I am heading out to the campgrounds with 3 friends, I was wondering if you guys think this would be too much to bring to camp. I am planning to make this a bit smaller and set our tent up underneath it with it extending out more to the front of the tent so we all could hang out with people underneath it and keep cool.

Remember that you have to carry all your crap from the campground to your spot. That would be sweet though. Is it tough to set up?

I was thinking about it and it will be a lot to carry. i think i am going to modify the design to work with the frame from an ez up so it will pack down easier and be less to carry. the parachute i got is 35 ft not 64. i figured we can adjust size accordingly when we get to the campgrounds by rolling up the ends if need be.

Don't forget to bring the parachute pants.
