Dez, I often go on short camping trips (bicycle tours), so I know about sleeping in a tent. Those sounds in the night I enjoy too. Even the sound of rain on the tent roof rocks me to sleep.

If your tent is made out of synthetic materials I don't think it will rot. Most tents nowadays are synthetic, anyway the ground sheet is (a sort of plastic)

POST 14 (DAY 20, Sunday 2020.08.30)
[Morning Entry]

Past three days I've been having vivid dreams.. pretty unusual for me because my dreams are usually hard to remember.. the timing coincides with the leveling of the tent platform AS WELL AS the shift in my dietary regimen.. so maybe its one or both of those.. speaking of which I FEEL GREAT!.. these past three days of eating less/lighter have brought me much mental clarity and emotional stability.. I find myself more moody when my belly is full, and I would attribute this pattern to the idea of ego.. basically (I believe), when my belly is empty, I feel more vulnerable and thus more likely to be a kind/gentle person.. so I surmise that the opposite must be true when my belly is full--the arrogance rises.. these past three nights of sleep have been more cozy than strugglesome--when the platform was angled (with feet level four inches higher than head level, I could feel myself almost fighting to stay asleep.. Now, I wake up refreshed and ready for the day.. though honestly still pretty sore in my hands.. Which means, my exercise regimen could probably use a bump.. =D diet & exercise--natures medicine..
