Ha! I actually don't mind cooking outside in the heat and humidity... my issue is the bugs! I draw the line at prepping food without some sort of shield against mosquitos. So I think if I get a shelter with mesh/screen walls I'll be okay. Well, and some sort of rain cover. We were planning on going camping this weekend, but it's supposed to be pretty serious weather, so who knows! I love the idea of a popup, but I just wouldn't sleep. I need something more than canvas between me and noises outside - I hear everything in the entire campground and it keeps me up!
