 A lot of sites list the directions the tent was facing as in north, south, east and west. Having never been there, I don't know which direction is north. Can someone tell which direction the opening (exit) of the tent was facing ?

I would say SouthWest.  The long axis of the tent stretched SW to NW.  Seems to be why reports vary in N/S vs E/W.
All theories are flawed....... Get Behind Me Satan !!!

Would that be in the general direction of the way they had traveled that day, or would it have been the way they were planning to go the next morning ?

I think this is the general position of the tent which makes the tent entrance facing where they came from (SE) and the axis is SE - NW.
