A friends & fam gathering on a NH lake a while back.

I was trying out what it would be like to host and cook for a bunch of people for future workshops. I had a great spot across a causeway; had the small island all to ourselves; set up my OZTent RV-5 (on left) as housing for company, and had a grand old time. We had another tent or two set up as well, and 7-8 people over a few days. Kayaking and canoeing, fishing, hammocks, campfires, the works.

I learned, though, that I treasure my solo time and privacy and am not real keen on having a mess of folks use my gear for making fires, cooking meals, and wanting my attention. For an evening, yeah, no problem. Finest kind. For three-four days though? I worked my tail off and didn't really relax much.

The OZTent RV-5 setup is now for sale, as I've only used it a few times. I'm slimming down what I have in storage and that I don't use much, in prep for more adventures with van and trailer.

The RV-5 is a wonderful bit of kit, has a ton of room and great features, and is quick and easy to set up and pack away. I'm sorely tempted to keep it, actually, it's such a solid and roomy piece of gear, and I'll know I'll want it down the road. But it's time to let some stuff go. Up for sale here: OZTent RV-5 Full Setup.

There's a group of guys at work that go to Black Gap every January. I was going to go this year but it got canceled. What's the fee structure? Reservations required?

Only fee is for a Limited Use Permit from the state of Texas. $17. No reservations. A lot of it is closed most of the year for hunting though.
