    We came...
    We saw...
    We...well we took over the island;
    that's what we did.


    Fabulous camp site - on the point of our own little island with a magnificent view.


    We used the small tee-pee.
    Remember? - I wasn't sure if there would be enough space for the large one.


    A new ultra light silicone kitchen shelter.
    Notice? - we made pegs from wood that we found on the ground.

    Grand camp meals!
    Really luscious stuff.
    And, oh yes...there is my flag at the top of the pic resting from the wind.


    The island was gorgeous, inundated with huge boulders and these little
    caves here and there which would make excellent emergency shelters.


    View of our tee-pee from the bluff.


    We swam, canoed, cooked succulent meals, and more especially
    enjoyed being in the company of kindred spirits; soaking up the peace and quiet
    and refreshing the soul.

    Very beautiful and restful for sure. The rock out-croppings are kind of cool having little caves in them. Having an island to ones self is such a blessing in that you can be truly alone in enjoying nature. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the trees...
    You know...the ones we like to cut down.

    We had a bit more than a stretch of tarp when we went out to Killarney National Park. But it was such a beautiful day here in Ireland. Plenty of trees and rocks and sunshine. Killarney.jpg

    That looks like an Outwell tent - one that I would love to add to my nine tent inventory. The green tarp of course is our kitchen fly; we had a we-bit-of-rain, the tee-pee that we used was 15 feet by 15 feet, more than enough to stand up in and roll around at night.

    Really glad to see you on line Joseph.

    That's our Thermo Tent. The final tent is in production now so it may look a little different again. But its 7 meters in length total so plenty of living space.
    Really can't wait to get the new tent out into the woods, I'll be sure to share the photos with you guys.

    @Joseph Hadnett

    Right on - I forgot about that. Really looking forward to seeing those pics. I would be interested in hearing about the field trials too. On this side of the Lake I find that people are very narrow in terms of selection when I know that there are thousands of models on the market - new ones hitting the scene each day. I would be interested to see how your models stacks up.

    Most of our sales are to the US, I'm not worried about people not adapting to our design...unless you mean an actual lake, then I'd be very interested to see that lake :p

    We have a large glamping tent coming too. Though this one isn't insulated yet.

    It really is amazing what is available in terms of equipment today. I actually don't take any cash or a credit card when I visit the big outdoor stores (small ones for that matter) because there is always a new gadget or piece of equipment I just got to have. :)

    Have you manged to get away any where this summer? I have 26 days left and then it's get ready for the winter.

    We've been camping a few times. Or as we like to call it, "testing".
    Got pretty windy this day but it was worth it for the view.

    I don't know where you are but the place looks fabulous and so does that tent. :)

    We're in Kerry, the south west of Ireland. If you ever make it over here you really must go camping.

    There are some great photos in this thread :thumbsup:

    Looks like a fantastic tent, I'm sure it will be a real hit when it hits the market. Is the wooden platform part of the standard setup?

    I would love to camp by the ocean one day

    The wooden floor is part of our glamping tent. It has a large wooden frame and its on stilts too. As soon as we can I'll post more photos of it.
    Its available now, you can buy through our e-Store and we'll ship it to you :)

    @Joseph Hadnett - Looks mighty fine - like the size of a train car. I like big tents. Can you show a bit more? Nice to see you back on line - hope you had a fabulous summer.

    This is the largest one that I own - four season with stove jack.

    These tents look like you could hold a party in them. I have never owned something so large. I like my tents tiny as possible. If I did have one of these I could take my entire family and a group of friends. When you set up these large train car sized tents do you go with a group of campers? Use it for kitchen, sleep and entertainment space?
