Hi Kath - glad you've made it out with the tent. You'll be a lot quicker and more comfortable with the set up next time, those awnings go up pretty quick once you have the technique sorted. First attempt in the dark in a rush with the awnings - I can imagine that must have been stressful.
If the awnings seem a bit saggy, it may mean the poles need extending up at the feet to make them a little longer, just an inch or so maybe, and pull everything tigher with the guys too. In your pic it looks like the foot of the EA pole needs to come in closer to the tent in line with the CA one, this may solve the sagging issue.
Sometimes just the undulations in the ground will leave some ripples in the fabric that you can't get rid of.
Enjoy your camp and take your time packing up, again the first few times you need to find a routine for folding and packing the awnings etc.
I think you're right about the camping and autism point with the familiar base of the tent making it easier to cope with new locations, he has always coped well with going to new sites.

Hi All
Just had our first camp in our Karsten 325 burgundy. Would love to post you guys a photo but I haven't figured out how to do it. Can anyone point me in the right direction and I'll put some photos on at the weekend.

Tony

Yes, I am sometimes able to do this! You need to put your photos on photo bucket or similar and then when you write a post, click on the little square that has mountains and the sun in it. Then you need to type the internet link for your photos.

Hope the first camp went well for you Tony, and Kath, I hope you got on okay with yours in the end....

As Kath says, I use photobucket. I make the folder in photobucket private. I then click copy in photobucket, then go back to this page, click on the square mountain icon above and click paste. You don't see the picture, just a load of random text, but if you click preview post below you will see how it looks before posting
