I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up a tent fan this year. Waking up in the morning in a sweltering hot tent was not pleasant. They generally have an LED light on them too.
Alex, I bought something like this last year and it was TREMENDOUS. sweltering hot tents are unbearable. The one I bought is a Coleman and it attaches with a magnet. We also moved it to clip to the top of our canopy at night so the LED's could light everything up.
this one attaches by caribeener (sp?) I believe. It was just an example though, I'll be doing some shopping around. Glad to hear it worked out for you. One of these days I'll buy a canopy, but for now I'll just wander into random sites and make friends with people who already own one, haha.

I suggest spending roughly $90 on a more sturdy canopy, one that can withstand the winds of the gorge. I've gone several years without, but last year a bunch of people in my crew went in on one and it was indispensible. Protects from rain AND direct, beating sunlight... Saved my hash, honestly.
The one we have still took a beating from the wind, but it was still standing at the end of the weekend.
I've decided I'm never buying anything in Canada again. Even the cheapest and crappiest of those canopies start at $130.
Walmart in Spokane at 7am will happen once again if I make the trip this year.
Is this actually true? I want to start collecting some camping supplies.. But I don't want to end up paying more than I should.. Right now I don't have anything at all, but I've been reading extensively on the the subject on the Bonnaroo boards, so I know what I want to get.
