    It was the hottest week of last year, the tent was like an oven. I went home with a major sunburn problem, some parts of me actually went purple (leave it! :whistle:)

    Tobermory is one of my favourite places on the planet. I love sailing into there. Saw my first otter there about 8 years ago mooching about below the lifeboat ramp. Mr Hop's last munro was there too :smile:

    Yep. And strangely the sun always seems to be shining when I'm there :smile:

    I had a Wild Country tent which I used for backpacking mostly. One of the poles broke in Wales on a walking trip so I bought a cheap tent in a camping store- it was about 40 quid I think, might even have been 35. Planned on giving it away after I completed my trip but it's good-enough for solo camping in the UK so I've still got it. I don't even know what the brand is, mountain-something or other perhaps. Here it is in a campsite behind a pub in Essex, I have been to better locations with it but didn't take photos of the tent while I was there!

    The people in the blue tent were well noisy by the way. I left at 5:30 a.m. before the nutjob Dengie Peninsula drivers got started.

    It's big shown in the photo on the pannier and heavy too. I like the tent but will be replacing it for a smaller and lighter one to carry this year :smile: IMAG1383.jpg
     
  13. Sun and no wind, thought I'd have the first go at pitching the Zephyros that I bought earlier in the year :smile:

    also I have cable tied the little end poles into place to avoid having to insert them every time
