Travels with my Bell Tent – Chapter 2 – The Set Up
Setting up a tent is the sunshine is great fun, the start of a wonderful adventure … in the rain it’s a horribly stressful and argument inducing nightmare! Well that’s most tents, the complicated fiddly kind with lots of bendy poles, noggings and complex frames, not so with the bell tent. This tent is so simple one person could put it up by themselves, very easily.
Follow our step by step instructions on how to:
1, Find an open green space, this lovely forest in Somerset should do it
2. Get the bag out of the carrier, it’s simple, you’ll have a bag of poles, a bag of pegs and a tent. Pull the tent out so it sits on it’s ground sheet, this should be pulled tightly and flat.
3. Peg in the ground sheet (eye) and the bottom of the canvas (hook)
7. Use the guy ropes, pull as tightly as possible and peg! Hey presto, Bell tent is done!
8. Enjoy the bell tent, make it as glamourous as possible, we bought all of our equiptment from www.belltent.co.uk and couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
