Here we are at Memorial weekend. I've owned my pup for about 2 months now and there hasn't been 3 days in a row without at least a 30% chance of rain. We've been getting rain 5 or 6 days in a row for over a month. I live in central Kansas and although I'm confident my pup is fairly water tight, I only have 3 choices, leave it up to get rained on for several days and hope the sun comes out long enough to dry it out before storage, do ovenighters, and tear it down as soon as its daylight and gets a few minutes of sunlight or tear it down and store it wet, I have no garage to reopen it in and dry it out. This is very frustrating. I have awakened this morning after a great nights sleep, watching the sun come up, only to look at the radar and see a storm heading straight towards me from the West. It's not a big storm, and there doesn't appear to be anything more behind it, but storms brew fast in Kansas as the day heats up. I've got about 2 hours to make my decision, leave it up and stay in it and let the storm hit me & check for leaks. Then let the sun dry it out and stay in it again tonight or tear it down before the rain gets here. Being new to pups and very glad I got one in such good shape, I DON'T want to screw it up and get mold or rot. I'm set up on some family property that is surrounded by trees, and for being in town, It's kind of remote, I can't be seen from any street or passers by and I can leave it set up until it drys out if I have to, I just don't want to. If I leave it set up today and it does like last week, I'll have to leave it set up in the rain until next Thursday before it will be sunny enough to dry it out so I can store it. I hate to sound like a cry baby, but my frustration with the rain has me seriously irritated on a such beautiful morning. I'm going to make some breakfast and watch the radar. I've gathered up things for a speedy pack up, and it takes me about 25 minutes to tear it down. This is my 5th over night camp out since owning it. I'm good at tearing down in a hurry, lol!! I hope everyone has a fun & safe holiday.
