One of the things to you can do to live POSITIVELY is being in touch with nature. It has been proven that communing with nature does your spiritual health a lot of good. However, camping and hiking is not for everyone. A lot of people are simply afraid of bugs, the inconvenience of not having access to the things that make life “comfortable” such as nice sleeping space, electricity, toilets etc.
So these two brothers created TENTSILE that they hope will encourage people to be more adventurous. The creators said, “Tentsile Tree Tents were conceived as treehouses that you can take anywhere. Our “tree tents” offer an incredible new way for you and your friends to experience a whole new level of Freedom. Separated from wet, lumpy, bumpy, uneven ground and with increased protection from snakes, bugs and other creepies, our range offers the opportunity to camp in places no one has ever camped before.”
So what inspired this brilliant idea? On their website it said:
In 1983: A six-year-old London boy, Alex, saw the destruction of the Amazonian rainforest on the BBC news. A few weeks later, his grandmother took him to see Return of the Jedi. The Ewok tree village on Endor planted an idea – our forests would only survive if trees had a value to us humans, he thought, other than a monetary one. If we used trees as living accommodation, that might just save them! The seed of treehouse architecture had been sown.
Many years later, after training as an architect, Alex conceives ‘Tentsile’ as a usable space created through pure tension. The lightweight, portable treehouse would use three anchor points to create a “living space” suspended between the trees …and so began the process of designing and prototyping affordable, habitable, tensioned tree structures.
So would you consider being more outdoorsy if you have one of these?
