Hi and welcome aboard Sue
Hi All, just joined today so thought I'd say hello. Based on the Isle of Man, looking to shed some weight on my kit, but I'm a big lad so its always difficult.
Currently got three tents (4 if you include the 3 man pop up tent for festivals), Hoolie 2, which is a palatial one man tent or an intimate 2 man tent, Zephyros 2, a stealthy one man tent but needs a good pitch, and a Helm 2, a new purchase (can't resist a bargain) which I'm hoping will be a decent sized 2 man tent (haven't used it yet).
Looking for a way to reduce my tent weight, although to be fair, if I lost 20kilos from around my waist, I reckon I'd find the hills a lot easier with or without my pack!
I've been chatting to Dan Durston about his x-mid 2 on massdrop, so glad to see that he has been keeping you guys updated on here too.
Hi and welcome Sack the jugler ..
Have signed up some time ago but never got around to introduce myself.
Based in South of Germany very close to the Alps I love overnighters and sleeping on top of mountains.
Don't even own a tent as I mostly just sleep under the stars or often find some kind of wooden shelter.
Now the Mrs. wants in on the fun so I'm looking for a light 2p tent in case anyone has a spare one lying around
Hi and Welcome @Tenting
Bit of a Bushcrafter / Wild Camper at heart. Live in Bristol but tend to do a lot of camping in Wales as its easier to become more remote there. Ive been asked to take 3 others across Dartmoor in August and teach them some bushcraft skills like friction fire etc so have my planning head on to try and find a decent route.
Welcome to the forum. Where are you planning on going? With open fires not being permitted on Dartmoor and most of the woodland offlimit for camping and fires there are very limited sites available?
