I think your missing out on a special opportunity. True friends live by the creed "What happens in the desert, stays in the desert......"Rangers will come into your camp to check for things like hammocks tied to trees, food left out of bear boxes, and yes, number of tents. I would simply not set up the 3rd tent until it is getting dark. Then take it down in the morning. They walk around in the daylight. Generally, they send a volunteer around half the time to look around for them. Then he will radio down that something terrible is going on, and they send up a real ranger. Or, he takes a picture, and they send you a ticket in the mail.Ask them a stupid question like " If one of us gets hurt up there, how long will it be until a ranger might come by that could help us?"
"Don't ask, don't tell."They probably care more about how many people rather than tents.
