The North Pole Tent is only 12.5 feet high as compared to 16.5 for the Star Tent. The North Pole Tent is 30 feet by 30 feet and the Star Tent is 21.5. They both are six sided with a center pole.............
Funny how hind-sight is, I thought MozyBonz's tent was much larger! Now I'm really anxious to set up this new tent to see how much real estate it actually covers, and how much standing head-room area it has. The lower height of the North Pole Tent might actually lend itself to a lower wind resistance................
Hmmmmmm.......... this is all very interesting

Our campmates camped next to you last year..........little travel trailer and the mobile theater ....(we were right across the street). Sounds like we may run into you again next year! If you drop me an email off-thread, I'll email a couple of pics I have of "the old neighborhood" and your tent from last year's big dust storm.
I was wondering if someone can post a set instructions for the above mentioned structures? I will be attending myself so want to make sure this might be something a first timer can accomplish.
BTW, I am only 5' 1" and female - hopefully my height will not prevent me from being able to set it up.
Any other advice for shade solution that can easily be set up by one person is appreciated.
by using heavier stakes, possibly extra stakes & cord,
Maybe bring a sturdy bucket you can stand on to reach corner poles.

I sit on it to pull rebar (I'm 60, so I need to sit while I pull rebar), and the stools are also excellent for standing on to reach stuff that's just out of reach. A plastic five-gallon bucket is higher, but I'm heavier than some 5' 1" women, so I prefer the stool. :-> A bucket or stool is excellent advice I should have taken years ago.
Remember - everyone tells you what works for them, and they assume it'll work for you, too.
