  • New tent

    cottent 001.jpgWell today I set up my new tent that my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter bought me. Just because they love me. It is a six man Colman instant up tent. I went and bought a cot to go with it. Because I love me. Now that I have it set up in the house, I can't get it out.

                You look quite comfortable on the cot. Just tell your doc that it's better than a hotel, and less stressful.

                      I was gonna ask if you planned on getting a self inflating pad to put on that cot. From all accounts doing so just about makes a more comfortable bed than what you have at home.

                        Yes I have a 4" self inflating. Its over 30" wide. I will be putting a soft Quilt over that, then sheets, and blankets, and heated blanket if needed.

                            When you said the time of set up I was thinking of Tim Allen Tool Time Guy

                            He said it took him 20 min to mow the yard, till he put 350 motor in lawntractor

                            now he mowed it in 7 min.

                            I have had my Mini Mate for a month only set it up a few times but
                            not as fast as the video. Question, how does a fat guy, keep from losing
                            his pants, putting in the Top poles in a Mini Mate. lol lol lol
