I'd be worried about external poles like that catching the wind, mind you I've been the only tent left on a Campsite after all the rest had been blown off or taken down and driven away (I was backpacking at the time so had no option other than to stay)I assume that poles on the outside are used with outer first pitching. I prefer to set up the outer first as there is shelter for clipping the inner into position during heavy rain. The inner should not get wet at all.
That last part, you've not tried pitching/striking in poor light, when you've the chance?Fabric sleeved poles on outer fly my preference.
Doesn't snag so long as you're concentrating.
Inner can often go up at same time already clipped inside but stays dry.
Can get mine up in less than three mins.
It's not called a 'Moment' for nowt.
Can't abide tent faffing at end of long day, or if yr pitching late, and nearly dark, somewhere stealthy.
Yes that's what I meant.That last part, you've not tried pitching/striking in poor light, when you've the chance?
Never had a problem with all those fearful, things you mention.
Tips welcomed for reverse psychology techniques to get the landowner to beg you to stay in their beautiful spot living off the fat of the land.
Have never erected a tent with both bits pre attached even when the design allows it - I suppose I'.m concerned about tangling and duvet filling type faff. And packing damage from any hard bits on tent skin. Maybe a. Old fashioned but prefer to pack both bits separately. Helps stop moisture transfer as well.
Decathlon do some very clever looking things where I think the whole caboodle is pre attached, including I think the poles (though possibly not your bed) but am afraid I am even more wary of those.
The only problem I've encountered is when there's thefts in the area. They get protective, and wary of signs of anyone using the land.Never had a problem with all those fearful, things you mention.
But always glad to have a hand with weeding etc here, plenting of pitching space even.
Although in two days in you might be begging to leave.
The 'country life' can be rewarding, but hard graft too despite all the romanticised nonsense that gets attached to it, by townies..
If you're sensible, most landowners won't even know you are there, esp if you scarper quickish in the morning.
And most aren't going to stress about a bit of flattened grass, obv if you're damaging stuff, setting fires, or leaving waste, it's a different matter.
It's just common sense really.
This is true, and a fair worry for some, I'm sure.The only problem I've encountered is when there's thefts in the area. They get protective, and wary of signs of anyone using the land.
