Well, we did it. After 8 years of using the trusty tent my parents bought for us, we have purchased a new tent. The tent my parents bought for us worked great for the two of us, but with adding Tyler, it has been pretty cramped.
Today was our day of information gathering. We went to 5 different stores across town looking over their selection. I was looking for a tent that would have more floor space, a higher ceiling (so I wouldn't have to crouch so much) and better ventilation. (Kansas camping can get pretty warm).
After our day of searching, we found the Columbia Bugaboo Dome Tent. It easily meets all of my requirements and even has lots of storage spots and handy little zippered spaces to store shoes! We would have bought it right there...but all they had left was the floor model. Luckily, I have a husband who didn't want to pay full price for a floor model and who also thinks of such crazy things as looking online (yes, I'll admit I was too tired to think of it myself)...and ultimately got us a much better deal! So, here it is...coming to us from Cabela's. I'm excited.
