    iPhone app for Portugal?

    Heading to Portugal soon and want an app with off line storage of the tracks we will be taking. I have GPX files, need maps! People are suggesting ViewRanger but it doesn’t have maps for Portugal.

    Question for the hard shell RTT folks

    Here in Ireland we are blessed with more rain than most and my JB has been out in it for 3 years straight now and it’s bone dry inside. There is some black magic going on with the vents, you can pack the tent away soaking wet and when you open it a week later it’s dry! Don’t know how it works...

    DIY Shower Water Basin Write-up

    Nice one! I like it! I use old fashion bar soap. I've never thought about whether or not that's eco friendly or not. I always simply assumed it was...

    Fold out RTT with hard shell when closed?

    Sounds like the Bundyflip is what you are after.

    Cracks on James Baroud Evasion

    I’m following game of thrones and this thread. This thread has the meanest cliff hangers ☹️

    Anything changing with James Baroud?

    The sail strip rail is pretty standard. You may have to find one to better match your tent and then figure out where exactly to mount it but that shouldn't be that big of an issue. I think the tunnel itself is a bit of a faff though, not particularly impressed. I do like the awning though, I'd...

    I quite like the look of that awning. Any pics of the bag?

    Bundutop Anyone???

    I know 3 people with Bundutops and they have all had a lot of issues with them. Everyone has had different issues as well so it's not the same problem that keeps popping up. It feels like they never progressed beyond the prototype stage.

    Roof Top Tents and wind

    Here in Ireland high winds is a very common problem so from experience hard shell roof tents are the best. Soft, or clamshell, tents are terrible. Most ground tents are pretty bad too. The key is the tent material being completely taught. This will reduce wind noise but it will not eliminate it...

    Making a cup of coffee stormy mornings

    When you go away for a couple of days you don't really want to be holed up in your tent. I've a hard shell rtt so it's a pretty small space. The car doesn't have much room left in it either with all the gear so also not a nice place to spend the weekend. Because it's "normal" doesn't mean it's...

    Thanks for the effort guys but I'm still holed up in the car or the tent with the suggestions.

    Making a cup of coffee stormy mornings

    Here in Ireland we're at the mercy of very high winds at times. The weather can change several times throughout the night and it's not uncommon to wake up to a full blown storm outside the tent. We have a JB hard shell tent so in the tent wind isn't really a problem. So it's a case of bolt out...

    Howling Moon 270 Awning

    I have the HM Swing Awn 2m. I also have the walls. The awning itself is excellent. Really sturdy construction, nice thick fabric. I love that the legs are built in. I rarely use the legs though. The bag is pretty **** to be honest with you. I think Stevie Wonder may have done the stitching. I...
