Big Agnes Emerald Mountain Tent Arrives. It's Hot And So Is The Tent!

My New Home Arrived Today In A Small UPS Box


I chose a three person, three season tent called the Emerald Mountain, made by a company with the unlikely name of
Big Agnes. As with most tents the three person rating means the three people best be real comfortable together. Lots of legroom to stretch though, ample room for gear, and very highly rated by actual users. What else would you expect from Big Agnes?
The pic above shows the inner mesh fabic before the rain fly is put on. Three season?


Typically a tent is put up at dusk and taken down in the morning. Mid-afternoon Texas July makes it a most hot prospect and turns the tent into an oven. For me 95 degrees usually beats 15 degrees.
Striving for a target date to leave on the 26th or 27th. We shall see.
