Sleep or lounge in luxurious comfort in the Eureka Copper Canyon tent. Designed using Eureka's StormShield technology--which combines moisture-repelling materials with a tough, reinforced construction that resists against wear and tear--the nine-pole, cabin-style tent is built around an 80-square-foot sleeping room, with space for six camping pads on the floor or two cots and gear. On the other side sits an 80-square-foot screen room that offers ample protection on particularly hot or rainy days, along with a sod cloth along the perimeter to keep insects from getting inside. Combine the two rooms and you have the perfect tent for family vacations and long camping trips, with the vertical walls providing plenty of functional space.
The tent's floor plan includes sleeping space for six people.
Each room also offers multiple entrances, with a side-opening, twin-track main door for the sleeping room, an inverted T-style door with roll-back storm covers for the screen room, and a side-opening interior door for easy passage between the two. And campers will love the multiple skylights--one for each room--which let you gaze at the stars in the evening or read in comfort in the daytime.
The built-in sweep-out point makes it easy to ditch dirt.
The Copper Canyon sets up easily, with a combination steel and fiberglass frame, clip attachments, and a ring and pin assembly. And thanks to the zippered E! Power port, you can even bring a grounded outdoor extension cord into the tent without letting pesky insects in as well. Other details include seven total windows, a full-panel mesh roof, two gear lofts, a built-in sweep-out point for ditching dirt, a storage pocket that keeps your essentials organized, and sewn-in loops along the screen room perimeter for suspending a rope light. The three-season tent measures 16 by 10 feet on the floor, offers a center height of 7 foot 3 inches, and weighs 36 pounds 3 ounces. All Eureka tents carry a lifetime warranty.
Though the exact year is unknown, Eureka’s long history begins prior to 1895 in Binghamton, New York, where the company still resides today. Then known as the Eureka Tent & Awning Company, its first wares were canvas products--most notably, Conestoga wagon covers and horse blankets for nineteenth century American frontiersmen--as well as American flags, store awnings, and camping tents.
The company increased production of its custom canvas products locally throughout the 1930s and during the 1940 and even fabricated and erected the IBM "tent cities" just outside Binghamton. The seven acres of tents housed thousands of IBM salesmen during the company’s annual stockholders meeting, which had since outgrown its previous locale. In the 1940s, with the advent of World War II and the increased demand for hospital ward tents, Eureka expanded operations and began shipping tents worldwide. Ultimately, upon the post-war return of the GIs and the resultant housing shortage, Eureka turned its attention to the home front during the 1950s by supplying awnings for the multitude of mobile homes that were purchased.
In 1960, Eureka’s new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was used in a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented to summit Mt. Everest only six years earlier. In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, with more than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below -20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.
For backpackers and families, Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s. Truly the first StormShield design, this completely self-supporting and lightweight backpacking tent became one of the most popular tents the entire industry with sales reaching over 1 million by its ten year anniversary.
Eureka tents have also traveled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women’s Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and American woman in 1986 and 1988. In recent history, tents specially designed and donated by Eureka sheltered Eric Simonson and his team on two historic research expeditions to Mount Everest, this time in a quest for truth regarding the 1924 attempted summit of early English explorers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. During the 1999 expedition, the team made history finding the remains of George Mallory, but the complete mystery remained unsolved. Returning in 2001 to search for more clues, the team found amazing historical artifacts which are now on display at the Smithsonian.

Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.
Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.
For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.
Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.
Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.
The Barnes Home Abraham Lincoln Room
I have wanted to photograph this house and this specific room for about two years now. Ever since Dok1 told me about it and I'd heard rumors of the Abraham Lincoln connection. I drove by numerous times and stopped a couple times and was unable to find anyone here. That is until this past friday. I was greeted by the current owner and after talking in the yard for a short time he confirmed that Abraham Lincoln indeed did spend three or four days here. And, invited me in and gave me a tour of this magnificant house. The Barnes Home in Sargents Station is what it's known as today. Located in Pike County Ohio. It was amazing to stand in the room where Abraham Lincoln once stayed. I will be posting alot more historical info about the house as related to me by the owner very soon as I just wanted to get the photos posted without further delay.The history of this house will amaze and enthrall you. The following information was provided to me by Geoffrey Sea. The current owner of the home. The Barnes Home in Sargents Station was built by John Barnes and his father-in-law Pressley Boydston between 1803 and 1805, rebuilt circa 1870 using the same floor plans and materials. John Barnes served three terms in the state legislature and numerous terms as a judge. He was a fervent abolitionist , founded the Party of Henry Clay in Pike County, and was a central figure in the Clay movement of Ohio. He was the first cousin to Governor Robert Lucas, whose mother was Susanna Barnes. In the early years the Barnes Home and Sargent Home served alternately as a station on the Underground Railroad, as a meeting place for the Sargents Methodist Episcopal Church, and as a clandestine Masonic Lodge. John and Elizabeth Barnes had ten surviving children. The seventh child was Isaac Newton Barnes who inherited the homestead in the 1830s. He married Mary Magdaline Sargent of the Sargent family up the road. They hosted Abraham Lincoln at the end of November in1848. Lincoln came to see the earthworks which had been featured in Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley, published earlier that year. Isaac Newton and Mary Magdalene Barnes had four children, including Henry Clay Barnes, born in 1852, the year of Clay's death, and Charles Sargent Barnes. Henry Clay Barnes inherited the homestead in the 1880s. He married Blanche Richardson in 1898, and was elected Pike County Sheriff in1899. In 1900, Blanche mounted the last passenger ever sighted in the wild, while she was six months pregnant . Soon after delivery in June of 1900, both Blanche and her child Isaac Newton Barnes II , died, probably as a result of arsenic poisoning from the taxidermy. Henry Clay Barnes had no other children. Charles Sargent Barnes inherited the homestead in the 1920s upon his brother's death, but had no other children, and upon his death, the property passed out of the Barnes family. In 1952, the Atomic Energy Commission purchased about 300 acres from the old Barnes Barnes estate, leaving only 88 acres with the Barnes Home, from an original estate that comprised at least 1500 acres. Notable visitors to the home included Henry Clay, Ephraim George Squirer ( considered the father of American archaelogy ), and Abraham Lincoln. Aside from other archaelogical distinctions, the Barnes estate is the only single property where four prehistoric birdstones have been discovered.One Bedroom, Two Ways Article, Pg 1
Here is the finished product for the project, one room two ways. We were to write a magazine article showcasing our design in third person, like a real magazine article would. This is page one of three. The article reads: What some designers may shy away from, Interior Designer Ellen Nygaard, LEED AP, took on with enthusiasm. The challenge was to create one room, two ways. When Nygaard began, she decided to express foremost her adaptability as a designer. “My goal was to create two very different bedrooms to not only demonstrate my versatility, but to also show how design can communicate a client’s personality,” she says. When Nygaard started researching for the traditional bedroom, she was drawn to the details of Cesar Daly’s drawings from “Motifs Historiques Decorations Interieures Vol. 2.” “It’s amazing to see the detail in Daly’s drawings. I really wanted the traditional bedroom to focus on the architectural details,” says Nygaard. While the architecture plays as the main focus, it’s accentuated by beautiful artwork and phenomenal antiques. “When I began my research, it was a clear choice for me to incorporate antiques as much as possible.” Some of those antiques include a Louis XVI chandelier, table lamps, demilune table, a gilted daybed, along with numerous accessories. The custom rug truly pulls the space together through color and texture. It demonstrates the grandeur of Louis XVI style which is seen throughout the room and is based on a design found in the Palace of Versailles in France. “Versailles has... see pg 2 for the following
