Getting it Up

 Further to my previous I have been doing some post purchase internet research on Tipis:

Look like Germans installing the beer cooler

Outoor "Tipi Compact" Tent:
The "Tipi" - named after the Native American Indian tents (meaning "they dwell" = literal translation from the language of the Lakota, a Sioux indian tribe) - is very common in Europe today, especially in Scandinavia. It is chiefly characterised by its enormous height and is very spacious by design. The laborious and time-consuming process of pitching this tent using lots of poles is thankfully a thing of the past. The single central pole facilitates straightforward, speedy pitching, which one person can manage alone.
The central pole is erected, the guy ropes are fixed with pegs and that's it!
With this tent, which boasts Outdoor typical high quality, you and your crew will be sitting comfortably round the campfire long before the others are finished pitching their tents in the dusk.
Features and specification:
  • High-quality single-skin tent
  • Space for up to 6 people
  • Guy ropes and sewn-on loops ensure stability even in windy weather
  • Quick and easy to pitch by yourself
  • Always a comfortable climate thanks to peripheral and roof ventilation
  • Max. standing height: 2,50 m
  • Diameter at base: 4 m
  • Pack size: (WxHxD) 74 cm x 24 cm x 24 cm
  • Weight: approx. 9.5 kg
  • Hydrostatic head rating: 1,500 mm/cm²
  • Material: outer tent 100% polyester, tent floor polyethylene (waterproof)
  • Colour: olive/black

New Year Resolution

Happy New Year to you all!

Due to financial stress caused to the mighty Nikos World empire by the thieving Greek government, I resolve this year to go camping:

Bought for €59.99 at Louis Fun company in the post Christmas sales I may have blundered somewhat as I see that there appears to be a ventilation gap between the ground sheet and the tent.  The initial attraction of this tent is that I can stand up in it (height 2,50m) and lay in it (diameter 4m). Looks like I will also get wet in it and then freeze to death.
