Two newbies getting close


We have constructed a tarp shade and got a short tent beneath it, building off our car supporting two guy-wired rebar posts.

we then bunjee the whole tarp everywhere, and it holds great.

I'm worried about the tent. It has screens, so the breeze flows great. But the rainguard can sorta cover the screens (which are large). Or we can build an official cover for the screens.

My worry is that during a dust storm we'll accumulate dust through these screens, and be miserable.

Is it worth resisting the dust? Or will it simply saturate everything anyway? Should we plan to shake off the bedding after a dust storm, or should we try like hell to keep the dust out of our tent?

Also, we have rather small hammers. Will we need a real honker of a mallet to drive in our rebar stakes?
