Outstanding Tents by FieldCandy

I’m off of work next week, so Dave and I have been playing with (cheap) trip ideas. We’re thinking about going north of Duluth, MN and camp along Lake Superior. How cool would it be to spend the nights in one of these stylish tents by FieldCandy! (I’d like to sleep between the book pages, please.)

There are some amazing water falls along the North Shore of Lake Superior and the landscape up there is supposed to be breathtaking. I’ve never been before. Have you?

The idea of this trip has had us hyped, but due to last week’s severe floodings up North, we may have to go back to the drawing board. We’ll make a decision today.

What are your plans for the summer and what’s your traveling style? Do you prefer a comfy hotel or resort over camping? Would you choose wild nature (I’m a little terrified of the black bears up there), a sandy beach or maybe a culturally rich vacation in the city? I’d love to hear! (I think my perfect vacation would be a combination of all three, including plenty of time! :))

    Love the tents! I used to camp all the time growing up – we couldn’t afford much more for holidays. Great memories. And when I was grown up, I’d go back country hiking with a friend.

    My favourite summer trip is to a cottage on a lake where I can kayak and swim and wakeboard and water ski and also read on the dock. At the other end of the spectrum, the big city is ALWAYS calling too – even in a heat wave I still love NYC!

      Sandra, when I was growing up we did a lot of camping too, and I always loved the adventurous part about it. A summer cottage with a lake sounds terrific! I wish I knew how to kayak, wakeboard and water ski (all three look like so much fun!), but all I can do is swim :) Like you I also love to explore a big city (oh, NYC – how much I’d love to live there for a while!). We try to go down to Chicago as much as we can and I always long for the big city life! Thanks so much for sharing – I always love reading your comments :)

    Well, it’s winter here in Sydney so as much as I love the look of these tents, with the weather we’re having I’d much prefer to stay in a resort – I’ll save the camping for the summer weather!

    Charlie, oh no! I’m sorry to be taunting you! ;) A resort sounds perfect – maybe with a fireplace and some hot chocolate :) Stay warm!
