I've been researching on this site for weeks, but I believe this is my first post. Lots of great information on this site. Appreciate all I have gleaned from your posts.
I'll be making my first ever trip to Alaska in 2012 to bowhunt caribou. There will be two of us and are figuring on an eight day drop camp. The Alaskan Guide model tent seems to be very popular here.....so the plan is to pick one up over the winter.
1. Is the 4 man tent w/vestibule plenty for a party of two....or would the six man be a better choice for an extended stay on the tundra?
2. I've read posts claiming the aluminum poles are the way to go for durability....and I've seen posts saying fiberglass will hold up better in strong winds. Since I'll be buying new....I have both options available. Which is the better setup?
Appreciate it guys. Feel like I've come a long ways over the past couple months of making this trip a reality!
