Buy looong tent pegs. Short ones tend to pull out during monsoons. Do you like Fritos? Put some under your tinder for a fire and you can have a blaze with one match. Speaking of such I like wood kitchen matches, but don't buy the strike anywhere type. You don't want your pack catching on fire.
The space between the fly and the tent also keeps the condensation which collects under the fly from getting in the tent.

Sad news to report: The conditions in the ADKs were not suitable for camping this NYEve, so we stayed home.
