At first, nobody understood completely what the caretakers at Francois Peron National Park were thinking when they installed big, confusing tent platforms. However, after some collective brainstorming/engineering, we figured out how to attach our tent to the grated floor!
- A bit of rope
- Scissors or a knife
- A smaller person (such as Lindsey) to crawl under the platform and feed the rope back up
- A drink to admire your handiwork afterwards
We have to admit, the view was the best on the whole campground! Good on ya, National Park Service!
One last word of advice: don’t drag your tent over the grated floor. It’s quite sharp, and can tear the cloth (as we’ve found out the hard way). Luckily, Claudia came to the rescue yet again 😉
