Euphoria Festival Fun!

Euphoria Festival Fun!

Although I had a 1400 mile trip in front of me, I couldnt help a smile of satisfaction creep over my face as I realised the season of summer festival fun was about to begin – and people will be pitching their Tentsiles everywhere the world over.

I Love My Job

I Love My Job

A jolly fella named Syd was trying to find a place to live in Ogden; so I offered up my help. Naturally, I asked if they were hiring and sent over my CV right away. The whole Tentsile team was heading to Utah from London for the Outdoor Retailer show. I was heading to the show anyway, so I made some time and we arranged to meet up. Just after a few minutes of chatting with Alex… a job offer! Before signing on, I had the pleasure of working side by side with both Kirk and Alex modifying a prototype. That pretty much sealed the deal for me. These guys are passionate and treated me as though I was already part of the team/family. So I accepted the job.

Here at Tentsile, we want to get in on some of the outside action too. And that is why, when I had the opportunity to go up and out to the Peak District in northern England, I jumped at the chance at helping the oldest camping magazine in the world! So I made the four hour trip from London with excitement and anticipation. And when I got there I was not disappointed.

Finland Stop over

Finland Stop over

After 20 years of state funded research, it is now well documented that forests are good for us, relieving stress, lowering blood pressure and clearing the mind. Finland has started making moves towards a new 21st century model of tourism with wilderness and nature at it's heart, and this event was the culmination of phase one of the action plan. They call it, Finland - Stop Over!

Tentsile's 3rd Birthday

Tentsile's 3rd Birthday

Can you believe it? A once wistful dream of designing and making portable tree houses is now earning us a living! First of all, thank you. Without your desire to make your own way into the trees, we would never have kept going this long.

Honesty is the Best Policy

Honesty is the Best Policy

Seems like you guys like honesty. Doesn't usually go hand in hand with corporate strategy these days though, does it? Well, we aren't corporate; we are a tiny start up with a passion for trees and a simple idea.
