John, et al.
I just received my Campmor "Holiday 94" catalog. Campmor has a 10% discount
for scout troops. (Campmor, PO Box 700-W, Saddle River, NJ 07458-0700. For
free catalog: 800-230-2151)
Timberline versus Outfitter price at Campmor:
2-person 1-door: Timberline $99.99 (7 lbs)
Alpine $149.99 (7 1/2 lbs)
Outfitter $209.99 (8 1/2 lbs)
4-person 1-door: Timberline $149.99 (9 lbs)
Alpine $199.99 (10 lbs)
Outfitter $279.99 (11 lbs)
Our troop prefers the Timberlines, especially the 2-man; Scouts seem to go to
sleep earlier with only two per tent.
We try to buy ours at the Eureka Camping Company in Binghamton, NY, during
the first weekend in March; that's their "March Madness Sale," and the prices
are terrific. I bought my 2-man, 4-man, and pack there and paid $80 or less
for each of them.
