Not sure what is the best distance for snow fencing. If you find out let me know so I can let others know. My guess would be 5′ high and 8′ away from the tent on the windward side with metal poles perhaps with guy-lines.
Some of us will be at BM.

OK – looked over the site again and found the answers to the % coverage question. Also looks like you recommend 2-3 sunshades for the 18 footer. Thanks for having all that stuff posted. Now the next issue I’m grappling with is wind protection. I saw somewhere on the site that you recommended snow fencing as additional protection in high wind conditions. I’m wondering if the 4ft high stuff is a good size? Also, how far away from (or close to) the shelter should it be for best protection? All the way around? Staggered? I’ll be using my car as a wind-break, as well.
On a side note – will you be at Burning Man 2005?

We got the 18′ foot dome in the mail the other day and love it.
Our field season doesn’t start until June 13, so I will send you a photo
of the tent after that. Nicole and I set up the tent in our backyard.
It took us about 30 minutes as advertised- a simple, elegant design.
