My tent is like a rock in bad weather. Stake it good and get good
strong poles and a period pavilion will serve you well. At one event
my tent stood its ground while a yurt flipped (the owner was dumb
enough to forget all his stakes at home but one and thought that it he
used just one that might do the trick) and a larger a-frame came down
when the ridgepole snapped. The metal stakes at the top of my poles
were seriously bent (nothing a good hammer and anvil can't fix) but
otherwise my stuff was dry, the canvas held firm and I was nice and
safe. Now I will admit that with no floor, water can rush through it
like a river, but I know I'll have a roof over my head.
