(where the main tent is) then
continues back (90 degrees)
about 100' toward a small
clearing. It is in this section
where we set up the rest of our

driveway open for our vehicle

was right there to greet us!

This is our main tent which
housed our stove, refrigerator,
kitchen equipment, couch,
tilt-back chair, and of course
our TV and DVD/CD player.
