Canvas wall tents rule
Q: Why do you prefer canvas wall tents?
A: “The west wasn’t won in a flimsy nylon tent,” said the man.
Q: So you’re saying canvas wall tents are better than flimsy nylon tents?
A: “Yes. Canvas wall tents are more sturdy, reliable and comfortable than any nylon tent. Period. Plus, why would i ever want to camp in a flimsy, uncomfortable squat nylon tent? I like to enjoy myself and sleep comfortably when i camp. Don’t you??”
Q: But nylon tents must be good for something, right?
A: “Yes, they’re good for backyard camping for children…. But i’ll tell you what – if your kids want to grow up to be real campers, but ’em in a canvas wall tent or a range tee pee in the backyard. They’ll never go back.”
Q: Ok. So what can you do in a canvas tent that you can’t do in a nylon tent?
A: “Woah, fella. You sure you want to go there? Okay then…You can actually stand up in a canvas tent, you can fire up a stove for warmth and cook in a canvas tent, you can live in a canvas tent for weeks comfortably, you can camp in the summer, fall, winter or spring in a canvas tent, you can make camp for hunting or fishing in a canvas tent. Hey, you ever tried to crouch down in a flimsy nylon tent and gut a fish? How about play cards at a folding table with your buddies? Hmmm???”
