Question When taking a Go Pro scuba diving, how would you mount it?
I'm taking a Go Pro to shoot some diving video, and I've never done this before.

Question Can windowless tents be adjusted for adequate ventilation?
I have an older tent, and it has some zip-down windows that can be completely closed, or opened for ventilation, with a rainfly that covers more or less just the top of the tent and leaves the windows open.
