Photos on Flickr

Last year I created a Tent-A-Cools Flickr account, but it's not an easy thing to manage with multiple people, so we're going with the blog now. But the photos are still there. Relive the glory days of the initial Tent-A-Cools crew, back when it included Jeff and Emma (still with us in spirit!).



Here's a GIF of the Tent-A-Cools logo if anyone wants to use it. Or, for the more enterprising among us, click here to download a print-ready EPS. (Notes: The magenta dieline is For Position Only...not for print. EPS files can be imported into Quark/In-Design, and opened in Illustrator/Photoshop).

this is good...

no more clogging of in box and i can view this at work!

Welcome to the Tent-A-Cools Blog

Shannon wanted to set up a Web site for the Tent-A-Cools where we can post info for upcoming trips, photos of past trips, etc. So rather than do something that would require any expense or difficulty, I set up this group blog for us...free and easy!

Anyone can view this site, and leave comments, but only official Tent-A-Cools members can create new posts. Posting photos is pretty easy -- you don't need to worry about file size (at least, I don't think so) as you do with Flickr. You can only upload 5 at a time, but you can keep hitting the photo button to add more, so you can have as many photos as you want in one post.

This page template here has a space on the right reserved for handy-dandy links that will be showing always. I'm wondering: what should those links be? National Parks service? Weather? Some sort of camping info site? Maps? REI? Leave your suggestions in the comments.
