Whilst looking at tents on-line Gayle and I came across a gem of a tent that takes upto 16 people. It has a central dome that allows you to zip bedroom pods onto it. If only say 4 of you turn up to an event you don't need to zip on a pod but if 8 do, you zip one pod on and if 12, you zip on another...... and so on up to 16.

Take a look.

We started to chat about how a group of us could put in the cash to buy the middle bit and then each person buys their own zip on pod. This led to the question of who you would want to be able to zip on to your middle bit.

This is the zip on pod.

So what I want to ask you is, who would you invest in the center pod with and who would you allow to zip on? ubbrollsmile

They need a bigger dome. Maybe a geodesic 30 footer where you could have a comfy common area for couches, hookas and a polldancer stage. biggrin

I do like the idea of zip on rooms though. "My skin is singed but it heals my heart and with glowing pride I'll wear my scars." -Davey Havok

I'm with mtbeer. Although, have you ever tried to erect a 30 ft geodesic dome? Maybe ours was larger than that, but boy do they take, time, energy, and lots of people. Mucho fun though. biggrin

ok here goes my list and why..... don't be offended if I forget you....... well work out how to zip more pods on later to get you in biggrin

Firstly I would buy the center with Gayle, Claire, and Matty B

Matty is a wizz at camping, Claire is calm and I think we would need a bit of calm with 16 people and Gayle is my evil buddy and will make me laugh a lot.

in my pod I would have :- Molly, UCoF and Gothfrogette.

Molly because she is crazy, UCoF because he is No1 biatch and lots of fun and Froggy because I can then wear all her clothes YAY!

I don't mind who the others pick for their pods because I trust them to make up a good mix of people.

There are loads of others I'd have in my pod if I could get pod extentions ubblol Feed me Chocolate!!! Feed me NOW!

Yoni hun its just hypothetical..... a bit like that game where you pick guests to be at your dinner party..... only it involves sleeping in tents and HoPpers.

Pick 3 people to own the center with you and pick your pod guests..... its that simple. Feed me Chocolate!!! Feed me NOW!

they can handle up to 3000mm of rain. at which point the tent would be under water. does that mean they float? "beg beg grovel beg grovel" "master" --FSA "There was an arse there, i couldn't help myself" --Rougie
