Nowadays, trendy tents are structural elements resembling the hollow upper half of a sphere, made from sophisticated synthetic materials. These sophisticated materials used to make these tents make them resistant to all kinds of nature personified weather apart from the wind. When building tents, those unfavorable conditions that the wind has on the tent should be considered, in order to stake the camping tent. These tents should be built in such a way that they have a shape that reduces drag when air moves towards its direction.
The effect of the wind on these trendy tents is entirely different from the impact it has on the wings of an airliner. The curved wings of an aircraft (lift) have an upward force that keeps the aircraft aloft; Thereby protecting it from the wind while the shape of the tent can’t protect it from the slightest winds. In order to stake the camping tent, while building your tent, ensure you use a piece of wood or any other material usually long and slender, pointed at one end to be readily driven into the ground as a support or stake to support the tent.
It is imperative to select a high leveled ground for your tent. This could stake the camping tent if it rains or if you toss a lot in your sleep. Also, if you happen to be camping in a windy environment, endeavor to use supports to stake the camping tent. And don’t forget that different supports work on different soils.
No Universal Stake for all Terrains
Different supports work on different soils, for instance, the small diameter titanium support works well on hard soil, but it isn’t a good support for sand or snowy soil. Also, iron or aluminum support is used when camping on the beach.
Some Stakes Are perfect for some Terrains
Iron or aluminum supports that are used at the beach may actually not be an excellent support when it rains.
There Are Some Regions where No Stakes Work
It is very difficult to fix supports in a rocky or outcrop terrain, mountain climbers and backpackers can testify to these.
