Baker tents Sirs, I am a large fan of Baker tents, starting with my grandfathers 1920 version as a kid. Then we had a Sears version in 1960 with a floor. I recently bought one from RK Lodges in MN. The fly needs to be pointed down somewhat in windy conditions, with the back of the tent to the prevailing winds. I use mine in Nevada which is a very windy place. Also two sets of guy ropes staked to the main poles make a big difference. I believe Bill Mason was right. Any tent will work for a 3 day trip. If you want to live outdoors you need something large enough to move around in and stand up, and see out.
