candle lantern vs. condensation? on 10/15/2007 19:04:07 MDT Print View

Last week, we got in a wet snow storm in a BD Mega Light we were using, raining condensation down on us.

Besides assuring better ventilation, I am belatedly wondering if I should have rigged up a candle lantern to save the tent's rep among my companions. Anybody can speak from experience on this? Would that help a little or alot? I mean, could it dispel the fog and misery in that situation??

Cut a kitchen sponge in half, it will help you mop up the condensation. Setting up in a breeze should also help. I never liked the idea of sleeping with a candle latern going. CO poisoning comes to mind.

A tarp shines in really humid enviroments.
