Hi Kori, I'm with the Wanderers. We're in a great neighborhood on the 3:30 area. Some of my absolute favorite camps on our side of town are DeMenthe (mojitos, misters and great DJs), Cereal Camp--serving...well, you get it..., Nothing Butt Art, of course, Barbie Death Camp and village, Champagne Lou...

You know, I have used a Springbar tent for the last 6 years. All canvas. It holds up extremely well, does not allow any dust and is very roomy. I had the manufacturer see an exterior flap in the window to replace the interior flap so that when I opened it, the dust that had collected inside the mesh...

It's not necessarily a bad thing to camp by yourselves the first time or two or more. You will get out what you put on, generally speaking and will fit in where you should. Remember, you *make* friends. Seldom do you find them.
