The bubble tent may be OK stocked with books but I certainly do not need something to fold my dress shirt (Note singular). My hiking shirt gets wadded into the pack without folding.

Climate here isn't too conducive to bubble living, at least in summer, but I could definitely see making my own jerky, lots of it, from June to September. Then come October think how great the bedroom would smell! While the spouse is more drawn to lavender I would treasure the aroma of Beefy Boudoir.

Cheers,
