The tent is up. What was supposed to take an hour or two took five, including declaring the old tent unrecoverable, buying a new tent online, getting pizza, picking up the new tent, taping together all the polls, putting it together, going to HD to get better rope and stakes and such, and installing all those. But it shouldn't blow down. Thanks to those who helped (corvi, squishy, fish, and neuro). I'm tired. Time to finish last night's West Wing marathon and lounge. Tomorrow, clean off the hot tub, check the chemicals,move some paving stones, etc. And maybe work on cleaning up the mud we tracked in.
