we bought our 2 man tent about 5 years ago at target for $20. used it at bm '07 and it worked awsome. we never staked it because we were unfamiliar with wind conditions. when the wind picked up we were already at camp so we just slid it under one of the shade structures and threw a cooler in it for ...

get a tent from target for $20. the smaller tents catch less wind thus need less protection from it. throw a cooler in it when the winds pick up.

shade?

is there a specific time frame at which you intend to show films or are they going all day?

my camp mates at the last event were known to go to bed rediculously early. myself, i've been known to watch 6 movies in a week. this is something i would hit up myself when my mates have all tucked in. :P

vintage motorcycle goggles ftw.


you can find really nice ones on ebay for less than $50, or you can get crappy one's for around $5. some of them are frankensteined together to refunctionalize broken one's, also uber cheap.
