* If you are new to using a tent, it is not enough to simply buy a new tent, or borrow a tent. Make sure that you buy “seam sealer”, and apply it to all the stitched seams in the tent, especially the ones along the floor. Water works it’s way through the seams and will find a way into your tent if the seams are not sealed. Also, make sure you have a thick plastic tarp to place underneath your tent, cut to the outline of your tent’s floor surface.
