First "tent" was 2 army ponchos and a bit of string. Summer camp. I was nine. We'd tie off the hoods and use each poncho as a side of an A frame tent. Used twigs for stakes. Dug a trench to handle rain.

This system worked well on a four day backpacking trip. Rained two nights. We stayed dry.

My first real tent was a Eureka Timberline. A classic.
