I just bought a new backpacking tent for two. It's a NEMO Nano Elite model and it is SUHWEET. It comes in leaf green and was regularly 389.00. I picked one up for 269.00 on closeout! This is awesome considering I have had my eye on one of these for a while now. :)
Check out these specs...

3 seasons
32 square ft
Mesh door faces outwards so it can be used as an internally adjustable vent when rain isn't a factor
Mesh door can be unzipped completely from the tent to save a few ounces
Curved floor edges cut out excess material and produce excellent tension to the tent shell
DAC poles sets are on average 20% lighter than standard aluminum poles and use a green method of anodization
A large internally deployable vent promotes good air ventilation
Large internally deployable overhead vent further helps combat condensation
Includes DAC Featherlite poles, stakes, and stuff sack
Footprint available separately
Packed weight: 2lbs 13oz

My only regret is that it won't be here in time for my backpacking trip this weekend.

I was actually considering going to Sawyer since Georgetown is so much closer and it is a great walk for sure...

But since I haven't been out in a while, HCSNA is the place where I want to start. If you like...we can plan a trip in the future with some friends. Let me know. :)
