I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this, so please let me know if there's another forum that is more appropriate for this request. I am tent shopping, and I would love to try out a few different models before deciding what to buy. I'm interested in the SMD trekker, TT Notch and StrastoSpire 1, and the zpacks Hexamid twin (would also take a look at a solo or solo plus). I like in the SF Bay Area and I'm wondering if there is anybody local to me who would be willing to let me try out your tent for a weekend. I have a lot of experience in the backcountry and will treat it with care and respect.
In gratitude for any offers, I can offer:
--an hour of shiatsu bodywork
--kombucha or other fermented drinks
--a small donation for gear upkeep
Thank you for reading this. And p.s. If there are tents that you think I MUST have on this list please let me know. I'm willing to try something else out to see what I like and don't like in an ul tent.
