Cabin Trip and the Appearance of the Tentsile Tree Tent

What is that thing in the tree? Must be someone’s food cache to hide it from bears?. No it’s actually a Tree Tent, yes they sell those and they are kinda spendy. Jesse’s bro sent this to him from Alaska, must be a good fishing season!

3 trucker type ratchet straps is all that holds it up. You get it real tight!

  2. Hi Brocurt, they are interesting for sure, Kind of a novelty I think since they $600 I hear? I haven’t checked. His brother mailed Jesse that days before and this was the first time in use. It does have a very heavy rain fly. It’s supposed to have a rope ladder from the bottom hatch which ours was missing obviously. When tight it’s not that bouncy but it’s like sleeping in a hammock, you can’t really move which I don’t really like. 3 adult people is too much since someones feet were in my face for the short time I was in there. lol. When you saw it fall, that was just a unlocked ratchet strap slipping. I think it would have held us, we were under the 880 lbs limit but Justin was crazy for getting in haha. Would have been a better video if it had failed I suppose.

    I saw a picture of this about a year ago. I thought it was very interesting but I couldn’t imagine that it would be very easy to move around in. Kind of like moving around in one of those bouncy houses at kid’s parties? I really hope that someone reports back to you and that you report back, too.

    Glad you didn’t rip up the tent by adding the 4th person. Somebody needs to take some math classes, hmmmmmmm?
