I have a tent at home that's been used 2 times this year because I retired my old one last year after it's been used 10+ times.
I actually left it at the festival and gave it to the neighbors because they were young punks that had super shitty cheap tents and even my old one was better than that.

I'm with Samantha on this - if you don't want to ticks don't go camping. They live in the woods and grass not tents.

For years Keith has made me laugh with his “throw the tent away - once done camping.” It’s hilarious because it’s so absurd. Who the hell throws gear away? Personally I have a pretty decent tent and a -20 degree synthetic down mummy bag.

Good gear is important. It says something about you. No one is ever going to change Keith’s mind - ESPECIALLY now that he has added the “ticks live in the woods” aspect to argument.

What I’m saying is Keith is dead wrong about this. However. If his horrendous approach to camping keeps turning out top notch comedy - meh, whatever works. “Stay Inside.” 😂

And whatever you do, don't get bit by THIS tick, which was probably released from a secret vegan lab somewhere...

Yeah - you collected them walking around the campsite. If you didn't do a tick check when you get in the tent or missed one they will find a nice place to bite you while you lay down because they can detect delicious smelling hosts.

They will not crawl down a tree, stroll through your campsite, open your tent zipper and hide just so they can attack you in your sleep number bed 2 days later.

A SEARCH BAR?!

Holy crap, Keith, you have no idea how long I have been waiting for this. So many episodes I have missed and you two make constant references to them. Oh the days whenst I wished I could just SEARCH for the topics, Oh the agony, Oh the struggle! Then suddenly, all gone. Thank you Master Keith. Thank you.

Thank you, and you're welcome. And it's been there for years.



Look around. I bet there's so much more.

I keep my tents. But I camp about 15 times a year, and have 3 different tents depending on the type of camping; Festival/group camping, backpacking, solo road tripping, cold weather, etc. My oldest tent is 4 years, the most expensive one is about $200.
I also have a house with a yard/garage/basement, so storage and cleaning isn't a hassle. So I understand not wanting to deal with the tent "maintenance" if you only camp once a year. If I were willing to throw away $60 each time I camped, I wouldn't be saving any money and may as well just get a motel.

A side note: I don't think ticks like me, as I haven't seen one in 25 years, and I camp almost every other weekend between spring and autumn. Everyone else seems to freak out about them.

I recently camped my way across the country (to save money, I'm not particularly into camping) and after the first few days I thought Keith is crazy throwing his tent away every time, it's so easy. Then I got towards the East where everything is wet all the time and bugs are everywhere and I got it. Add to that living in New York City where space doesn't exist and it makes all the sense in the world. I just don't like throwing it away when it could be used by somebody else though, which I think is all Chemda is against too. (And that she has to pack it up because her name is on the campsite I guess.) I don't know if I believe they'd charge you for leaving a perfectly good tent but I understand not wanting to risk it. Can't Keith just pack it into the bag it came with and leave that somewhere? Because refusing that much seems like just deliberately being an asshole to Chemda.
