How to dry a tent after a camping / hunting trip

A simple way of how to dry a tent (and clean it out) after camping. The base of the tent is against the wall, and the top of the tent is hanging from the ceiling.

If you’re like me, what happens is you go on a camping/hunting weekend with the guys, and inevitably, it either rains on the last day, or it’s simply that the dew from the morning has made your tent wet on the outside. The dew doesn’t make your tent wet on the inside; no, that’s the beer you spilled. Anyway, you are normally forced to pack up camp before you can dry your tent. Not to mention the fact that since there were no women present on the hunt, you failed to take off your shoes when you went back and forth in the tent. So, your tent is filled with little bits of pine straw and leaves.

So, How to Dry a Tent?

A simple solution to this dilemma that’s been perplexing mankind for generations, is to put up a few hooks or nails in the carport or garage of your house. You can then hang the tent sideways, with the door facing down. This lets all the debris fall forward, including that flashlight you forgot was in there. It also gives you a chance to let the tent dry out.
