Not inadvertently but memories of Ransome saved a long weekend camping trip. A small group of us had driven up to a campground some 270 km north of Toronto. When we started setting up our tents, we found that my friend had forgotten to put his tent poles into the car!

Luckily the site had some conveniently located trees and
we had a good length of light rope from a sailing boat we had towed north. Remembering the tents mother made for the Swallows in S&A, I worked out how to rig the tent between two trees and so we were kept dry during the overnight showers
