Not lost in a white hole I hope, or polymophed on route into a quecha!

Thank you Jim and Mucker for the replies. I look forward to testing the tent.

Any top tips for folding it? I follow the instructions on the Karsten video but find I have to do it twice and really squeeze it in to the bag.

I only roll it once, but I do get it in... just!
I follow the instructions to the letter, and make a point of nice flat folding. When doing the flappy bit (to get air out of the tubes) then throwing the ridge back, to flap again, I do try to make that fold neat and tidy, around the ridge capping and the tubes themselves, so that it's not all bunched up. The rest isn't so bad, but the actual rolling up needs to be tight, of course.
Leave the roll on the ground, and place the open bag over the tent, like a sheath. Don't try to drop a heavy, cumbersome tent into a floppy bag!
Rarely is the zipping-up light and delicate, and often, I need to kneel on the bag when zipping up, but more often than not, it goes in, and it gets zipped up.
Have to say though, that is for my pod only. I've never put anything else in there, be that door poles, guys, pegs etc. I doubt I'd get it zipped up if I put anything else in there!

Is there a way to search the, now, mammoth Karsten Klub thread?

Not in any practical way, no!

There's no UKCS facility to use a search term within a thread (That I'm aware of).

If you are on Chrome:
Top right, click the 3 vertical dots, then click "Find".
Type in the word you are looking for.
Chrome will tell you how many times that word appears, and highlight them in turn... but only on the page that you currently have open!!

As we are now on page 375, and you would have to repeat the above steps for each page, I'm guessing that is little to no help at all!!


Best bet all round is to ask away here, and hope that one of us either know the answer, or have a rough idea where (or when) in the thread it was previously mentioned. (I struck lucky with the recent mention of D Rings, as I remembered them being mentioned around the time I joined this thread... and there it was on page 10, the very page I first joined in on!)

Besides... we're intrigued now!

Haven't heard a dicky bird from James yet. Have had to tie my hands behind my back to stop myself from asking him if it is here yet
