Is there a store to rent camping gear-tent, pad, air mattress, between montrose and Telluride? Flying in, not sure if I can keep under baggage limits.  Thank You!

Not sure about renting, probably one of the more local festivarians could answer that. But, our friend last year flew into Montrose last year. He brought a wheeled suitcase mostly for clothes, and a backpacking pack with small tent, sleeping bag, pad, folding lowback camp chair, collapsable cooler, coffee mug, beer glass, plate, bowl and utensils. We already had a space saved for him as he didn't get there till late Wednesday night. He ate all his breakfast in town, and his lunches and dinners in the festival grounds. It worked well for him and the limited time frame he had for travel. This year though he's driving and arriving on landrush day!

You can usually mail a package to yourself to any post office general delivery. I haven't done this in years, but it worked out well. I believe they hold general deliveries for something like 30 days. You could call the Telluride PO and find out the details. Then you can ship your own gear, and ship it home after.

If your solo, camping in Town Park or Warner then you should be able to get away with very bare necessities camp set up. Might want a few more comfort items if your at Mary E or Lawson, and its more difficult to get a prepared meal whenever you like.

Couple of things: search Montrose gear and you might want to talk to someone at 970 Sports Rewind.

Like Todd said- you can mail yourself a box of gear "General Delivery" to the Telluride Post Office.  The Post Office is right outside Town Park, an easy, quick walk from any campsite in TP or Warner.

If it gets close and crunchy time, throw it back here on the forum- there's a few gear junkies (like me) that may be able to help, depending on where you plan to camp.

Post all of your gear needs in the Gear Share section of the forum to see who may have stuff to share.

Hell, I can probably cover just about everything you might need since I have to have my camper now.  Flower

We just got the new tent we ordered in the mail. Pretty excited to set it up and check it out. It's a four person tent by Big Agnes called big house 4, and we splurged for the extra vestibule.

Todd, you're gonna love that one, especially with the vestibule for all your gear.  I'm taking my new Big Agnes Sugarloaf (it's a big screened group shelter) to Old Settlers' in a couple of months for a test run.  I'm ready for festival camping season to start!

Just picked up a T4 gazelle hub - it is brilliant. Like an ice fishing shelter pod but with a velcro floor. Its 8x8 and you dont have to duck..It's up and down in 90 secs. Cons.. it's about the size of an ez up or golf bag when packed.
Can't wait to see it covered in aphid honeydew and TP dust.

Trying to keep things on topic, and since this was a gear thread I'll ask here.

I need to re-tape/seal the seams on our son's tent. It's an MSR Hubba Hubba. The seam tape is practically gone, and it won't be waterproof. My local outfitters are all out of stock of any seam sealers, so I have to order online. Any suggestions on brands, or styles? Pretty sure I don't want to fool around with the tape and glue, and will for sure use some form of liquid sealer.

Hi Todd,  Wave

GearAid Seam Grip is very good but relatively pricey.

For not so pricey, if you can find it at your local hardware store: Loctite Stik-n-Seal Outdoor Adhesive

Apply thin and let cure

This post made me check and a 6-pack of Stik-n-seal from Home Depot costs about the same as 1 tube of Seam Grip

I haven't checked price in a while but I keep a tube in the box w/us and its lasted a while. I want to say it was about 10 bucks for a tube but I can attest it has worked for us in a few pinches.

Theres always flexseal tape.... if for some chance you happen to cut your boat in half  lol

As for the original topic of this thread....  Hey psilly B
What is the verdict?
Which tent are you going with?
