The pole mod intrigues me. I don't really want the weight of some light tent poles, but when the rain is going to be brutal, I really like the extra space that the pullouts can offer. Typically I'll just use the pullout closest to my head on the entry side, but I often don't have much to tie off to where I hang.
I'm considering using trekking poles, as I LOVE porch mode, and most of the dead branches are mossy and rotten 'round here. I could use the trekking poles for this when I'm not in porch mode, but thinking some nano tent poles would be "nicer".
Pros and cons?
