When did you last camp with a canvass tent? 
Over the holidays, I was helping out my dad with some work in the garage when we came across the old canvass tent that we used to take with us camping when my brothers and I were younger. Of course, it was really rotten now and we had to throw it out. But finding that tent really brought a lot of fun memories camping as a kid. Does anyone of you still use a canvass tent when camping? When was the last time you ever slept in one?

I haven't gone tent camping at all since we purchased our Motorhome. But now that you mentioned it, I might consider buying one. I started camping in a tent when I was a kid. It wasn't a canvass one, but I'm sure that my kids will enjoy the experience.

Oh my goodness! That was such a long time ago. Haven't used one ever since my uncle, who was in the military, passed away. I remember back when we would go camping, he would bring one of these canvass military style tents. It was really huge and pretty warm inside. Guess the reason why I never really came around to buy and use one when I started buying my own camping gear was I remember how heavy it was and how difficult it was to set it up.

Last time I've stayed in one was during this retreat our church had two summers ago. But as far as just me camping with it goes, I can't really remember if I even slept in one.

You know, now that you mentioned it, I've never really gotten to experienced camping in a canvass tent. One of my kids have been asking about wanting to do some tent camping. I might actually get one for all of us to try out. Any suggestions on what to get?
