The neat thing about a permanent structure would be the opportunity to set 
aside part of it for a sort of barracks. Those arriving in the middle of the 
night could just bunk down until morning.  They wouldn't wake anyone while 
trying to figure out where to set up, let alone while setting up.  There 
too, it would be nice to go to sleep after a long ride.
