Storm Proof Your Tent

Thanks for the great advice. My dad was also a mechanical engineer, but just the type who designed machines, not bridges. He still would have made a blueprint drawing to plan for the storm, though! ;-)
Unfortunately, the last time I encountered storms in my tent, it was in the middle of the night, and gale force winds of up to about 70-90 kms and about 8-10 cm of rain each storm (there were 2 of the same strength within 48 hours, both at night), killed my tent. That's OK, though, because I now have a terrific new Eureka! Mountain Pass.
Looking forward to our next wilderness clean-up event!
