I didnt look at your ez up gutter system.  What is it that you do?

Gutter hangs under where 2 ez up canopies meet and directs the rain to a downspout (pool hose, I think) which drains into a schmoop bucket.

Worked great!

There's a picture of it somewhere around here, but I can't find it.

seems faulty.  The schmoop bucket is always full of puke....

 

Im guessing a regular plastic gutter?  2 five foot lengths connected together?  then a downspout, and a pool hose that dumps into Spidergawd's tent directly a schmoop bucket?

pretty much, but i bought the 12 footers and cut them down

1; so it would fit in the car

2, they are now adjustable

3, cheaper than 4 five foot sections

 

you can do the same thing with an old trap, the pool fittings and some glue.

 

 

you only need the bucket for inside corners when there are more than 4 ez ups are involved; unless you want to collect the rain water for some reason.

 

pro tip: make sure the side with the spout hangs a little lower than the side w/o.

I've been to mountain jam.  I know how water goes downhill...

they do work awesome :clapping:

 

looking at the probability of a thunderbobby return this year, i am anticipating tarpasaurus being pressed back into action which may change the application of the gutter system...perhaps make it more needed on the periphery of the common areas as opposed the inner seams? :dunno:

i will leave it up to the hippie mcgyvers :D

what we really need for the tarpasaurus is at least 1 tent pole that is at least 3 feet taller than the tallest ez up, and maybe a tennis ball.

 

prolly have that in my garage too. - adds to list

But I like to watch Mel stumble around with a drink in one hand and an umbrella in the other as she drains water off the tarp.   :tapfoot:

I bring a lot of unnecessary shit, well unnecessary until everyone comes into the BANNED CAMP living room, with fine carpeting, nice comfy chairs, cooling ice bands, giant umbrellas that a bunch of people fit under.  Gallons and Gallons of BigDaddy 'canes.   (and I drive a Matrix) :bowl:

My 8' pickup bed and backseat have been full of stuff to bring, when it comes to the point of having to toss out dead whor--s in order to pack more I know I packed enough.

One of the perks of having a pickup, you can heap the bed, put a tarp over it, cinch it down and be on your way to Vibes!     :jamguy:

 

Pretty sure I still have enough stuff behind the seat to be comfortable enough as is.   :eek:

that's why the call it car camping.

no real extra effort load/unload load/iunload.

 

but do fell free sit on the ground this year.

I agree, Feck.
