I pitched my current tents in the garden, to check all was well with them. Before going to a site and finding all is not well.

I still pitch them in between trips, to try out new gear, or improve my pitching technique.

Trouble is, when I want to sleep in them, my wife wants to come as well. LOL

Besides, a new tent needs 3 sessions of rain to 'proof' it.

Just wish the birds would find another target!!! Grrr.

Regards James

In the beginning there was darkness.
Then I bought a tent.
I'm not destitute, I'm just poor.

Your right in the flesh it is very very good quality they would sell lots if the pictures they used were better. We will be taking it to Pillerton, I am your neighbour
