Taking a break from Facebook

Hey all,

I thought one or two of you rss subscribers might get this. After my friend Mark (no not valencia) described deactivating his facebook account I decided to take the plunge yesterday. Apparently all my stuff is still there and can be recreated.

Just taking a break from it. So please don't think I am blocking you or anything.

My Review of MSR Hubba Tent

Originally submitted at REI

The popular MSR Hubba tent offers 1 person 17 sq. ft. of space and weighs less than 3 lbs.—you get room to stretch out without weighing yourself down.

Great Single Person Tent!

Best Uses: Backpacking

Describe Yourself: Avid Adventurer

What Is Your Gear Style: Comfort Driven

This is a great tent. I first got interested it because a friend in a backpacking group had the tent. I was considering some other brands of one person tent. What is great about this tent is that the entrance is at the long side or the rectangle instead of on one of the short ends. This makes it much easier to get into and out of of. Also its free standing, does great in the wind, is very light and allows me to sit up in.
I am 6ft , 200lbs or so and I don't feel too cramped in this tent. Ofcourse my pack and boots have to remain in the vestibule.

I recently got back from a four nighter ( my second time using this tent). I only had some minor condensation at over 10,000 ft when it was extremely cold. However, everyone else's tent had condensation as well in fact even more so than mine.

I would buy this tent again in a heartbeat.
