Tarptent Contrail/ Pictures
I loved my Contrail on the JMT this past Summer but I also sold it. Bottom line Tarptent makes great tents. I will go back to them maybe on Protrail.

Why do you go backpacking
Tribal Fires, The Mountains, Physical Challenge, Remoteness, I get in the ZONE when I am on mile 13 which means I get into very deep thoughts and it is very FUN!
