Tent Carpets

Tent Carpets –Yey or Ney?

Tent carpets are an individual preference and can sometimes depend on budget too.  If you are lucky you can get one as part of a tent bundle and that will save you some money.

Personally now that we use carpets in our tent I love them.  They help keep you warmer, especially getting in and out of bed, no cold tarp against your feet.  They are also easier to clean when spillages occur.  No having to mop out the tent or get down on your knees to clean up.  On the latter I was always worried that cleaning products would damage the material of the groundsheet too and make it less waterproof.

Camping Season 2018 – Get Prepared!

Planning for the 2018 Season

Well now that the holidays are well and truly over and you’re settled back in to your routine with life, work and family it’s time to start planning your year of camping, if you haven’t already done so.  For all you that camp through the winter, I salute you and envy you.  Now that I’m older this is something I now don’t do.  Maybe it just an age thing but I feel the cold a lot more and don’t find it as enjoyable.

I love nothing better than looking at sites and dates and trying to plan my time away.  Phone calls to friends and family to see if they want to do any joint camps and when.  It really starts the passion burning again for the year ahead after sometimes a long winter, especially if I’ve not managed to camp during this time.
