If you’re not hardcore enough to camp without a portable shelter, but still want to let everyone else in the campsite know you’re different, perhaps you’d be interested in sleeping inside of your own personal tepee.
Design Within Reach — the store that sells you IKEA fixtures at a 5000% markup — recently added an honest-to-goodness canvas tepee to their catalog. The tepee is water-resistant with a mesh-woven floor and 16′ pine poles. It also looks like it would take you an insane amount of time to set up.
Be the talk of the backcountry campsite for just $1870. And be thankful … it was $2200. I’ll never complain about tent prices again.
