I know there are about a million questions out there about the tents for the camping tours - but I thought I needed to add one more!<BR><BR>I have been looking at the information on the Contikipedia regarding camping tours and was looking at a couple of pictures of the tents used. Is it just for the picture - or is there really no base to the tent? It is just walls and the bottom of the tent is open to the ground.<BR><BR>Is this really how the tents are? Or is there a tarp or something that gets laid down? It just seems like it is a potentially dirty situation. What if it has been wet and we need to put up tents on wet and/or muddy ground? Our suitcases and whatever else touch the ground will get decidedly gross!!<BR><BR>Not to mention all the bugs! lol I am not all that much of a girly girl - but I do not like spiders and don't fancy the idea of giving the easy access up to my sleeping bag if they are there!!!<BR><BR>Anyone who has been on a camping tour care to enlighten me?
