Suspended Tents for Outdoors Fun

Getting closer to nature is my ultimate goal in life.

I hate crowded places, malls and pretty much everything that obligates me to stay inside. This is why I always search for ways to get back into nature and soak all the beauty in. And what is best for that? You’ve guest: tents.

I remember the first time I slept in a tent like it was yesterday. It wasn’t yesterday, it was a million years ago, but the image of that night will hunt me forever. I planned with a small group of friends to spend May 1st at the seaside, in a local region. The weather was very nice, so we thought about sleeping in a tent for one night. What’s the worst that can happen? (never say this unless you want to give God a new challenge).

After eating well and watching a rock band giving the loudest summer concert ever, we went to our tent. I must mention that this region was mostly destined to rock-ish and hippie people. So everyone was happy and cheerful until someone slept with the other’s girlfriend and things got rough. Or until someone drank too much and remembered that a friend owed him money. And things got rough again.

Aside from the fact that I had to put two blankets and a furred hoodie to stop shivering, in the middle of the night a drunk guy crashed over our tent. This happened exactly when an ambulance came to fix another guy after a fight with his friend.

Out of all this, the guy who came uninvited into our tent was the weirdest one.  Of course, at that time I knew nothing about Tentsile and their suspended tents. If so, I would have slept like a queen over a sea of “happy people.”

The good news is that I heard they recently added three more models to their range of tents: Trillium (small hammock that can sustain up to three people), Vista (tree tent with two layers) and Trilogy (a huge shelter that can fit six people and it has a central canopy and three sleeping areas). Classy!

The reason why I find this suspended tree initiative awesome (which by the way was was created by Kirk Kirchev and Alex Shirley-Smith in 2012) is because they plant three trees for every tent that you buy. How cool is this?

    It looks more fun but is it safe? I can see that there’s a kid there. Sure, I know it is not that different from a tree house but a tree house looks more sturdy.
