  1. #1 Rain Man
    This shelter should have more fame than it does, I think! After all, it's the first one on the AT, NOBO.
  2. #2 Kerosene
    Interesting design.

    I spent one long night under this shelter in the late 90s. Arrived late in the rain. Shelter was full and we didn't (for some crazy reason) want to set up tents. So we used our packs around the perimeter and spent the night under the shelter.

    The snorer above us was quite possibly the loudest I've ever heard.
