Choosing a Location
Now, you can’t just pitch the tent in any random spot. You must find a nice flat area. It would be even better if the flat ground was higher than the area around it. This way, if it rains, there is a lesser chance of your tent flooding. The tent should not be pitched right underneath trees because falling branches might ruin the tent. Also if there’s a thunderstorm, you don’t want to risk being hit by lightning. Don’t pitch your tent too close to other tents. You want to be at least 20 feet away from other tents.
Preparing the Area
Once you’ve found the area, clean it up a little. The ground should not have any stones or anything sharp.
Take the tent out of the tent bag and remove the pegs.
Look for the restraining band. Once you pull it, the tent should automatically pop open. Find the position in which you would like the tent door to be and turn it so that it is the right way up.
Take the pegs and place them through the loops of the ends of the tents. This way, the tent will be secured into the ground. Take a hammer and push the pegs into the ground at a 45 degree angle. The angle should be towards the tent since this is the most secure way to make sure the wind doesn’t pull them out. If you have extra pegs, you can use them for extra security.
Using the Guy Ropes
The guy ropes should already be attached to the tent. You can place them into the ground at the ends of the tent and adjust them so that the ropes are nice and taught.
Once you are completely done with everything, look at the tent to see if it looks normal. Your guy ropes should be secure. The pegs should be deep into the ground. If the tent looks weird, go ahead and fix it right away.
