Great camp, norge! Looks very authentic!!

What´s the name of the tent you use, is is "Tent, Arctic, 10-Man"? I guess the one I have (Tent, Hexagonal, Lightweight) is smaller!

Nice!

I just got me a brand new USGI Hexagon GP tent thats 18'x18', has the new stove, and everything it came with. Got it free but i havent seen it yet, just got to go pick it up. Hopefully its not too big a problem settin it up. Maybe my camp site will look as good as yours. I only will use it twice a yr as thats when i go to the machinegun shoot at Knob Creek range in Kentucky, me the wife and 3 daughters all camp there Thur threw Sun, we ALWAYS get rained on and have had some tents cave in during bad storms so im looking forward to a good strong tent.

Norge,

Awesome camp site, looks very authentic! I'm curious: what's the sign say in the front of your tent in the first pic?
