Outside the Office

Posted by on


Did you make forts as a kid or have a treehouse once upon a time? Full adult mode kicks in and those things tend to be forgotten. A local Utah company thinks otherwise, and we couldn’t be happier with their product!

In a series of blog posts to come, we want the Arvo clan to hear about what goes on outside the Arvo office, what we do for fun, and what brands we love! This week we’re talking about Tentsile!

Tentsile is a local Utah company who makes tension suspended treehouses that can be set up just about anywhere you can imagine.

The design was created by Alex Shirley-Smith to help preserve the forest floor  and promote zero impact camping.

“...If we’re hanging in trees, they can’t be chopped down!” (Tentsile)

About a year ago we got our hands on the Stingray tent from Tentsile and it completely changed the way we camp for the better. Gone are the days of trying to find that perfectly flat spot, and digging out rocks so you can actually sleep.

Walking through the forest, leaving the beaten path, and finding a totally unique camping spot always gets us excited to camp. This spot was found near the top of the Alpine Loop, American Fork Canyon, Utah.

Picking the right spot is like a game and once you find your trees, ratchet the straps down and set up the poles, you’re ready to get in!

Getting into a tentsile is always fun! Sometimes it’s easy.

Sometimes it’s not, but it's always worth it.

It’s always better to have a little help from friends.

With the Tentsile Stingray the imagination and ability to get into the tent are the only limits. In the end, we’re always left smiling and happy above the forest floor in our tree fort.

Thanks to awesome companies like Tentsile, who plant 3 trees for every tent sold, we get to enjoy nature and feel a little better about taking care of this place we call home.


Be good, Do good.
