Our home away from home

Easily one of the most important bits of kit we have on our 630 mile adventure - our tent!
This affordable beauty from Wild Country/Terra Nova has proven to be a robust, spacious and most importantly lightweight tent that we're really happy to be using on such a challenging trek.

 As you can see it's pretty spacious inside - even for 2 Fat Lads and their huge 88l rucksacks. The large separate porch area makes the sleeping area not feel cramped.

All of this fits into quite a surprising small volume, easily small enough to fit into our 88l rucksacks without causing any space problems for other items. The best part is how lightweight it is - 3.1kg. We decided that for us, with the weather and ground quality being unpredictable, to also go for the separate ground sheet to keep everything in the porch nice and dry.
