Yeah, I know...just thought I'd offer a lightweight suggestion. In fact, you can clip two hootchies together...they come fitted with press studs down each side...and put up something similar to the pup tent...just wouldn't have the closed ends. I've put 3 together in the past and made a monster hootchie. Laughing Laughing

Cheers, Vince

Vince,

I've used the tarp method myself to make a tent. Especially since unless its near the car I don't want to carry that 4 man tent that I got. Weights more then everything else I carry (but the food and water) combined. Shocked

'Mitri, a hootchie weighs only a few ounces...they are not even remotely heavy, but then again, they are designed for use by the military. The US military used to make a poncho (maybe still do, not sure) that did double duty as a hootchie. Heaviest part of a hootchie setup is the cords and pegs.

Yes a Hootchie or tarp doesn't weight much, but my 4 man tent is a commercial camping tent that weights 15 pounds or so I think. Shocked

Vince,

I think he means like a 2 man pup tent they are tents missing the bottom. Smile



Thing I'd be worried about is total weight, at 10-11 pounds its quite heavy. Shocked

Dimitri

Daniel, have a look at this thread mate. Should answer most of your questions and there is also a number of good links in there.

Packs and Frames - Any Suggestions

Dan,

I carry alot of weight too while hiking its just adding extra weight on top of that is alot. After all I do carry about 12.5 pounds of water alone (6 quarts or 1.5 Gal) at times. Shocked

As for the nick name some reason I think Bushy gave me it! (someone else may correct me on this if I'm wrong I've had CRS for too long to remember things like this) Very Happy

Dimitri
