So, here we are - the last day of 2014. As you don your best outfit for partying or a last-minute outdoor adventure, dredge up the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne and prepare to pop the Champagne, take a minute to read this post and find out, as promised, what the Tentsile team members are looking forward to most in 2015. As a bonus, there are some 2014 highlights to fill you with wonder as well.
A Tentsile fan in a Connect has a last-minute 2014 adventure in Oxfordshire woodland.
Kirk's highlight of 2014
"When I was at a tropical waterfall with the Connect tent which I had set up over the pool. The rest of the team had not yet arrived at the site and the wind from the waterfall was blowing droplets of water into my face as I stood in a sun beam with my eyes closed and let the moment wash over me...."
...and anticipated highlight of 2015
"Going to the USA for the first time this January. We are going on a road trip to the Redwoods on the way to the Salt Lake City Expo! It's going to be EPIC!"
A Trilogy tent in action over a roaring camp fire.
Alex's favourite 2014 experience
"Going on a "Leave No Trace" experience in Finland in June. 24 hour daylight, secret island in the middle of a secret lake. Private chef and travelling by Kayak! A spooky white fog descended during the night and you could not distinguish between the lake and the sky...."
...and something to be excited about next year
"Setting up the ultimate Ewok Village using every piece of equipment we make! Two spare floors, stacked under a Trilogy
with a Vista
floating over the lot. An 18 person floating tree tent fiesta, set up between three huge Redwoods!"
Some stacking rehearsals - Ewok Village will take skill!
Rob's best memory of 2014
"Coming to work full time with Tentsile in May was a big step for me. Joining the team just as the summer rush ramped up was a huge learning curve in all kinds of ways! How to run a small business just as the founders went off to open a factory and left me to it!"
...and what 2015 will bring
"Travelling around the world to see what our customers are doing with our tents and what crazy set ups they are creating in all kinds of weird and wonderful places!"
So, whatever your plans for this evening, for tomorrow, or for the rest of 2015, a huge HAPPY NEW YEAR from all of us at Tentsile. We look forward to another year of adventure with you all.
