Wales + Bank hols = Rubbish
I enjoyed that Kelvin - certainly a memorable trip for you.
pity about the mat - the more I read about leaky insulated inflatables the more I'm not tempted to get one ( well, another one)
" The Comp pitched side on into winds will shrug off a battering far more ably than most give them credit for, it had it’s pole hood on and it’s a strong little beast then."
Is that, as in the length of the tent square to the wind direction? I've read that Lasers and Aktos might be better that way. Never seen any pitched that way though - of the dozensof each last year, everyone had them pitched end into the wind.
Wonder how the Scarp would fair that way? Probably not so well as it's higher and steeper...
A tent was preferable to the summit shelter on Cadair when we were up there....
And I certainly know of one former OMer who used their cooking pot for 'overnight relief'... I found out when I went over to collect it for the first brew of the morning!
I thought my weekend in the Black Mountains was damp.
Fancy the Cyfrwy Arete this year if I can find a mug to drag me up it, and now know - dont use the shelter which I had planned - think changing me to a poet like you may help me.
Good blog - put a smile on my face
Bummer about the Exped deflating. Most unusual.
Did you find out what the problem was? I've heard that their after-sales service is very good if you've got a faulty mat.
Really enjoyed reading that mate and I guess you enjoyed doing it as well. Always looks and feels different afterwards
