A few years ago, I solo camped at L. Ellen Wilson in GNP. I arrived early in the afternoon, so I had lots of time to hang out and watch the mountains erode. A mother mountain goat and her two kids showed up, attached to me big time, and wouldn't allow me to stray more than 10' from them (but no closer than 5"). They followed me wherever I went--to the food prep area, to the open air toilet, to the lake shore to get water, everywhere. I was using a Squall 2, which has the long front guyline, and shorter side and corner guys. All night long those pesty goats circled my tent, and they seemed to trip over each guy line on every lap. They never seemed to get it figured out. I was certain that the tent wouldn't hold up to this for the whole night, but it actually did. The goats never seemed to sleep, although I managed a few hours myself. Mom was probably in love with me, so she had an excuse. But there certainly was NO "guyline tripping prevention with kids."
Sorry-that story just had to be told, given the subject line...
