How to Make a Tent?

To make a quick makeshift tent you need two tarps, heavy-duty rope, four stakes and large rocks. The first step is tying of the frame. Make use of heavy-duty rope and tie it between two trees. Tie the rope high enough to avoid cramping inside the tent. The ground where you build your tent should be free from the pebbles, rocks or twigs. Hang your tarps and secure them one by one. Secure the walls of your tent to the ground firmly.
