Are we speaking hypothetically? :lol:
I had never used one with my tent as I was told, or read somewhere, that a footprint just channeled water under your tent. Evidently this is not the case. More good, practical advice. Thanks!!
Quote from: "Lemming_of_the_BDA"Are we speaking hypothetically? :lol: No, unfortunately. One big hole almost an inch in diameter and a couple of other worn spots. If and when I ever get a chance to use it again I'll see if it can be patched.
"My wife, bless her pea-pickin' Big Bend hatin' heart" :lol: I just reread the initial post, that's pretty dang funny :!: It's too bad the missus don't care for the most wonderful place in the world (just my 2 cents worth)
The first picture is from Enchanted Rock (which is mentioned in the post ).
One of the things that Sierra Designs has done for some of their tents is construct the tent in such a way that with the rainfly, poles, and footprint you can set up the tent without the tent! This allows you to use the tent in warm/dry times and save weight.
My youngest has a tournament in Houston this weekend, so I probably won't get to play at REI until the 19th.
