what if you need new poles for the sunshade?
WILLIAM P Attend a large camp out music festival. Plan on staying until the very end and a good while after. There you will find a vast array of abandoned property: tents, tarps, poles of varying lengths and sizes, folding chairs, coolers, and various sundry camping items... sometimes even beer and, almost always, perfectly good food. I scavenge every one I attend and what I don't keep I give away the next festival.
