Try our weather gauge to check which way the wind is blowing before you set up camp. Then you can place the back of your tent into the wind and the entrance away from it.2. Purchase a groundsheet to prevent snags or leaks in the bottom of your tent. Use one that is slightly smaller than your tent floor so it won t collect rain and debris.3. Always unpack your tent when you get home and air it out. This will keep mildew from ruining your tent s waterproofing. If your tent gets a musty smell, try out one of our tent deodorizers. 4. Store your tent in a large sleeping bag storage sack. Ridge Top carries several brands.5. Before you go anywhere, seal the seams of your tent using one of our seam-sealing kits. Otherwise, needle holes made during construction will let in unwanted cold air. (Tips compiled by our in-store camping guru, Shea Gordon.)Prices are good through October 31, 2001.
