i have just purchased my tent for burning man, a trango 2 by mountain hardware. its a small tent, 2 man, very rigid and very slimline.
i spoke to 2 different people from different tent stores and they both assured me this thing is bomb proof.
now im well aware that i will need to use different tent stakes to the ones that came with the tent. but am not sure if i can get away with maybe just 4 large stakes, 1 for each corner or will i need to use more? the stakes (and they are stakes, as apposed to 'pegs') that came with the tent are the length of your standard tent peg, id say approx 8 inches.
the fly sheet is never going to get blown away from the inner tent as like i say, its bomb proof. so providing the inner tent and floor dont move the whole thing is pretty sturdy
will the 8inch stakes stick in the playa or is it too dusty?
id really appreciate any advice anyone could give, thankyou.
heres a link to the tent just in case:
