Hi John, I have typed in "Outwell Virginia 5" in youtube and I can't find anything? It comes up with 2 pages of finds but I can't see any pitching video, can you direct me to a link please?
I have tried many different ways of searching on youtube for pitching the virginia 5 but as yet I havn't been able to find anything?

How I did it.

On the top of the page is the address bar. This page has:
   http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=32&TopicID=254541&PagePosition=1&ThreadPage=2&get=last#3636259

You right mouse click on the address bar, then choose "select all" then right click again and choose "copy" then that copies the page you want people to see.

You go to the reply box on this site, (where I'm typing this now) and look at the icons above the box. You select the one with the globe and chain link. (To the right of the U icon )
Type what you want your link to be called, Press ok , then in the space with the http:// highlighted you right click and choose "paste".. then ok and it should place the link you copied onto the forum so that when you click the link name you entered, it should go to the copied link. Then post your reply as normal then test your link button out , it should work! hope that helps.

Thanks very much for this link, John and Paula and Angads.  It doesn't look too difficult, but my OH says Yeomans were using computer graphics to make it look easy!

I'm certainly looking forward to using a quicker-pitch tent for shorter trips, and actually, after watching the video, I'm beginning to realise we haven't got the knack of putting up the larger Aztec tent properly yet!  Must take over the mum-in-law's garden and do some practice with both!

Hi FoO!

How have you been getting on? Did you manage to have a go at pitching the tent?

I am now onto getting something I can sleep on for our hols and want to know what people have got, Airbeds or Self inflating mats? Pros/cons?..

Less than 1 week to go! :)

did you tighten the tension adjusters at the bottom of the poles (wild guess that it has them as not got mine delivered yet), but the vango tigris 8 i have needs them well tightened to even things up. I will prob be on in a week or so asking pitching advice as i pitch solo! Ive just returned a hi gear tent as it was such poor quality and bought this one from Yeomans.
