Tents, Animals and New York

I have to thank my coworkers for providing me separately with great stories, both coincidentally relating to tents.

For any outdoor enthusiast, the thought of living in New York is probably one that doesn't come often due to the concrete jungle versus the lush mountainside. Yet, in September, it was no surprise to look up at the rooftops of New York's high rises and find glowing tents peeking through the skyline.

Thomas Stevevenson, an artist in Brooklyn, New York decided to make the most of underutilized rooftop space and create a camp site where you could disconnect from technology and the loud, fast paced life of the city. The space is made to be easy to move from rooftop to rooftop with a quick set up of just two hours.

Looks like the campsite will be traveling to other cities in the next year and will be in our hometown of San Francisco in the Spring! Who's in?? To find out more or sign up, visit the site:

Have to post this spot from Quechua tents, based in the Alpes region of Eastern France that pulls at your heart strings with it's "We all need warmth" tagline. See the spot here:
