B and I bought a new tent last year and spent a week in June, on North Uist in the June gales.
B likes to think he's a nature man kind of camper but I was secretly pleased his 40 year old tent ripped when he thought he's try it out on my front lawn. We compromised on a mid-range good make that is a 3 person tent. I was sooo appreciate it had the tension straps as it tried to lift off a few times, but it stood its ground.
We don't argue, but I said I was only going to try out my retired (from when my ex and I had a caravan) but hardly used electric frying pan so we had to pay for electric supply. Even I was amazed at what I managed to cook with it, a home-cooked dinner of improvisation virtually every day and easy to clean too. I only said to him this afternoon, we must plan another trip. I fancy visiting some gardens around Nottingham and visiting the new RSPB place in Sherwood Forest. Probably take our e-bikes.
