  Storm Proofing Your Tent
  Posted by: old_user on Jul-26-07 10:26 AM (EST)
 

I agree with bynstrom on the footprint and tiedowns. Although, I also like the idea of having the extra tarp inside to give an added protection. I've been caught in many storms and down pours. Water always has a way of puddling under the tent, between the footprint and floor.

A new coating of Re-Coat on the tent floor helped on my last trip.

Oh, my dad was also an engineer. He designed many bridges and dam structure. A very smart man who could not even begin to set up a tent with out, first, an hours study of the manual.
