    Just spent a long weekend with my son, beside the river Tavy on Dartmoor in this. River too low to paddle, but we had a fine time nevertheless with fluid of another kind . We don't care for the minimalist approach .

    Looks very comfortable basecamp indeed but, as has been said, I'd not want to portage it !

    After some 9 hrs of paddling at The Henley Festival, with some wee three short stops in between....

    I was glad to get mae heed doon!

    Laying there amongst the bugs and stuff, over what felt like a nest of Hedgehogs!

    Loved it!

    Meanwhile, next door I slept in blissful comfort on my Thermarest cot, above the bugs, worms and hedgehogs. Some blinkin' midges ate the top of my head though...

    Yeah, yeah...
    I saw the opportunity for tranquility that night, it's just that I sleep better without it, that's all!


    Sunday morning and looking good!

    My kind of camp site - a wild-ish one!
    Leave nothing but footprints.. and in some cases probably best to brush those over eh! and take nothing except photographs...and a few souvenirs of course!

    So, on now to the secret of good night's sleep whilst out in the Boondocks....somewhere just above Henley On Thames! - (How wild-ish do you want it! )

    Be ruthless, just steal your daughters favourite pillow!

    This is Ken. Have you met Ken? Her's just bad, very,very bad!

    Here's a camp shot from a local bivvy with the kids a couple of weeks ago. Looks a bit odd due to the auto adjust. It was dark at the time. We actually dropped the tarp for shooting star spotting purposes.

    Nice picture. The dead grass gives it a nice bleak look.

    It's strange that I can see them on my laptop, but I suppose they need transplanting to Flickr first, which is a pain and I don't have time to faff with it at present.

    So from one tent and a tarp you have upgraded to two tents and a Coleman type shelter, plus two park benches with tables - wow!!

    Bet those benches are tricky to transport!! Those Robens tents are awesome.

    I couldnt get the picnic tables in the bike trailer! Nice set up Oldman. I'm quite tempted by those teepee tents.

    I had to put the benches on the roof bars and leave the canoe at home .

    This was the first serious time out for the Robens. It's a very nice tent with shed loads of room inside, but being polycotton it's not as robust as a pure cotton one like the one next to it. I'd like the groundsheet to be thicker as well, but I use a reasonable quality tarp as a footprint. It's all built to save weight, and at 20kgs it's not bad for a 5 metre tent.
    The porch is useful for stopping rain entering, but only if it's coming down straight or from the rear.
    The bottom zip closure is a little awkward, especially in the dark, and I'm surprised the efficient Germans neglected to put in a dedicated cable entry.

    However, these are only small things in the scheme of things, because what I like most about tipi and bell type tents is the ease of erection which can be done solo - even by an Old Man

    It's not German. Robens is part of the Oase group which owns the Outwell and Easycamp brands. Danish I believe.

    Edit: I retract the above. Robens is German but was acquired by Oase in 2000

    All academic anyway as they are probably all made in China

    Whilst not the most efficient in terms of space usage inside, I like the ease of erection and the fact they stand up to high winds well.
    In fact, I just like them - must be something to do with memories of cowboys and Indians at Saturday matinee when I was a young'un .
