Thanks! Yeah it is a Tarptent. It's called the MoTrail. I love it. Really comfortable for 2 people incredibly easy to set up with either one or 2 trekking poles or of course you can get a pole from them that is the right height. Once Janine figured out the easier way to pitch it, it pitched perfectly practically every time. Best part is.. 4 stakes! Even in non freestanding areas (not slabs of pure granite of course) that certainly is not nearly as tricky to pull off as something that requires 6 or more stakes.
Never put off a backpacking trip for tomorrow, if you can do it today...
