      Owner Review - Eureka Timberline 2 Tent - Dave Hjelmar

      Hi Dave

      Welcome. A fairly good first OR, with only a couple of specific small edits.
      You write well.

      However, a tent is a rather large (=expensive!) item, and I would hope to
      see a bit more about the tent construction and the interior. If you are
      going to include some pictures, reference to these would help enormously of
      course. (Me, I think pictures are well worth while.) Think of the reader:
      what else would he (she) like to know about the tent? If you need help with
      working out what else to put in, just yell.

      You need to fix up the metric bits of course. When you have done these, the
      edits, and maybe added a bit more description, could you REPOST to the this
      channel please. At the same time please put the full html version into the
      Tests / Owner Reviews folder on BGT as we need to see it too.

      EDIT: the 'Note' here is a trifle awkward. 'Note that' would be fine, or you
      could leave the word out.
      Comment: I fully agree with your concept of caring for your gear! The
      comments are well made.
