Setting up a M.A.S.H. Military Tent (S1E1)
We're setting up an old Vietnam era tent in this video. It was fairly simple to do with two people.
Step one - Mow the lawn!
Step two - Lay out the tent.
Step three - Hammer in the stakes about half the distance of the corresponding 5 foot poles. (So, about 2 1/2 feet from the tent.)
Step four - Attach each pole's string to the stake, just enough to hold the pole up.
Step five - Raise the center ridge pole.
Step six - tighten everything down.
