Hmmm...I didn't know that the scout camp had them, although it
does seem natural.

This is where having a truck comes in handy.  *grin*  I have 
avoided buying a large tent or pavillion prior to this because
I can only depend on myself when it comes to putting the darn 
thing up.  Friends are great for help, but it can be pretty
"catch as catch can" sometimes at events, and besides, if I 
always depend on them to help me set it up they will soon 
start to avoid me.  Although the "if you don't help, don't
expect to use it" tactic is attracitve.

This is an excellent idea!!!  Wow.  Mindblowing even!  I will 
definatly look into it.  But, I still want one of my own.
