    20170601_193422.jpg this is the T zip, the J zip works really well as it used the space better. I fitted shock for to the apex so each seem so i can get a tight pitch. Being used to single skin it does feel cramped though. For me I think it's have to be ~-10 or very spin drifty to prefer it to my over bag and groundsheet or bathtub.

    Cheers Enzo. I was just going to use it in summer for midge prevention.

    No need to bring it down now NEEpps but thank you for remembering. I will order one.

    Sad to say that I won't be joining you. I've just had a job offer that takes me away for 3 months. It was supposed to start mid March and I could have still come along but they've pulled the start to March 1st so I won't be able to after all. Hopefully see you in the summer when I'm back.

    Apologies all, due to ongoing car issues, I cannot guarantee I will be able to offer lifts or make this now. I think it's best I remove myself so that people can arrange alt transport instead of letting people down nearer the time.

    So ... other than ‘somewhere in the Brecon Beacons’, was a final meeting point actually agreed upon for the Friday?

    Dug this out. Must be about 22 years ago, somewhere on the black mountains. All tech gear on display?! :)

    The similarity between your photo @Enzo and the one in the previous post by @Taz38 is quite frightening....more so if your mate was sticking his tongue out...

    @OneBeardedWalker Tom I didn't think of booking this time of year. Did the owner (was it the American guy you spoke to?) say if it was busy etc? Shall I book a table for the Friday?

    A table wouldn't be a bad idea at all. I booked via email, so didn't speak to anyone, but I got the impression (he wrote back very quickly, didn't ask questions) that it wasn't busy and would be fine just to turn up.

    I'm bringing the van up, so either in that or wildcamping on Friday night.
