Good job there is another site nearby with good facilities.

I may try Devizes first though.

For future reference if you don't already know...The Three Magpies pub just up the road from Devizes C&CC have EHU grass pitches and I was told by the barmaid that they charge £10 per pitch regardless of number of occupants. Might be worth checking on that though.

wow, i'm happy for you. i'll wait for your pictures... maybe if you were in two in pitching the tent this could half the pitching time?
i've some problem with the translation, so please, be patient with me...google is not helpful in this case..
in the pitching instruction, i could not translate "peg out" "peg in", please, could you help me to understand what does it mean?
when you say "the middle frame", you mean the same as the "moveable front wall" ?
ore do you mean the poles?

i'm sorry if these seem stupid questions .. and i hope my English in not too bad )
thank's again,
sara

Sara, your English is excellent, and no question is stupid.

I have never thought of it before but 'peg out' is a peculiar phrase because it means put the peg in.  When you 'peg out', for example a groundsheet, it means stretch the groundsheet out and put the pegs in to the ground to hold it in place. 'Peg in' means to put the peg in the ground.  Just in case you haven't figured it the 'pegs' are the pins pushed or hammered into the ground used to hold the groundsheet, guy ropes etc.

Keep asking questions, it's the way everyone learns.

What alahol2 said about "peg out" and "peg in".

The "middle frame" I referred to, is the frame in the middle that holds up the canvas and the door panel if one decides not to have the door panel right in the front of the tent.

Hope this makes sense.

I cannot comment on pitching time if 2 people are doing it instead of one.

However, that would be a logical conclusion that 2 people would half the time of doing a task, PROVIDING both people know what they are doing.

Thanks Bob for the information.

However, I would rather stick with C&CC Devizes as I know what the site is like and the standards to expect.

Thank's a lot, i've understood .
Obelink sent me the pitching instruction for the superior 6, so i've seen what you mean with "the frame in the middle". But, in your tent, do you have one central pole (the vertical one) and two frames? i think that the palamos is quite similar to your tent, instead superior 6 seems too complicated for me to erect.
thank's. sara

Hi Sara,

The Escala 4 is the smaller version of the Palamos 6.

Apart from smaller in dimensions, it only has 1 bedroom pod with a foldable divider, and not 2 separate pods as the Palamos 6.

I can't tell by the pic on Obelink what is holding up the canvas where the front panel is. It looks like some sort of an rectangular frame, an "H" without the spikes.

I agree, it seems an "H" without the spikes .
If i have understood from pictures of Escala4, there are two of this "H" in the front side
and there is also a vertical pole in the tent backside that holds up the canvas. Is it right?
I wrote to obelink asking for pitching instruction, and he said that he can ship in Italy the Palamos but not the Superio BUT he sent me only the Superior instruction and not the PAlamos Sara

in the Escala..there is a tall pole in the bed end (like a bell tent)

then there are two 'n'shaped pole frames that go in the living area so that the movable front of the tent can be attatched either to the front 'n' giving you a 3m x 3m living area or fixed to the rear 'n' frame gives you approx 3m x 1.5m living area

hope that helps..
