Shangri-La 1 pitching tips?
I tried out the Shangri-La 1 today and I had a hard time making it nice and tight. Any tips? I had the inner net and fly. I also had to use 10 stakes as opposed to the 6 I thought it needed.
Practice pitching any shelter many times not only makes the pitch better, it makes it quicker and easier to pitch.I could go into details on the Shangri-La, but I suspect you'll figure it out quicker if you just pitch it a few times.
here's the main problem i have. the fly and the net don't match up in the rear. the fly is either too large or the net is too small. i have guylines pulling the poles back too.picture: http://i.imgur.com/WXD3K.jpg
I read that some have used a carabiner to attach the net tent to the fly near the top of the poles. Maybe I'm confusing the details....
i have a clip on mine, but it doesn't really fit snugly. i suppose it's a measure to prevent the fly from slipping.
I can't see what the problem is from the picture.I have pitched an older version(The Hut?) many times without issue.You don't have to stake all points, buy it is recommended if you expect strong winds.I wonder if you have the wrong inner for your shelter?
