    I agree setting up a tent inside a shelter is a big major no no. All you are doing is taking up space that some tired hiker that comes along may have wanted. If you sleep in a shelter just roll out your bag and pad. Otherwise sleep in tent OUTSIDE. That's why you carry a tent in the first place-- to have a place to sleep if you can't be in the shelter.

If you don't like critters stay away from shelters.
    Exactly. It's funny because when I did the Georgia section there were some dudes getting ready to set up their tents in the shelter and I just asked them, "Don't you think a mouse could chew right through that?" The dudes thought for a few seconds and then scattered like roaches out into the woods where they set up there tents...it was a pretty funny scene.

    Yes...this! Stay in a hotel if you need that much shelter.

    I've set up my tent inside a shelter a couple of times. Then I moved it out into the rain and slept in it. Stayed much dryer that way.
