There is literally no excuse for you to not be sleeping in a tent tonight. You have a tent, just do it. Post your set ups.
Texas is too warm to warrant the extra weight of a tent, I just sleep under the stars for the entire year I camp.
I just use related to protect against dew
You need a better sleeping bag if you think it gets cold at night here, and bugs aren't a problem if you pick your spot intelligently and I also live in San Antonio.
Just bought this for 20 bucks in super sale at some shit gabe bros Coleman is the shit
I trained my dog to tent sleeping inside. Just because you set up a tent inside doesn't mean you're a flaming faggot that spent a bunch of money on shit you'll never use because you're afraid to go outside and meet people.
This basically what I use. I've slept along the freeway several times, just behind the tree line. Hundreds, if not thousands of people passing by that never notice me there because their focus is on the road. Its amazingly freeing to just throw down a bed roll anywhere and sleep.

Marmot Limelite 3P
Osprey Volt 75 Liter. My Marmot fits very well in it.
hey watch your fucking mouth. and work on your stinky attitude while you're at it, fucken loser
Pretty rude bro. I don't appreciate that comment
That just sounds retarded. Do you even know how physics works? Cause it sure doesn't seem that way.
I'm not wasting my time building that, just so I can lay in my hammock indoors.
no wonder why every one says 4chan is shit. It is full of autistic man childs who clearly never go out, shit talk what ever any one posts, acts like a retard when they find out a woman is in the topic.
fuck 4chan, waste of time, only thing good that comes out of it is letting me know how retarded most of you are.
If the area I'm camping in has a bug infestation I fold my 8'x8' tent so that it's 4'x8' and sleep on it that way. But I really don't worry much about them, snakes are more dangerous but they tend to stay away.
I have a job at a department store that pays 8 an hour and I live at home with my parents you are one dence mother fucker
Not having poles craved out of solid granite externally reinforced with platinum
I camp /in/ my friend's basement most weekends. It's fine during summer, but during winter it's colder than fishcunts down there. I sleep in my 20º bag on a cot, but when it's really frigid I have my fleece bag inside as an inner layer. It's glorious but getting up in the morning is horrible
*que X-Files theme song*
Also those storage cabinets on the right are from Walmart.
>sleeping on the cold ground like a savage
>not sleeping in a warm cot off the ground like a civilized person
What year do you live in
Yup, he did. I know because I was there. A lot of us were there. I rubbed most of your kitchen utensils on my lipschitz and also a number of your children's underwear may have been handed away to various anons as door prizes.
I went to the one on Harry Wurzbach and Rittiman, I was probably being a bit less than truthful when I said $10 since I haven't been there in years now but you can call them for yourself if you want to check the price
I'd buy some Texas land in bumfuck nowhere. Cheap land, like 40k for 100 acres. Go out there every weekend and start building a small cabin. Use this cot thing to camp there while I'm working. Building the foundation, frame, etc. Finally get the walls up and some solar led lights for the inside. Setup a large tank to capture rain water, setup a small filtration system. Maybe just pony up the cash to drill a well for water. Propane powered fridge. Bring ice for the first day while the fridge is cooling down, because let's face it propane fridges take a while to get cool. Maybe a yeti cooler, would be worth it to stay there for a few days. Then transfer everything over to the fridge. Make an outhouse that uses saw dust to cover the poop. Let the poop sit for a few months and breakdown, have some nice fertile soil to build a garden in the back and get some rich green grass growing around the place. Blamo now I have a nice getaway spot, all thanks to this cot/camper. Thank you based Cabela.
It is impossible to not sleep for 4 days and to stay sane.
If you are not eating your own arm, you have slept in the past 100 hours. You may not have fall unconscious, but you have slept.
You may had too few, too superficial sleep, but you slept.
I lost interest in it when I got a little older. Realized I like my bed and my cable a lot. I need somebody to go with if I do it. My dad and I used to do some fishing trips and set up the tent right by the river in Wisconsin, that was fun. But I was probably like 10. At this point, I would like to get a weekend fishing trip going, either Lake Okechobee or up north like St. John's river. Rent a boat, and probably just get a hotel room. I need to convince my bro to go with when he has some time off work and school. He is my only fishin' buddy, and I just recently got him interested in it.
If I could get my little bro into it, I would grab a cheap tent and a lantern. But I don't know if he would be into it. I'm not sure about camping in FL either. I'd have to go up north or do it when the weather is cool enough to not cook in the tent and get eaten by bugs.
I was just looking for fishing threads somewhere...
But I do enjoy my hot showers. I would never do any prepping or shit like that. I always said if the world goes to hell, I'm gonna buy a bunch of heroin and OD as soon as my cable stops working.
+1 for fishing
I hear ya. Bug-out bags are a joke too, nothing is ever gonna happen. Earth will die in a few billion years anyway, just enjoy your life until then.
Nothing wrong with being prepare anon
I dont have a bob because short of having a fallout shelter where i live is a survivalists wet dream, but i keep a sleepingbag, a stove, food and water and a bag with basic kit (torch, firelighting, first aid etc.) in my car.
When you live somewhere where a road blockage in the wrong place is at best a 4 hour long detour it pays to be ready
I'm still transitioning.
Would you like to come over some time?
I have model trains, imitation crab meat, and a nice fruit plate...
>tension cable on the top despite it doing nothing
Umm anon when you lay in the hammock the forces are pulling the the posts inwards. If you wanted to use tension cables you should attach them to the top down to the base where it would actually provide a use
Moving the middle of next month and sold all my furniture. Will be moving again for training and then again after that. So indoor camping!
Just got a Marmot Sawtooth on sale for $170 CAN
Debating on either Thermarest All Season or Exterm Max. Thoughts?
I'm digging the comfiness but need a mat.
Texas Gulf Coast here. Everything bites, pricks, or stings. I don't care how humid it gets and how hot it is at night 8 months out of the year, I'm not playing host for the biggest mosquito party in a ten mile radius just to save less than five pounds weight from my pack.
