Well, the tent that served us well for 10 years finally gave up the ghost. The tent pole broke when Ennie was bending it into place.
One thing I learned (well, I knew it before too) is that you can’t force things like tent poles. They are meant to bend only so far. We have a repair kit and duct tape but the ferrules are too small it seems; and duct tape wouldn’t hold since it’s something that meant to be under stress the entire time. No, I didn’t even try.
Ennie’s off in Athens picking up a new tent.
