Sunday Morning Links: The Tree Tent Edition

Why would one want to place a tent in a tree? Because, it minimizes your footprint in the forest eco system.

Forests ARE our future… and to sustain this future forests need to be used for more than just harvesting timber during their lifetimes. Research, conservation, work, play and retreat are all important activities that can be enjoyed as part of the forests cycle. To facilitate this time the Tree Tents offer a comfortable and low impact inclusion into the woodland at any time of year.

Tree Tents are lightweight, hybrid aluminium and steam bent, green ash static airframes. They enable minimal impact living in the trees. The spherical structure is encompassed by a 16oz / 455gsm rot and waterproofed 100% cotton canvas tailoured by The Lindstrand hot air balloon factory famed for their earth and space bound Technical fabric structures, airships and balloon projects.

Oh, those treehuggers, what will they think of next.

Imagine a goofy treehugger smoking, getting high forgetting he is hanging from a tree when he needs to take a leak in the middle of the night…

    ROTFLMAO! I’m afraid my camping days are long behind me. I’ll take a pass from hanfing from trees. I understand that our ancesters use to hang from trees.

    Thanks for the link, Steve.

    • steve November 25, 2012 at 10:59 am

      These people who are camping in trees, are to put it mildly, insane.

  • LibertyAtStake November 25, 2012 at 10:37 am

    To further elaborate on the post you were so kind to link to …. Clapper, Meh.

    I find it hard to believe that the liberals, beyond a few loons that will give up when luxuries are missed, would do that. However, I can see them trying to make others do it.

    Thanks for the link sir!

    • steve November 25, 2012 at 11:54 am

      Yep, you never see an ultra wealthy lib giving up their private jets or Malibu estates. But they are down with us average Joe’s consigned to mass transit. For our own good, of course.

  • John Carey November 25, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    I can see it now…I saw the space craft in the woods hovering in the trees… Thanks for the link my friend.

    • steve November 25, 2012 at 2:55 pm

      Ha! Or if the hippy treehugger was particularly unkempt, “I saw Sasquatch climbing out of his spaceship in the woods!”

  • 5etester November 25, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    How much land had to be cleared to grow that cotton? How much water was used to grow it? We certainly wouldn’t want to impact the earth in any way with our happy face tents now, would we?

    • steve November 25, 2012 at 2:56 pm

      And they aren’t even using ‘reclaimed’ wood either. These people have grasp of reality.

  • LD Jackson November 25, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    The best way I can think of to describe trying to camp up in the trees is “ignorance gone to seed”. Thanks for the link, Steve.

    • steve November 25, 2012 at 9:13 pm

      “ignorance gone to seed”

      I like it…

  • KingShamus November 25, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    But what about the stress they’re putting on the trees by making these gentle living creatures carry human weight, maaaaaaaaan?

    Great stuff, Steve. Thanks for the linkage.

    • steve November 26, 2012 at 5:56 am

      This will be what the ‘researchers’ will ‘discover’ next. You are always ahead of the curve.

  • Bunkerville November 26, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Thanks again..and oh the good old days. Thanks for memories, I had almost forgotten.

    • steve November 26, 2012 at 6:36 pm

      No problem-o!

  • J November 26, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Put the fire IN the tent…Brilliant!

    • steve November 26, 2012 at 6:36 pm

      Good eye!

  • Zilla November 29, 2012 at 9:09 am

    That thing looks like a huge PITA to put together and hang! I don’t think any stoner tree humpers would be up to to the task, and it probably hurts the poor trees anyway.
    Thanks for the linky!
