Mids rock
Can't disagree more with some comments on pyramids being somewhat limited in space and comfort or specialized in weather-worthiness and/or lightweight at the expense of anything else. Pyrami...

Re: ideal sized mid for 2?

Don't forget that there's more than humans. There are other beings and they live there. It's fine that we go through the place, it's also ours, but we're guests in someone else&...
