Gear acquired

440Thanks to REI’s anniversary sale, I’ve now ordered the first of some of my big ticket items for this experiment, a tent.

I finally decided to buy a membership to REI a few months ago after I realized that it’s only a one time fee, and not something where you have to renew the card every year, which makes it by far one of the best deals out there for membership cards.

So this tent is normally $129.99, but thanks to the sale and a 20% off coupon for members, we picked it up for only $71.73.  Really not a bad price for a three man tent.

I also grabbed some more food to try out, a new camp chair that should be more comfortable when we’re car camping, and I’m upgrading to the Fitbit Charge HR, which I’ll review once it comes in and I’ve had a chance to use it. ┬áI’m looking forward to it.
