    Winter Tent (hah!)

    Yeah I know. A tent. In a Hammock forum.
    Well, let's check the logic... maybe someone has recently converted to hammocks and needs funds for one of Stormcrow's awesome 900FP down contraptions. And maybe that person has a 4-season tent sitting forgotten and alone in the gear closet...

    Anyway, I might be doing a winter trip this year to a place without trees. Yes, crazy eh? Therefore I am looking for something along the lines of the Mountain Hardwear Trango 2, Marmot Thor 2, Exped Polaris, Hilleberg Jannu, Big Agnes String Ridge, etc, etc....

    A shot in the dark, I know.

    Let me know what you have!

    I like your thinking. Surely someone is ready to let go...

    I go to the ground in the winter and picked up a brand new/never out of the bag Golite Shangri-la 2 over on Backpackinglight for just over 100 beans. Cant wait to use it!

    Thanks for the tips and offers so far. Still looking for something more along the lines of a true, 4-season hardcore winter tent.
    Yeah, and expensive item for possibly only a couple of uses, but... I'm a gear junkie and you only live once, right?

    Thanks for the tips! I have been watching all those places. I prefer to keep my trade with people from the forums here as much as possible... good people around here.
