|My faithful 'Des Res' for Greenbelt: 3 M, dbl-skinned, with blt- in gsht, porch and air circulation system [front door] - aka the 'Amorphous Green Caterpillar'|
If Pop-up tent folding should be made an olympic sport; I'll not be rushing to sign up...
Spent last night - no, let's be honest - spent part of last night out in the back garden doing a pre-GB try out of my tent. Why do I need to do this? I know the wretched thing is still in one piece after its debut at GB 2011! Come 2 am, the insomnia prompted by the heat and the rustling of God's tiny creatures in the shrubbery became too much and I snuck back into the house to seek refuge with Mr GP.
Quite why I've also chosen what must be the warmest day we've had for ages to check out all my other camping gear, goodness only knows, but never mind, it's all neatly folded and packed away. Apart from my super-duper pop-up tent; here it is, 'airing.' Anyone who's read about my struggles with it last year * will know what I'm talking about and why I've nicknamed it the 'Amorphous Green Caterpillar!' Is there a patron saint of tent folding do you know? It was never like this back in my Girl Guiding Days!
