Need help here.
My 10 year old and I have done some hiking in the past and we have done some car camping.
We are going to start moving into backpacking and I need to downsize the tent/shelter.
The issue- I have no issue with throwing up a poncho or sleeping with nothing over top of me. However, with a child, it is a little different, IMO.
Right now I have the Big Agnes Seedhouse 3 Tent in my cart at REI online, but at around 6lbs, it is a little on the heavy side.
Are there other lighter tents that would be better OR do I say heck with it, buy a tarp and show him the best way first.
Also- I live in Texas so outside of a couple months, it is pretty warm at night.
