Inflatable tents
« on: June 29, 2010, 08:59:33 AM »
On our numerous camping trips and while trying to put the world to rights after booze, we've  often ended up talking about how to make the camping experience better...one of our ideas is an inflatable tent...,discussing one way valves etc, so  that if a hole happened would mean only 1 section would go down

Anyway...apparently there will be such things soon

We actually saw a real live inflatable tent being used by a dutch family last week, it looked good...altho not as good as a tin foil one!  which incidenlty come in very useful as fancy dress costumes!   Watch out on facebook for photographic proof!

One day an inflatable boy is in his inflatable school, when his inflatable teacher blames him for another inflatable students rude noises. He is sent to the inflatable headmaster, after a long telling off from the inflatable headmaster the inflatable boy has had enough. He pulls out a pin and sticks it in the inflatable headmaster. He then runs out, just as he is leaving he thinks 'I hate school' and sticks the pin in his inflatable school. When he gets back to his inflatable house he runs up the inflatable stairs and straight into his inflatable bedroom. Thinking of what he has done the boy has had enough, he can't bear to face the consequences and proceeds to stick the pin in himself.

The next day the inflatable boy awakes in the inflatable hospital, lying in the next inflatable bed is the inflatable headmaster. And with a disappointed look on his face the headmaster turns and says 'Son, not only have you let me down, you've let the school down and you've let yourself down'

It's the cost per use you have to think of. Years and years of holidays in a tent you love, v a handful of trips to a BB.  I'd vote for the tent. I have the tent of my dreams, although I did wait for it to come up on eBay, and selling some stuff to pay for it. It is worth it though  ;D

It's not so much the tent of my dreams that is my quest - it's the campsite of my dreams !
I've narrowed it down though, I now know what I don't like ...
