Just a quick overnight fishing trip.  These were taken before i added ropes to the vertical poles tops out at a 45 to stakes in ground and had the floor area tarped.

That is a great looking tent!! Good spot, too.

I'm not familiar with this model. Is that clerestory to vent heat/ moisture? Is is nylon or canvas? Looks cool.

Also, Catch any fish? Being a fisherman, I'm required to ask. [smile]

Thanks. I'll look into it. I like that tent.

Glad you got some. Sauger and walleye make an excellent meal - if you were keeping fish.

Thanks again.

I used to have a Baker tent. A little more coverage @10x10 and full front flap. Deer hunting Waldorf.

I thought about getting a baker tent when i got my first whelen.  The headroom would be great but more ropes to trip over, at least in the back. On the islands i dig a trench in front so you can sit comfortably close to the fire and easier to get under the tent.

I trenched around the front and sides to channel off rain. My buddies laughed but after a downpour the were using my spade.

I've toyed with the idea of a Whelen for awhile but I don't do enough camping to justify one. Its smart and cleverly designed but the look of it is so appealing. In a forest setting rigged between 2 trees with a fire , its a satisfying " now that's camping" fantasy. lol     A few nice videos of the Whelen in action on youtube as well as a good write up by the late traditional camping advocate, the great Steve Watts.

Nice tent. I like Whelen or smiliar tent open to the fire. I also have a smittybilt trail shade that I can attach to my JK's rear tire mount for a quick setup. It is actually a tarp with poles.

I see this is an older post, but wanted to share my DIY Whelen Lean-to:
[ https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/whelen-leanto-second-outing-10161968?pid=1308792475 ]

I cut it out from a 12x24 Heavy-Duty Tarp, then TarpTape'd the edges.  I've had it out twice, once in 20-25mph winds and heavy rain, and the shelter performed beautifully.  It's an accessible way to get into Whelen's w/o/ dropping the $ on the beautiful ones that Tentsmiths and the like make from canvas.

Plans for the DIY version found here:
