6 Man Tent: Dome or Tunnel

Tents are categorized as freestanding which stand up on their own and staked so they can stand upright.

Freestanding tents often come in a dome shaped design which are the strongest tents and are often used in four season tent construction. The dome shape makes sure that no snow will accumulate on part of the tent so it can be used in winter.

Many three-season tent models use a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Domed tents are much easier to setup than staked tents so you need to consider that when buying a tent. Also what kind of weather do you need the tent for?

Omg I agree with Giovanna! I could survive wihotut the AC n deal with the heat sometimes. But duuuuuude, the lack of proper toilet is ROUGH! I remember when I went to The Island School back in Fall 2005 and we had our 8 day kayak trip around the cape of Eluethera. We had a 2 day solo where we were dropped off at Lighthouse Beach 200 yards between you and the next person and you were left there alone for the next 48 horus with a 5 x 7 tarp, string, emergency whistle, water, trail mix, journal, sleeping bag, and that's pretty much it. they took away our watches too. oh and no flashlights or way to build a fire. anyway, so building a shelter and being alone wasnt the worst part. digging holes in the sand/ coppice and avoiding getting bittten by bugs, pinched by crabs, falling over, prickles, etc and nothing to wipe with . yeah that SUCKED. and you had to stick a long stick in the spot you went in afterward to make sure you didn't accidentally dig the same spot up again, lol. so after 2 days when we were picked up and walking along the beach you'd see what seemed like hundreds of sticks poking up along the beach for miles where everyone had gone, lol. it was pretty funny :P anywho, i rambled, sorry. but just found i could relate to the annoying lack of bathroom situation :P love and miss you lots! :) ttfn
