    Wow, that's 6.4 lbs! This really needs some weight reduction strategy. That doesn't even include the tarp! Maybe there's some way to attach wheels to it and travois it behind!

    I'll definitely look into that when I think I might have enough experience, but holy cow, thanks for the link anyway. The reviews there are incredibly in-depth and thorough. Awesome resource!

    I use BBGT reviews all the time. Didn't realize I could volunteer. At the very least, I'll be submitting some owner reviews!
