There is nothing quite like mid 40s and wet feet to realize you should have worn your boots, ask a guy with wet feet, ask me. I am a firm believer in omens and I should have known this was going to be a rough Hershey when I got a call the day before on my way to Hershey.

A good friend of mine had graciously offered to pick a car up for me in Chicago and deliver it to me at Hershey, saving me the trouble, thanks for good friends. The car was a decent car and had an NOS rear clip attached, even better.
I can just imagine that beautiful green metal sailing away, the tragedy of it. I could not be mad at my friend because I have littered the highways of America with pieces of s, like the corner window that flew out of the 51 Coupe.
Anyone who has ever dragged cars out of barns or the woods knows that there is a always a risk of something being lost along the way. But it still sucks when it happens.
So this was how Hershey weekend was starting out. The morning of the swap meet the sky was already opening up when I looked out the window of my hotel, not a good sign.

A frame tent is constructed with a combination of aluminum pipes and fittings to form the tent shape, and then clad with a vynal fabric top and walls. If you removed the element of weather, the tents stand upright by their frame.
But with standard weather patterns, a professional tent company installs stakes, in this case with ballast, as necessary to handle high winds, heavy rains, and the occasional micro-burst or tornado that rake the region. When substituting ballast for stakes the tent rental company has to apply industry standards to determine ballasting required for a safe installation.
Depending on ballast material used, what height it is tied off, and the angle of the rope, the multiple factor is increased or decreased.

In the example using water filled plastic barrels, they are tied too high, and tend to slide easily with side forces. To make up for this, you use a higher multiple to achieve an adequate force.
Sand bags and 5 gallon buckets each represent about 55 pounds of force, which means you would need dozens of them to secure each leg of a 30 or 40 wide tent to the degree a stake would perform.
Large size concrete weights are the best option for large tents.
