We love being outdoors, and with that said, we love to go camping. Honestly, I feel that camping is one of the best ways to bond and spend time with your family. When you are out camping, there is no TV, no computers, no video games, just you, your kids and the nature that surrounds you. We tend to take a few days when we camp, that way we can take advantage of all of the time we have with our family. At this time our kids are young. Our daughter is 8 and our son is 3, so we tend to have more fun exploring and having fun then trying to encourage any bonding time, but I know, that those teen years when the kids become more independent and more distant is not too far off. So we will continue to take that time out to spend time and bond with our kids. One thing that I know can be something that we all dread when we go camping, is setting up camp. Trying to set up a tent can not only be a difficult task that can require more than one person, but it can also be time consuming. When we get to our campsite, we want to get out and have fun, we dont want to be stuck setting up a tent. So when I was sent the Periapsis 4 to review from LightSpeed Tents, I was very excited to try it out. To start off, you will need to lay the tent out flat, then you will go to the corners and lock the lower pole joints together. From there you will lift the top middle part up, or the hub, and push the upper and lower sections together. Your tent will appear to be up and ready, but you can not forget to put the hook that is in the middle on the loop! It only takes a couple of minutes to get this tent up, and the huge plus is, it only takes one person to get it together. There are not those huge awkward poles to thread through, which makes this tent a breeze to get up!!
To take the tent back down, it is just as easy! You first have to unlock the hook, then press down on the poles in the lower section, unlock the lower joints in the poles, fold the poles towards the center, then roll up and put back in the bag! And yes, it is just that easy!! Not only is this tent very easy to set up and take down, but it sleeps 4, which is perfect for our family since we are a family of 4! With the large front door, you can relax under the stars and also get plenty of air flow in your tent. Then if you happen to need to cover up due to weather, the tarp is easy to put on and also has a pole that gives it that peak to protect you from that rain that might come down. This tent is also light weight, so if you are looking to do some hiking to get to that perfect spot for camping, then this is the perfect tent to use! The Periapsis 4 from LightSpeed Tents can be found both at Amazon.com and at SamsClub.com!!
