Sometimes the only way to know if a tent is worth its salt is in extreme situations. If it doesn't work, don't use it again.

Canadian Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Spread on Triscuits. Salmon was caught by my father-in-law, and then home smoked following a maple syrup and brown sugar rub. Grind up, mix with cream cheese, and there you have it. Mmmm...

Eric;
Who cares about your photography skills. I want some of what's being served in that photo.
Actually, I do a smoked salmon ritual every year for the usual family gatherings, and it sounds similar to that which you posted, at least in a general sense. But your application is very nice. Sometimes, the wife and I take fresh baked cookies into the wilderness, and that is always good.
Cheers,
Herm

I'm not so sure. How you got a photo of yourself when both of your hands are busy with food is a pretty amazing photographic skill in my book. :)

Early morning view from my camp above and shot of my campsite at Ambition Lake in Blackcap Basin.
I prefer to sleep under the stars, so only use a tent if it looks like rain. I misjudged the weather this time. Sprinkles woke me up at 2am, so I quickly set up my tent, and the skies opened up just as I was climbing in. Thunder, lightning and strong winds battered my tent, but it kept me dry. Strange weather for August.

It looks more like Mark is sitting in the midle of a backcountry meth lab of some kind. :D
