Yeah thats a good idea about the guy wires... we'll do the same. When you say there is an opening in the divider, is it a mesh opening or nothing at all? DaniB: I was referring to covering the rebar stakes... But I may try and find something reflective to put over the tents as well... mylar maybe - ...

PS

PS: We'll be getting a lot of Rebar (and something to cover) for the Eureka Headquarters... as they don't look like the most wind streamlined things out there!

Follow up

Just thought I'd follow up to let you all know what tents I settled on. For the people that wanted a multiroom tent I ended up going for the Eureka Headquarters as it can be totally sealed up... and the 1st room can be for dusty gear etc, 2nd one for dust free sleeping (hopefully!) http://www.google...

Yeah I was looking at thing as well on the sierra site Looks pretty awesome for BM! Reckon it would handle the wind? (Assuming you use rebar) So it looks like the outside part is basically a big fly with 2 sleeping areas (they are removable). I wonder if the sleeping areas have any exposed mesh that...

Thanks... I also have a few Aussie friends that want a "sealed" tent (ie tents with no exposed mesh/ or mesh can be closed via zip) but they aren't willing to splurge as much as me... Anyone recommend any cheaper tents that are in the 3 to 4 man size range... again weight is a factor so they can tak...

gyre,

That North Face VE 25 looks pretty good... pretty light as well which bodes well with checking onto to airplanes!

Not sure that you can seal off that Vestibule area though can you?

Checking out the Vango tents at the moment...

cheers!

Bob, Unfortunately our 1st stop from Sydney Australia will be Reno... and we only have a day there to sort everything out, so don't really want to be running around looking for a tent... Thanks Phil, MSR, the Wind 4 Expedition Tent does look quite good. I saw some pics of your dusty tent last year.....

Yeah you can do a lot with some duct tape... I reckon you could duct tape 10 plastic knives and forks and make something to hijack an aircraft! no wonder they wont let me on with it >>> So are Arctic and Refugee actual tent brands? Oh yeah one more thing to add is that I have a contact in Reno that ...

What's the Perfect Burning Man tent? Sealed 2 room tent!

Hi Burners! Heading to my 2nd Burn this year, we're trekking across from Australia so we'll be out in the desert for about 9 nights... So we're looking to get a very comfortable tent setup going that will survive the wind and DUST! Last time we went we ended up with a decent amount of dust in our te...
