I went with this guy --> http://www.springbar.com/explore/compact/compact_tent.html Not too expensive, but probably heavy, just ordered it. Least expensive one they make, but I figure a $40 tent probably isn't what I want. I went to REI where they sell all the meshy stuff and those were even upwards...

Fire_Moose- I've heard of the bedsheet and safety pin bit, sounds like a good way to go.

Second year! First time Solo
