George had organised a weekend trip, camping overnight in Bath on 21/22nd May. At this time I hadn't bought any camping gear so it was time to get some essentials sorted. When it came to a tent, weight was the deciding factor and I purchased a Coleman Exponent Rigel weighing in at less than 1kg. Next was a self inflating roll matt by Vango and the same panniers that George had gone for, the Raleigh Avenirs.
When the tent arrived I popped it up in the lounge. Its single skin design is very basic and easy to put up but there really isn't much to it. But what the hell, I am only going to sleep in it and as long as it keeps me dry that's all that matters!
