There was a hefty wind storm a few nights back which did a lot of damage to the rain fly. I wasn't terribly concerned because the tent did not appear to be damaged.....
Until I got home the next day and found the two side seems had split and the front of the tent was on the ground.....and the back of the tent was flattened.
Hmmm. That royally sucks.
Duff and I headed off to the store to find something to sleep in.
I found a two person dome tent. Since I need to mount it onto the cots....I also got some of my beloved bungee cords and binder clips.
It took some effort but I finally got it all together:
It is way not a winter tent.....but I will wrap it up in tarps to cut down on the heat loss and we still have the grizzly sleeping bag.....so all is good.
