How to pitch a tent so that it doesn't rain on our heads
Here we are ... After a long way, we got to the campsite . The last challenge is ahead of us - to set up a tent. Apparently, the matter is simple ... but it only seems so.
Those who did it wrong will agree. If we do not take the matter seriously, we will have:
1. The flysheet brushing our face in the morning.
2. In the event of strong winds - viewing the stars in the sky.
3. The flood or the pool.
4. Locust raid.
5. Possible visit of uninvited guests
Of course, it all depends on the type of tent and the mileage years. If your portable home is typically "festival" - read no further, because our advice will not improve the situation much. We know this from the autopsy. You'll wake up with rain on your face anyway.
However, if you are going to spend at least 2 weeks in a tent, you need to logistically prepare for it. First of all, before departure, we check if we have all the elements of the structure. If the pegs are missing - buy or use long nails. It also works.
Forewarned is forearmed
If everything is ok and you have already rested after the trip - it's time to get down to business.
First, we look for a suitable place, because it's already half the battle. It must be relatively flat, because when it starts to rain, you will have a private pond in the holes. Another important thing is the object that will give us shade when the sun is warming. However, what is important - putting the tent directly under the tree is not a good idea. Then the idyll can be spoiled by: birds, rain dripping from the leaves or - we do not wish anyone - a stray lightning.
After finding the perfect place, you need to clean it. Everyone who has ever slept on pine cones remembers it ...
If you are just starting your adventure with camping, be sure to read the manual - even if you have set up the structure on the front lawn before leaving. Now the matter is serious, because it is your home, in good and bad.
The next steps are to insulate our miracles. Set up the tent with the door facing west. Well, let's go. Spread out all the elements on the grass and follow the instructions. Importantly - remember to stretch it well, tie it and close it so that we do not get bugs inside. It is also good to buy a tent with a vestibule, which will improve our camping comfort. Sometimes it's hard to stand inside with shoes drying out ...
A well-placed tent is guaranteed to us
1. Mental comfort in the rain.
2. No fear that we will wake up in the woods.
3. More likely to be attacked by nothing, unless a shaky camper passes by.
