You could seek all this good input for just your own benefit, but it’s all the better when shared with the significant others in your life.
Tent campers give all sorts of reasons why they like outdoor living. It’s a return to a simpler life or a simple change of pace. It’s a challenge of self-sufficiency, or a get-together with friends.
Some try to define it in more cerebral terms, like filling the voids in life with beauty or serenity, freedom or space, but it all comes down to feeling good because that’s what camping does for you.
Different tent designs suit different applications. Which style you eventually buy will depend to a large extent on how you want to use the tent, but certain considerations are common to all. These can be used as a starting point in your search for shelter, and as a later basis for comparing individual camping tents.
