Broken tent in the backcountry

So my friend and I went recently for a hike in the Bieszczady mountains. It didn’t last long as one of the tent poles broke when setting up for the first night. Trying to fix it made it even worse. Luckily I had my tarp with me. Here’s our camp:

The broken pole was still quite useful: it secured one of the tarp corners in place.

And it was replaced with a couple strings.

Worked really well. Despite rainy night we had a good, dry and mosquito-free sleep :-)
