2. use duct tape to tape the poles from both tents together instead of zip ties. it's stronger.

3. if you're on concrete put buckets filled with water under the four corner tent poles and then tie the handle of the bucket to the tent frame. if not invest in good guide lines.

4. if you only have sides to one of your easy ups setup the sides in a L shape so they block the wind.

5. drink more beer
We've gotta "Gutters" thanks to Finney for the EZ-Ups. We've also got walls and awnings for both EZ-Up and buckets to hold down the fort. The beer is a given!! Woo hoo!!

Tropical Storm Ernesto Update:





Horry County Moves to OPCON 3




Conway, South Carolina – Horry County has moved to a Level 3 Operating Condition (OPCON 3) in preparation of Tropical Storm Ernesto. OPCON 3 means that the storm poses a significant threat to Horry County. County officials have had continual discussions with South Carolina Emergency Management, coastal communities including local municipalities, and will continue to monitor the situation closely.



The National Hurricane Center currently is forecasting Ernesto to make landfall in Charleston as a tropical storm midday Thursday, although there is a potential for it to intensify into a hurricane. Expected effects for Horry County could be a storm surge of three to four feet, which includes high tide, beach erosion with a more significant impact for the Cherry Grove and Garden City Beach areas. Three to five inches of rain is forecasted with the potential of seven inches locally, which will produce flooding, and the potential for isolated tornadoes. Horry County could start to feel the impact of the storm late Wednesday evening into early Friday morning, with the greatest impact occurring midday on Thursday.



In preparation for the storm, Horry County anticipates a partial activation of their Emergency Operations Center (E.O.C.) tomorrow morning.



With the anticipated rain amounts, citizens should start to survey their property to mitigate the potential of flooding like making sure storm drains and gutters are clear of debris. It is also advised that people avoid moving water, flooded areas and downed power lines.



Citizens should also have their family hurricane plans in place; including items that may be needed like water, batteries, flashlights, etc. Additional hurricane information can be found on Horry County’s website at www.horrycounty.org. On the right side of the home page, you will see a link called Hurricane Information. This link contains information on how to prepare for an emergency, evacuation routes and maps, re-entry information, shelters, etc.

I think I would just drink straight from the bottle, cause if yer holdin the tent with one hand and holdin the turkey with the other, then you have no way to refill the glass. Just hold the bottle, when its gone you wont need to worry about no storm, you will never know it even happened!![/quote]
I like the way you think.
