    Low chair for sale at rally.

    There was a vendor at the rally selling a low camp chair, it had two legs, and your feet provided the third leg.

    You could rock in it, and it folded very small.

    I think they were $69.

    I didn't get one, but now I'm thinking they were a good deal.

    Anybody know what they were called, or where I can order one?

    ok... the average age of this group is closer to the 'senior' side and with a Scotch in one hand and a fine cigar in the other this said occupant proceeds to stand. Do you move your feet in to balance your body for this pending rise, likely disrupting the balance previously enjoyed? I'm thinking a drop forward to the knees and build from there. Interesting concept though but I too want to be there just to watch. I also notice that the website pictures seem to be marketing to the twentysomethings who appear to be in pretty good shape..... nuf said - Bob

    So in this situation, scotch and cigar, why would you want to stand?

    It also has a max weight capacity of 250lbs.

    Considering a lot of people poo poo a Kermit bacuse they are "hard to get out of" I can't imagine this one catching on.

    I saw that weight restriction and, in my mind's eye, looked around the usual rally site..... not many of those chairs would find a home At least you could roll out of a Kermit whereas this chair might provide more awkward moments.

    Holly's right about that pee break but, on second thought, there seems to be enough room to hang some sort of container on the front and.... ok, too much info

    I say arrive at the rally.... go to Walmart.... spent $10 for a modest armed chair and then give it away after the rally. - Bob

    Also carried at REI...

    I'm wishing I had picked one up. Nice and compact.

    Give it away? I'm still packing and using my $4.98 Watkins Glen Wally World chair from the 2004 Finger Lakes Rally. That chair looks dangerous in certain situations....
