We acquired an (at least) 40 year-old tent and I decided to camp out in it to give it a try. Most of my camping is with modern tents, so this one was a bit different from what I'm used to. They are durable I can say that for sure, but also quite heavy haha. Anyways, crazy neighbor came along on this trip in the yard (he was helping with the house and joined in for the video)

    Canvas tents are a lot more pleasant to sleep in, at least if it's not raining (and there are ways to waterproof them), but yeah, they're freaking heavy. Canvas gives you better privacy, better wind resistance, they're less drafty, etc. After some bad experience with dome tents in wind, I went back to a canvas a-frame tent for several years until I genuinely needed something larger. Then I got a non-dome cabin tent. I truly despise dome tents. I have seen what wind does do them and I will never buy another tent that doesn't rely on the stakes for structural support, as those that don't tend to curl up at the edges, rip out their stakes in wind, and go flying away all in one piece. I'd rather my tent collapse than fly away.

    Nice 40 year old tent I'm thinking that's ancient then realised the film madmax 2 I watched before settling down in bed to watch your video was also 40 years old. Wow time flys. I think we had a tent similar when going family camping years ago, weighed about the same as a small car but good solid tent. Loved crazy neighbour table. Cheers Steve from England.

    I like the stealth camping videos because sometimes you have to because of the laws. Sometimes you just want to sleep outside but, you don't want have to go 10-20 miles away to do it. This gives me ideas of what I can do.

    That tent is exactly the same age as I am if we only go by the papers date. My body grows older yet my mind is still that of a child... It feels crazy that, what feels like, just yesterday I was in primary school. WHOOSH! now my body is 40... Its terrifying how fast time goes by.
    I wonder if I'll live to see 60 or 70. Most people assume they will see old age but actually only a percentage do.
