View Full Version : How big is a ParaTipi?

Though I'd post some pics in case anyone was curious...


Liefie feeling proud of her new-found tent pitching skills /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif For scale, she's 5'6" - same size as Mel (but better figure IMO! /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif )


To show the unusual profile of the ParaTipi. You can just see Liefie inside, that's how sheer the material is - which is a real benefit from inside because of the light transmission, even though it's Coyote Brown.

This is me (6'1") inside, head toward low end, to demonstrate the roominess and light levels. Behind me you can see the XTL on top of my Zulu. Photo taken by Liefie also inside the tent, so there's a lot of room 'behind the lens' here.


Hope this helps someone.

All the best, Ian

Well Done!

Dave, it's a South African Western Cape cabernet shiraz /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Also in shot is Pringles, hummus with red peppers and Boursin (french soft cheese with garlic); we'd already finished the crackers with some of the Boursin and the smoked salmon...

You can also see a coffee-table softback book about Cape Town (planning the wedding atop Table Mountain /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif ) and good ol' Scrabble. I-pod and portable speakers behind the wine glass pumping out some smoochy tunes. Wonderful evening, just chilling by the riverbank outside my apartment (http://forums.kifaru.net/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Board=13&Number=105995&Searchpage=4&Main=9647&Words=Brotzie&topic=0&Search=true#Post105995). I suspect I may not be your average Kifaru user... /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif
