Thanks so much, folks, for the replies so far!
Glen, I checked out that url (http://tinyurl.com/38x9uu) and it took
me to the US Plastic Corp, which doesn't seem to offer any sort of
metal anything, let alone pipe setups. Should it have been something
Noel, thanks for the tip on the Light Dome. That would of course be
nice, to have one set of walls for inside or out, but I did just get
a tent last year. It's an EZ-Up, a brand new style with a heavier
fabric. I'm pleased with it so far, although I used it on a gorgeous,
fairly calm day, so it wasn't put to any real tests. I know the Light
Dome is one of the "good" ones, but I didn't have the pocket change
for that one yet (although if I'd thought at the time that I'd be
investing this year in pipe & drape, too, the expense might have been
worth it!), so maybe sometime down the line. Nice to know,
though, that it can be versitile enough to use without the roof for
inside, although I'd wonder if it would be OK for me to setup by
myself, since you say it is a bit tricky. A thought to put away for
later, though, for sure.
Stan, thank you, too, for the link. I checked out the site you
recommended (http://www.innovative-sys.com) & am awaiting a price
list. So, we shall see!
