Ooooh...spooky...I could have written these exact words (except I'm
usually out for a _week_).  I guess I learned the "table" trick one time
when I had the cover on because it rained a lot -- the ground was all
muddy, and I realized the _inside_ of the cover was ideal for the purpose
you describe.  I also have a D3, and it weighs about sixty pounds when I
start out, because of the "necessities".  :)  As for additional uses, one
time when I had stopped for lunch on a very warm day, it began to sprinkle
but not really rain, so I threw the cover over my head and down over my
back just in case it suddenly poured and I needed to huddle under
something to finish my lunch. -- Linda ("Earthworm")
