition II
    Despite its size, I always pitch it by myself. The initial expense paid for itself quite fast



    Cheers,
