Spent the morning getting the gear together. It is pouring outside but hopefully it will be better tomorrow.
I must be losing my touch though. A one nighter and the pack feels like a two week job. The four bottles of water and cans of bulmers probably don't help though.






OH will drop me off at about 11:30 and hopefully get pitched by 17:00 with a sunset of 18:45. I have left the bag liner at home. The bag is rated to -10 and I sleep warm but if it gets chilly I have my down jacket etc. I will be having a good feed before bed.
Now to download something from Netflix to the phone...

I seem to have chosen the weekend where the temps plummet. It should be interesting. New tent and new mat to test. As long as it doesn't rain I will be happy.

Looks like a good time to test out all your new gear
You must be off to the Wicklow mountains
On a wild camp
Hope the weather's kind to you .
Let us know how it all works out
