From the last couple days. Don't have a wind meter but as you can see I setup the tent fly exposed (no wind break) on the coast. Anyone who lives on the NW coast knows it is generally windy, and with 90 degree weather inland, I am guessing we had sustained 20-25 knot winds with gusts in the 35-40
I am always dissapointed when I actually measure the wind speed with my Kestrel vs. what I measure it with. I believe Sam Millard found that most people overestimate what the wind is actually blowing when shooting long range too. Regardless 45 mph gusts are nothing to mess with!!!
