Swamp cool your tent..its easy

Place your tent under a shade structure--
Then if your really into being in your tent in the after noon-
put two ice blocks in a pan and turn on a batterie fan over the ice..wet the surrounding exposed floor area and put on a wet t-shirt.

keep the flaps closed but the zippers open - I always like my tent under a modified parachute stretched over a frame and my vehicle..private-airy and alot like making a fort. :D

Always good advice, even for some job interviews.

I tell you what, Citizen, when I get a wet tee shirt party going in my tent, there is too much heat there for anybody's flaps to stay closed.

If you wet the surrounding floor area, its gonna get nasty....
Drugs may take you down the road to nowhere, but at least its the scenic route.
