Wow, drainage must suck out there. We got 3 inches in less than 6 hours the other night, and everything was fine as soon as the rain stopped falling.
Yes, drainage sucks. Most of the “dirt” out here is the consistency of ten-year-old Portland cement. My tent stakes are pieces of 1/2″ round steel rod, 18″ long. And I *still* bend one every time I put the tent up…
Thanks for the comment on the image. It’s one of my favorites at the moment.
Awesome stuff! I thought of you tonight, caradoc–we had a thunderstorm with just an incredible amount of lightning. I got some shots that I’m going through now. I kept thinking “man, caradoc would be all over this” hehe
