    Default It doesn't get much better.

    We managed to get away for a few days camping in Wales last week. The site was fantastic, right next to a fast flowing river in the middle of some beautiful countryside.

    The owner got herself into a bit of a flap though and misunderstood the size of our tent resulting in us having a huge pitch all to ourselves. There was room for another four tents at least.

    The temperature was hot the whole time we were there which was just as well as every other time we've camped anywhere since we bought the tent in August last year it's been wall to wall rain.

    Anyway considering Col. don't do camping, the constant, "when are we going again?" questions she's been asking since we got back means that hopefully this trip will be one of many.

    It takes about 40 minutes to put the main tent up. That's the central dome and porch bit then about another 30 minutes to put up the two sleeping pods and the one designed for cooking.

    It's supposed to be a nine man tent but due to there being a fault with the first one and the Manager being a complete **** about it we were given another sleeping pod by Coleman with the replacement so it now sleeps 12.

    Nice lookng place Steve. Where abouts was it ( PM me if you would rather not say on the site). How did you manage to get the tent into the roof box, or did the tent go in the car and the rest in the roof box.

    Dolgellau Ed.

    All the light stuff goes into the roofbox and the tent goes into the car. It's in four bags so it doesn't leave much room for everything else.
