Tim Beck asks: Just finished upgrading my pup tent. Out with the old rope and in with new paracord. Out with the old heavy tent stakes and in with lightweight aluminum stakes. Might upgrade the poles but I need to come up with a idea. The poles have to be lighter and just as ridged and still collapsible. Any ideas? Was also thinking about getting a bug net for the tent. How well do they work?
- Don’t carry poles, use branches found outside.
- Use the paracord as a support beam. Tie in between two trees or even rocks.
- If you use hiking/treking poles, just put them to use as the tent poles.
- Get a hammock,
