I think this confirms that freestanding tents should always be staked down.Oct 27, 2011 at 1:46 pm #1795675

Having swallowed his pride and dialed 999 , Bob at 2:32AM finally located the assembly instruction sheet conveniently attached to the bottom of the fly.

Lt. William T. Carlson safely lands his prototype ultralight aerial surveillance craft at the Wichita Police Academy parade grounds. After circling 500 feet above the city three times, the test flight was deemed a success. Carlson attributed this to the strength of the nylon fabric and the aluminum struts, and also to the effectiveness of the two helium filled Rihanna blow-up dolls and the MSR Dragonfly turbo power thruster.Oct 27, 2011 at 4:35 pm #1795726

Jeff was relieved that he could reach and activate his PLB. He was soon freed from the stuck zipper that had ensnared him.

"New BPL tent floor scientific strength test against Grizzly attack. Test consists of 11 strong police officers lifting the pitched tent from its floor perimeter, while a 180lb man sits inside. HD high speed professional digital video is later analysed to determine the exact moment of failure, and the site where tears originate from, in order to determine optimum placing of reinforcements for MYOGers. Test is conducted at night during a violent riot or protest to better replicate normal tent usage in field conditions and the stresses induced on a tent occupant during a bear attack."Oct 28, 2011 at 7:35 am #1795911
