More vacation stuff, I know.
So we took our well worn tent with us to Canada. It had made the trip before, and was a great little tent. Then the rains came. The rains came down, and the water came in! The tent was leaking all over us. There is nothing good about being woken up in the middle of the night by cold water dripping on your face. Then you roll out of the way, and put your face into a wet pillow. Luckily, my sleeping bag was very water proof, so I just sunk deeper until all that was left was a lump in the bag. Nick was not so lucky, and had a bath while he slept.
When morning came, we attempted to fix the tent. Which is when we found out how lucky we were it didn’t collapse on us. For collapse it did in the morning.
Since this happened the first night of our week vacation, and there was more rain predicted for the week, we were stuck buying a new tent. Our options were few, so we ended up with a bigger tent than expected.
