Time to let go of my altitutde tent. Any takers?

Post by runner800m » Sun Jan 17, 2021 9:42 am

I used to be really into the 14ers in your lovely state. I lived in Colorado twice and in the Four Corners area once. I even proposed on Mount Evans at the end of a cross-country scavenger hunt.

Alas, my Colombian wife feels comfortable in Florida, and we're going to settle here. I have an altitude tent that I have not used in years. It's probably time to stop lugging it around every time we move.

Is anyone interested? Glad to try to get pictures, the model, etc. if you'd like. Pay for shipping and give me your best offer, and I'll send it. Not looking to haggle on price. Just something small would be great. I could probably be persuaded into giving it to you just for shipping if you are really nice.

Update: I've gotten a few PMs in addition to the two replies listing email addresses. I've replied to all the replies, but haven't heard back on any of those yet. So if you're wondering, I still have it!

Hope everyone is having a nice Monday. Enjoy the winter there for me -- it's in the 70s here all week. That may sound gorgeous, but as a person who misses seasons, I think it's a little gross.

Does it come with a WifeConvincer?!

It's probably an anti-WifeConvincer, if my experience is any indication!

I'll take honest as well. Haha.

There has been some confusion about what I'm referencing when I say altitude tent. So for clarification:

It's a CAT Colorado Mountain Room System from, I believe, the mid-2000s. Somewhere between 2007 and 2010, I think.

I have the generator (I think that's what you'd call it), the tube that pumps the generator into the tent and the tent itself.

Or, as one user pointed out: "I get it now, it's a hypoxia tent to simulate altitude. I was thinking more camping tent."

I would certainly be interested if it’s not already taken.
