We've always strapped our tent on to one of our rear racks and that's been fine. Most likely, that's what we'll do now, but I thought I would explore options. We've been carrying just one tent for the four of us since Alaska, but Eddie Bauer/First Ascent just sent us two brand new, heavy duty mountaineering tents which will hold up great in the Patagonian winds. However, they are both big and heavy - essentially doubling our tent weight.
All along, my husband has carried our tent on his rear rack, but we don't really want to put both of these tents on that rack (alothough we could if we needed to). We want to put one on my son's bike. I can strap it to his rear rack, and move the stuff that is currently there, but thought I'd see if anybody here has come up with some other, creative way of carrying a tent.
so - how and where to you stash your tent?
