    Instead, I actually found it on craigslist in Chicago. Paid the guy via Paypal. If I really like the Noah 9 then I'll keep it. Otherwise, I'll sell this bad boy and get the one I wanted- the Noah 12.

    Hi Don,

    No, but I have a ton of old tent poles laying around. I need to test this out before heading to the Iron Horse next month.

    I really can't wait to do some real ridin' with you guys again!

    +1, Sort of. When I want shade I don't go to my tent...I go to the Beer Garden!

    3. Kelty Tarp w/ Poles. (9' would work, but I'm going for the 12' for my 1.5 man tent)

    All at REI stores. Or you can get the jet boil from our friends at micatech.net. The case manufacturers.

    I am interested to hear/know the effect of hauling one super big folding chair sideways on the back of my bike. Just never tried it yet...

    +1.

    Should it get nasty fast with the parawing I just pull the poles out.

    When the blow is over I just put the poles back in and never need to adjust the lines.

    I will say that the wing is fine when most of the others are down.

    I had my parawing drop shipped to Spokane almost five years ago and with simple care it is still as good as new.

    Did I mention.

    NICE SCORE !

    I figure that it is going to cost me about $140 for a 12' noah, plus a couple poles, plus line, plus stakes... sure makes the Kelty Sunhshade look good for $160.

    EXCEPT>>>

    The tarp with poles weighs in at:

    3lbs & 5"x23'
    vs
    11 lbs & 6"x30"


    i problably should stop screwing around and just buy the damn thing.

    Looks like it will have good drainage

    (note to self . . . camp at the higher elevation)

    Shhhhh.

    Let everyone fight for shade. That'll leave the high ground for the folks that know how to camp.

    This could be one of those rallys where all the early arrivals "grab" the worst spots.

    ho ho!!! You beat me to that remark! We always try to get as close to the dance floor as we can so it that's where the trees are then we'll be there. If not look for us right near Rob -Bob

    I did that last year. Worked well on the LT's back seat but I scuff up the saddle bags a little. The draw string on the chairs bag flapped around around a ton. I ended up getting a Kermit chair for Xmas. Now, I'll just put it into the topcase along with my tent, sleeping bag, theramrest and cot.

    As for my pillow, I have a small buckwheat filled pillow that I strap to my back seat in a water proof bag. Feels just like sleeping at home!

    Over on the AdvRider board, they've had a number of threads devoted to this very topic. The overwhelming choice was a jetboil stove set up and an Aeropress coffee press.

    Thumbs up

    +1 on the Aeropress!! It makes the best coffee or espresso ever. The paper filter is the key and it keeps the coffee grounds where they belong.. None of that cowboy coffee stuff.......
