Just received an Exped pillow I bought of ebay.  £3.70 + postage new with packaging!

I took delivery of a Hilleberg Keron 3 GT today.  In my defence it was an eBay speculative bid based on my understanding that the reserve price must be bigger than my bid :P  It wasn't and I won; however, it was a bargain and it is a mother of a tent.  The amount of space is amazing, you could almost live in it, but at just under 5kg it is probably more suited to car camping.

Oh you lucky thing! I saw that on ebay and nearly bid on it since it was such a good price! I'm glad I didn't now :D. (We really don't need another tent :-[)

Yes!
Earlier today, I picked up this natty wee tent from lovely Ms Crystal Tips.  :thumbsup:

But, unlike "some people" (and you know who you are), I've resisted the temptation to pitch it in the back garden tonight.  :facepalm:

It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

Why not pop round and you can pitch in in my back garden - it's nice and dark :D

Like I said, when I'm President of the World it'll all get sorted. Must go now as I'm working on a global Moussaka levy that will raise funds to bail out the Greek economy.

When does it begin to work?    I'm sick of eating moussaka and the Greek economy has gone down the drain!

I noticed yesterday when I drove past the Leigh branch of Camping and General that it isn't Camping & General any more. It's been replaced by "Discount Oak Furniture" or some such nonsense.

I don't think there will be a lot of point in me going there on the eve of my next camping trip to stock up on stuff. This is a bugger.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Oh dear, I hope the main branch on Canvey is ok. I'm sure it must be as it seemed busy enough a  few weeks ago when we bought Circus Tent Mk2.

It would be useful for vampires who've gotten old and lost their teeth. Just sharpen the end a bit, jab into jugular, and dinner is served!
