I've had a lot of experience with writer camping and I can tell you that
the biggest mistake people make is to shut tents up too tight with no
ventilation or too little thinking they are keeping in the heat and the
cold out. Remember your body can lose up to a pint of water each night
just from breathing it has to go somewhere. My own scouts usually
completely close all their flaps and doors and experience this problem.
The ones that leave the doors open at least a few inches in a breeze and
more in still air don't have the moisture problem.
