I think you'll have trouble beating that price anywhere. Keep in mind that you posted on a BPL forum, and that tent is pretty heavy in the BPL world. A good goal is 2lbs / person.
It's hard to resist the urge to blow cash up front, but I'm working on shelter setup 4 (tarp/hammock) now with probably $500 all together. I could have saved myself some money if I would have gone with a tarptent up front.
Check out our previous discussion on cheap, scout tough big 3.
Sounds like a great trip and great group. HYOH and have fun!
