It all started with a mission to get the family out on a camping excursion this summer. Then one thing lead to another, as things do while searching on the interweb, and before you know it, I was sucked into the world of bell tents. We all know there are services that offer rentals of these pitched canvas tents but what I’m really juiced about is the idea of owning one. With mild California temperatures, there’s really no reason why there shouldn’t be a bell tent pitched in our backyard all year round. How fun would that be?!
