I said the same thing...

It was even cold (20F) outside with a few flurries in the air as I was unpacking it, so it really did feel like Christmas.

Customs was no sweat. I BARELY snuck in the door as they were closing, and other than a few looks from the officer expressing his wonder at why someone would pay nearly $2k and go to South Africa for a friggin' TENT. They must have paid any duties and tarrifs from the other end because I didn't have to pay anything at all, just have the guy sign off the papers.

I'll try to get out for at least an over-night ASAP. I have a spot where I can back the truck under a 2nd floor deck in order to be able to hoist the tent on and off. The truck barely fits in the garage, and gets driven every day anyway, so it's normal parking spot has always been outside. I think you can see from the pictures that the darned TENT barely fit in the garage, much less the G. [:)]
