    Need to be in Meridian at 07:30 Monday and wondering if there are recommended car camping spots within 45 minutes. Would love natural beauty but would settle for safe and quiet. Thanks.

    I think they carried the ATK under the BD brand this season. Looking forward to the new addition.
    Good time to buy; good time to hold cash. Confusing.

    Mountainsmith Morrison EVO 4

    Anyone have any thoughts on this tent? Or just on Mountainsmith tents in general. I have a good deal on it but want to make sure it's suited for car camping.
