2. Because you obviously can't stake it in the living room, use a vacuum cleaner, boots and chairs to stake it. Realize that this is less than optimal.
3. Make sure cats are in the room. It always helps when they are in the way.
4. Puzzle over obscure directions. "Put pointed end toward wind?"
5. Cut the stake rope too short. Get mad. Then realize you can always get new rope. Also realize that your math skills might need work.
6. Talk to yourself. "Where's the pocket? I don't see a pocket. Am I really going to have to resort to Youtube?"
7. As each "stake" comes loose, contort self into acrobatic poses to fix while holding up the trekking poles that form the frame.
8. Think that maybe you should have stuck with the seven tents you already have.
9. Hold breath as tent stands up.
10. Imagine the possibilities.
Tent: Skyscape X from Six Moon Designs. Sets up with two trekking poles and five stakes. Weighs 15 ounces. I can sit up in it and bring my pack inside. It has two doors and a vestibule. According to reviews it does well in rain and wind (I would not try it in snow). I most certainly did not receive this tent for free. Will write a review if summer ever comes.
