it's just my wife, daughter and me. THEY are the ones who have to worry! LOL
Anyway, GREAT replies here! Much appreciated! I couldn't find some of the Eureka models you all mentioned, but I DID get the drift. I went with the Eureka Dome 4XT with vestibule...$140 from Campmor.com
bought Coleman air beds last night (hey, I'm getting OLD) and now need a couple sleeping bags.
ALSO, let's hear some of your best, proven camping tips.
