Kelty “Car-Port” a Good Piece of Gear!

Today I decided to put up some shade at my camp site.  It was getting hot and my camper doesn’t have an awning so I broke out the “Kelty Car-Port.”  I have not used it in a few years but luckily I saved the directions and set up was pretty easy.  “The Car-Port” is light-weight, easy to assemble and very versatile.  It can be set up with the forward edge on the ground, as I have done today (see picture below).  You can also set it up with the long two front legs that give it sufficient room for a 6 ft tall person to easily stand under.  When in the low position, you can deploy the side flaps giving you protection from the sun in all directions.  In the future I will try to post information about equipment I use that I think is “a good piece of gear.”

 I give the Kelty Car-Port 4 Big-Feet out of a possible 5

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
