[at-l] Real Tent Weights

Hello All,
	All the recent seasonal wish lists messages and some others
looking for tent information I thought maybe its time to dust off the tent
weights list.  I'm willing to up date the list if you want to send me
additions or corrections.  Models do change from year to year.  I have
added to the list below when the tent was last weighted.
	A Real Tent Weight survey was done on the AT-L in the fall of
1996.  The weights came from people who actually weighed their tents not
company numbers.  The weights include tent with poles, pegs, ropes, stuff
bags and without a ground cloth.  Thanks to all who took the time weighing
their tents and submitted entries.  Feel free to sent me your tent info. 
Try to go to UPS, Post office, mail room etc. to use a certified scale.
