    So that's why you got Sue to cut the lawn

    I'm on-call this week but might have a blast at this myself one night, didn't someone mention a collective virtual backyard meet?

    Mine too but I’ve got a stack of CCF mats which should do the trick.

    Pegging could be awkward but I’ve got bricks, or failing that a drill :whistling:

    Yes, you will need all of that to go under your XMid.

    I remember when I got my first ever backpacking tent at 17. I put it up in my bedroom and slept in it next to my bed on a wooden floor with no mat...:woot:

    I once put a tent up in my spare room - in eagerness to see it up when postie brought it. The spikey side velcro worked on the carpet to pin the guy lines out.

    I have a Karrimor xlite 2 man hybrid geo (3 poles) that I got for summer festival work bout 6yrs back. Gave up the music festival work that year before the season & started doing the local arts fest so it's only ever been pitched in the front room on the day it arrived, what a waste.
    Tried to give it to the nephews, but they just looked at me funny. :(
    As for my back yard, to much noise from the Italian couple next door, I say couple but to be honest I've seldom heard his voice.
    edit: Think it's this one, but as siad, only seen it the once

    A cracking idea, if I have to be self isolated I could do it in my hammock in the garden, swmbo won't be impressed lol

    Space for quite a few tents in my back yard, even at 2 meters distance, and a view of some hills.
    Unfortunately I'm staying away from folks just now.
    Sorry :(.
