    Score....

    Just scored a new tent, Baker tent that is!! The tent is made in Saskatchewan, the original company making tent for Bill Mason, it is 7x7 and made out of some really nice super tight(better than snow trekker IMO) cotton! It is in almost mint condition!! It will be great for the summer and shoulder season!! Not super light weight but not bad at all!! The price was right and it was right here in town!!

    Nice score! I have always liked the Baker style tent. Sounds like the price is right and better yet travel was short! Gotta love it.

            Indeed it was, but I'm most impress with the quality of the fabric!! We"ll see how it does on a real trip!! It is not as light as i wish but not bad, tent(lots of fabric in that tent with the sewn in floor and the 3 flaps!!) with the frame, the 2 awning poles and the pegs and the different stuff sacs weight in at 35lbs!! The frame on its own is about 13-15 lbs, that could be left at home and one could use ridge line in between 2 trees and prussic to tighten up and you would save lots f weight!!

                But if you're on the river it won't really matter.

                That's a lot better then a triple Cold Handle Fry Pan Score.

                        Really sweet score. I've dreamed about those for years. I never realized that maker has (screened?) windows in the back. Nice touch for ventilation. I agree about leaving the poles at home and just rigging a ridge line and guy-outs. A trucker's hitch should give you plenty of ooomf to hold up all that cotton.

                            That's nice with the floor and screen, does it have a stove jack?

                              Great score and right in town too! Nice. With your large group firebox under the awning, you'll be nice and toasty inside. Please take it on a trip soon. We all want to see that tent in action.
