Swamp cool your tent..its easy

Place your tent under a shade structure--
Then if your really into being in your tent in the after noon-
put two ice blocks in a pan and turn on a batterie fan over the ice..wet the surrounding exposed floor area and put on a wet t-shirt.

keep the flaps closed but the zippers open - I always like my tent under a modified parachute stretched over a frame and my vehicle..private-airy and alot like making a fort. :D

Always good advice, even for some job interviews.

I tell you what, Citizen, when I get a wet tee shirt party going in my tent, there is too much heat there for anybody's flaps to stay closed.
