    Lol, I found packing up the dry tent was challenging enough.

    No tent is.
    But the room makes up for that! my helinox max con w legs affords me lots of room and I still have room even for the Savanna chair STILL inside the tent....then the garage for the bike/cooking on those yucky days!

    As far as the wet thing goes. I know I travel a little heavy but I carry my tent, tarp, hatchet and poles in one of my waterproof bags. If its wet, it just stays wet but I don't need to worry about clothes, food or anything else getting wet because of it. I try to dry up as much as I can by wiping the tent off with a microfiber cloth. Keeping all my stuff I don't want wet in a separate waterproof bag makes it much easier on me. I will dry it out good when its dry outside or if I am in a hotel. Again, I understand that this is not the only solution but the one I use.

    nope...even talked with the guy later. He paid full price for it and needed money to pay his uncle for rent. Of course I did not tell that I would have paid WAAAAAAAAAY more for it.
    So very happy with my setup now.
    Next will be a KIPMOTO trailer from the island.

    I guess I misread it. Sounded to me as though you bought it from the uncle who was owed money by the tent owner.

    I drop the poles, pull the pegs and stuff it in the compression bag as it lays, so when you deploy it, comes out long ways. To deploy, reverse, I put the 1st peg in one of the vestibule corners and pull the bag along my axis. 5 minutes.
    You don't need to fold it. Just stuff it. Do the same when it's wet, but as soon as I get home or the next dry day, I set it to dry really well.
