Some old memories from Chuck. Thanks for writing! In the summer of 1984 old Camden GF et self took the ferry over to Nova Scotia from Bar Harbor for week ride down SE shore and needed a lighter tent
Rolled up to the "factory" yard/field/parking lot with many white duck prototypes (I guess) pitched on platforms weathering
Some old stoner long haired type (that I still can/do identify with) came out of the "factory"
"Sure man, we can do that"
Rummaged around upstairs for the best factory second he could find, took an out of town czech and off we went
Great little tent, a bit wind sensitive butt near three season if pitched into wind
Floor coating getting a bit worn
Was visiting with a local (Tulsa) outfitter who was familiar with Moss Tents who said they were a bit diff in that the floor coating was outside which makes sense in that movement that might affect would be on the inside
