So we are in our 3rd season with our wall tent set up. As stated before thanks to everyone contributing to Ghosties Tent Tricks  thread! :tup:  When I moved tent up to shop to clean from being up all winter I decided to try the ratchet strap through the pole fittings to keep frame together as i solely set up the tent to keep frame from sliding apart.  It worked so well we did it this week at our elk camp. But it doubled as more easy hanging for wet towels and clothes. It also keeps the stuff off of the walls which allows better faster drying . Think I remember someone relaying this idea on here or maybe I had to much ICE. :chuckle:

@HuntinCouple, good point about kids and propane. I guess I was more asking if anyone has left a camp up midweek unattended, have they ever had theft issues. Should have used specific wording. The 14 day rule doesn't bother me.

@Ghosthunter, I like your idea of cutting out a hole. Its more work than I wanted to do, but probably worth it.

Thanks!

Any tips on fixing a bent frame?

Bent pole, heat it and bend it back.😉

If it breaks get a new pole.🤣

Solid tactic. Hoping that this comment finds it's way to @Pathfinder101 soon. LOL

Waddaya talkin' about "bent poles"...?  My tent door closes... :chuckle:

When I had the wall tent I left it up all summer and had no problems even left food and drink available in the food boxes and would be gone at times for 10 days to 2 weeks.

Someone asked about leaving a camp and security awhile back.

I have done it. Left it up came back to west side for three days. A lot depends on where you are and what your camp looks like from the road. If it looks vacant you might have problems. We ever had. I think for several reasons.

Battery lights. You can leave the on for days with no danger.
Leave a radio playing.
Solar lights that light up after dark.
And Brad. We leave brad there. Good weather around the fire pit, Bad weather under a tarp at cook shack with his back to road.
Or in a tent with light on.

We had folks walk up and talk to him. Put a vest on your Brad.

When this smoke goes away we need to get together for a firepit/bbq/pole-bending party in my backyard.  I wanted to do it last weekend but we'd all be in the hospital if we had... :dunno:
