      Now, that is cool! Somehow, I have missed seeing/hearing about this
      idea/concept before...

      And, it gets better! No condensation! Condensation, dew, wind-blown
      rain/snow, some additonal warmth. The *only* draw back is the lack of
      a full view; but, it's always dark when I crawl in and dark when I get
      up and struggle to find coffee.

      Are there pics...? I will go searching...


      Happy Trails,
