I don't but I did. I had many tents. The first one was canvas and could sleep 4 if you were squished together. It was square on the bottom had a big wooden pole in the middle, right in the middle holding it up. The next one I bought was a orange one made out of nylon I guess polyester maybe . It was big. I bought it for a cross-country trip.
Work my ass off in a factory for a year saved up my money and bought a 54 Plymouth Savoy. And drove around the country with a nest egg I had saved up.

Me and my wife thought about three of them throughout the years. We were camping out in Colorado. Our campsite was right on the edge of a cliff. The tent was literally 3 feet away from the straight drop off down to the road 50 feet below.

A windstorm came up when we were inside trying to sleep. This just wasn't any windstorm it was a big bad ass windstorm. The sides of the tent were violently flopping. I was afraid it was going to take off over the cliff

The big orange one I pitched in an insane person's backyard. His name was Jeff soberoff . He's in prison now for trying to poison the water supply with drugs. But this was long long long before that.
His parents had him committed. He was out in a few weeks. He carried around his father's Nazi sword.
This parents took me to their house and sat me down gave me a Shasta root beer. They wanted to know what was going on so I told them. We were having sex orgies. At his girlfriend's house his girlfriend's big brother was shooting up kids with God knows what.
We used to stay up till Dawn playing music having sex and bullshiting. I blew away the whole summer of 75 doing that. Then I said fuck this shit.

Oh man we have a throwable three person tent, it's great. Fuck trying to set up a tend while drunk and in 35°C sunny weather. Just throw that shit on the ground, tie it down and celebrate with more food and alcohol.

edit: Actually it's not really throwable per se but it's so fast and simple that a kid (or a very drunk adult) can set it up in like 2 minutes.

It can be hilarious to see drunk people at a festival set up tents the old-fashioned way. A lot of them just give up and fall asleep on top of the tent.

this makes me doubt the validity of the entire story.

Also yes we own one (1) tent

The first time we were at that festival we arrived at like 2 in the afternoon and immediately set up a table and chairs right next to our cars to have a few beers and take a rest. Of course we didn't have just a few beers and nobody remembered that we still need to find a camping spot and set up our tent until like 4 when we had already opened a bottle of vodka.

Now picture three drunk dudes setting up that specific tent for the first time in years, in the sun at about 30 to 35 °C, as their equally drunk female friends point at them and laugh at their ineptness. I'm sure it was hilarious but all I remember is suffering and misery.

We did get to jump into the festival's pool right after and have a few cold beers there though, possibly also smoke a joint beforehand, I'm not 100% sure how in which order it all went down. All I know is that jumping in that pool after getting cooked alive in the sun was pure, unspoiled bliss.

That's looks like a great place to have a good time
Was the picture of the camp taken at the start of the festival by any chance?

Unsure, I got it off of google.

it's true. The sword was long heavy. The blade had four sides each side being perhaps one half of an inch long . At its thickest point it may have been 1/2 inch thick. I forgot the name of the geometric shape. Like a squashed box. The blade was like four feet long and it was all about being heavy. If you swung that thing at somebody really hard it would go through anything arms legs torsos . It was made for stopping power. Also it being so long made it so you could get them before they got you.

You are correct for calling me on that though. I never even thought about it. Something gave me the idea it was a Nazi sword.

I'm not Stephen King but if I wanted to write fiction I could do just a little bit better than the summer of 75.

The tense they have today with their flexible poles that pitch in two minutes and a sturdy kick ass.
You know what would be nice though? A nice big tent like they have on the TV series M*A*S*H. That would be cool. The one of the swamp would be all right. The one that they use for the mess hall that would be neat to have that in my backyard.

I've been camping twice recently with my gf, but I've never owned a tent. We went for a week up in Scotland which was awesome

This Soboroff guy is quite a character.

http://www.clintonherald.com/archives/soboroff-to-face-probation-hearing/article_b1f219cb-a600-55d6-b444-fe45ab9de77d.html

Soboroff was arrested in November by Clinton County Sheriff’s deputies after he had made a posting to his Web site that he had procured 500 pounds of thorizine and was going to dump the drug into the city water tower to “calm the population down.” His trial took place March 10 and 11 in Clinton County District Court. The jury returned with a guilty verdict on March 11.

I'm pretty sure the scene where Radar comes into the O.R to say that Henry died is tied with being the saddest scene ever.
