Recently we went camping and had some friends tag along with their 6 kids. They didn't have tents, so we allowed them to use our family tent and 4 person tent. Biggest mistake! #1- It rained and was muddy. #2- They have no respect for other's equipment. #3- They did nothing to help cook or clean. #4- The 4 person tent (which the 2 adults used) may be ruined! The small tent looked like a can of cola blew up inside and the outside got it too. Then their friends dog desided to run thru the tents in the middle of the nite getting mud everywhere! Haven't had a chance to set up the family tent yet, hopefully it isn't damaged too. So remember to just say NO if you like your equipment.
