Is that really a tent on the deck? Is that some kind of test or is it somebody staying in it?

UM DUH. I probably should have read Ryan's Observer comments before I posted :rolleyes:.

Did anyone end up sleeping in that tent?

You couldn't pay me enough to do that. Sleeping in a tent in 35mph winds with a snow wall is scary enough, and the consequences for failure are even scarier. Now do it on the exposed deck in 70+mph winds. Maybe if you anchored it to the railing.

The tent was anchored to tent stakes and nothing else. It was suppose to be a "real world" test experience. Given more time, we would have dead man buried them but we tried the regular method. So, tie offs to the deck or other structures. Four people "slept" in the four tents although talking to them the next day or the morning we were taking their tents down, no one slept much but maybe intermittent cat naps.
