A: Don’t fool with mother nature. That’s the first rule. Always be aware of your surroundings, be aware of the weather, and lastly, don’t ever think that just because today is a beautiful 70-degree day, tomorrow won’t be tornadoes, and wind storms, and hail. You have to prepare for the worst at all times.
What that means as far as tents go is to do proper staking, to make sure that your tent tops are tight, that any loose fabric is battened down, make sure that when you leave the tent site and the tent is installed that everything is secure as if there was a major storm on the horizon.
