Do you like the sound of a storm against the canvas of the tent? Did you know the storm was coming? Or did you get caught in it?

Did you want to not be home? Did you do it: because of the storm? In spite of the storm? Is there anything relevant about your home we need to know? Or about the tent? Or the place where you pitched it?

Yopishly someone else's home: an empty house? A house for sale? A house you'd buy? A mobile home? A caravan? A building which was not a home? A hotel? Something you could go inside if the weather was too bad? Had something relevant happened to your flat? Was something relevant being done to it? Did you want to save money by living in a tent? Would you have had to pay, had you gone inside the nearby building/shelter/thing? Are the relevant people inside it? Do you live in the tent in order to get away from something?

To get away from: certain people? People in general? Stress? Noise? This. Temptations? To get privacy? That was also a minor reason, but irrelevant to the puzzle.

Were you visiting someone? Were your default sleeping quarters at the time too close to the noise? So you chose to sleep in a tent rather than the other place - despite the weather? But you put your tent near a building where you could shelter if it got too bad?

Music: live? TV? Radio? Computer? CD player? Film? Other electronic equipment? Were your hosts making the people noise? Were someone else? Someone else visiting your hosts? Have you been subjected to this before? Is that why you bring a tent in anticipation? Or were you warned beforehand?

Relevant exactly which person/s are listening? Or why it's loud enough to disturb your sleep? Is the radio program live? Relevant? Do your host have markedly different sleeping hours than you do?

********SPOILER**********
Background info:
Since childhood, I often spend weekends and holidays at my grandparents' summer cottage. As my grandfather became older, he liked to listen to the radio in bed. The problem is that he fell asleep not turning the radio off. When my parents were not in the cottage, grandparents slept in the room adjacent to mine. And there was not a habit of closing the doors between rooms. The cottage is not as solid as houses usually are and walking in there makes squeaking noise. I was taught great esteem to people older than myself and did not want to ever disturb older people.
The situation:
Once when I was a teenager I stayed in the cottage for a night, grandparents sleeping in adjacent room. Grandpa fell asleep, leaving the radio on. I stayed awake till very late at night (one might say: early morning), being unable to sleep, fearing to wake Grandpa up by going to adjacent room and turning the radio off. From then on, I avoid staying overnight or bring a tent. As heavy storm does not affect my sleep, I decided to spend the night in a tent despite the storm - it was better than staying awake all night, listening to the radio.


Thanks for playing.
