What do you do to get a breeze?
I suppose it is worth it to just use a powered outlet tent site and
pay the extra, toting along a portable A.C. or some fans.
Any great ideas here?
Thanks

I hate camping in hot weather. I've never taken anything along. just open up all the windows and doors in the tent. Hard to sleep when you got sweat rolling down your face. usually around 2 or 3 am it finally cools off.

I can't sleep when it's hot. My brother-in-law, my son, and myself took our camper down to a new lease this past weekend and when we hooked the generator up that night it ran but no power in the camper. We checked everything on the camper before leaving and the generator ran but we didn't hook the generator to the camper to see if that worked. As it turns out something's wrong with it and not the camper. We opened all windows and it got down to the low 60's but it was hot as hades when we went to bed and it took me a while to fall asleep. If there's no air I'm out.

I don't camp in hot weather. I'm a early spring or late fall camper. Maybe this weekend would be nice with the temps dropping.

Won't do it anymore myself either.
Just makes it too miserable.

I have seen fishboy bring an air conditioner and run some duct work into the tent.
Pretty darn neat.

i used to take a smaller "shop" fan with me when I camped with the boy scouts.. Even "warm" air circulating beats no air at all..

Kids used to say my tent looked like a balloon fixing to pop..

We have a couple of battery powered fans that we found at Wal-Mart. they are square and can be hung from a hook or stand up on a folding base. I think they run on 8 D batteries and push quite a bit of air. Only had to use for a few hours in the really hot evenings, enough to take the edge off.
