I have been in two minds about taking the kids camping by myself (big wuss emotion) for a while now, but I have 4 weeks ahead of me of just me and the kids. DS is 7 and DD is 6 so they can help with pitching but at the minute we only have a Maritsa 500 but I find this heavy with DH on the other side so no chance of getting it up aided/hindered by 2 small kids.
Anyone got a Calisto? Do you think me and a 7yr old could put it up? I like the look of the Calisto, sturdy poles are a must after an horrendous trip with an Icarus. I would also want a SIG.
