Hi Deems, and thanks.  The shelter I was using is the Stealthtarp, made by
me.  I need to improve the design a bit though, as during a rain the walls
sunk all in on me and I didn't have much room left.  I'm thinking of adding
a "flying butress" type of connection on it, to help support it when it gets
wet, but then again I wasn't expecting the rain and didn't have it very
taut. .

I would think the Squall would be a lot better in the wind; I know Henry has
put a lot of work into his designs for the kind of conditions we have in the
PNW.   What problems did you experience, and did you have it pitched tautly
