Rain, thunder yonder

In Taku's womb I ponder

More peaks to wander?

The Taku is a single wall tent Made by Marmot out of first generation Gore-Tex tent in the mid 70's into the early 80's and then was temporarily brought back for a guest appearance in 1997 and built using Membraine fabric instead of Gore-Tex.

The Gort-Tex version

As long as it has a snow tunnel its a 4 season tent. There are no other features needed(no fly, guyouts, etc.)
