Storing Tents

When you get home from a trip, set up your tent or hang it on the clothesline until it is completely dry and clean. Then, roll it up and put it back in the bag it came from. Be SURE all of the poles, stakes, ropes, rain fly, footprint, etc. are in the bag with it. NOTHING is worse than getting out away from everywhere and discovering that you are missing a tent pole, or the rain fly.

I keep my tents in big Rubbermaid bins, labelled on the ends and top as to how many people it will sleep. If it needs a separate tarp, that goes in the bin as well.
