Which way should a tent opening face? in Open Discussion - Program Posted January 28, 2009 Thanks all! It seems like there is no actual clear cut answer which is exactly what the other leaders and I thought. When we were told to face the tent east we thought it made sense to catch the morning sun, but we were told that was wrong it was because wind blows north to south. This really confused all of us (2 out of the 3 of us being Eagles) Like I said not a question of dire importance just a question that has been annoying us one because someone determined that a webelo should know the answer and two because we could not find an answer anywhere. As far as which way to sleep I always keep my feet towards the door, I think because that way when I climb in the tent I don't step on my pillow. Lastly, as to which forum this is posted in, this one made the most sense. Being new here I wasn't sure but a open discussion forum seemed most appropriate for a random scouting question. Thanks again for all your help!!
