Two men tent together--the front rank man and his rear rank file. Alter

pitching your tent, get inside and level off the ground. Cut a drain

around the tent to carry the water off; this should be done even in

pleasant weather. In case you do not trench your tent and a sudden rain

comes, your blankets may get wet and you will probably lose some

much-needed rest and sleep. If the tent pins will not stay in the

ground, cut some small sticks to a length of about twelve inches and use

them as tent pins.
