While camping in Kentucky at the Canal Campground (awesome campground BTW) we came across this tent. Hey…it was almost 100 degrees that weekend! You gotta do what you gotta do. Right? It was making a heck of a rucus too! Dave.

That is awesome. Great use of the port hole or whatever they call it on the new tents. I love that.

Clever bit of Yankee engineering (my duct tape would have been neater though!). I wonder how well it works?

We got out of tenting one cold night on the mountain when the warm air being blown into the tent by our Zodi heater condensed on the tent and it started raining inside! (and we were still freezing). That and the horse stampede that luckily went down the hill instead of up the hill towards us.

You gotta do what you gotta do !!

I saw a window shaker hanging out the drivers side window of a cargo van last week in FrontierTown in OC.

I saw a set up like that a couple of years ago and wished I had thought of it when I was still tent camping. It was 100+ then too.[emoticon]

HEY!!
I did that prior to my "TC" days. Didn't work so hot, no punn intended.

Staying out at Moses Lake in Easter WA during the summer, I tried that same thing. Moses Lake is the hottest part of our state in summer, temps normally go over 100 in the day. When the sun hit that tent, you were up! Didn't matter how late you stayed up, how hungover you were, you got cooked out!

Unfortunately, the AC in the door trick didn't work so good, as the tent was able to create more BTUs than the AC. It only bought me about 30 minutes to an hour of extra sleep. The next year I brought a big 'ole blue tarp and stuck over the tent as a sun shade. Still didn't work, so the next year I bought my first TC and truck.

And the rest is history....

It doesn't work for me in my shop either, for the same reason. Tin roof is quite a heater! But the main reason it won't work in that tent is the tent color. If the tent were white, it'd work a LOT better!
