I’m so pleased!

My old Vango TBS Micro 100 is actually fine after not being used for about 18 years.

My current plan of doing a cycling/camping trip is bringing to take form and with the impeding thunderstorms yesterday afternoon I decided to pitch it in mum’s garden to test how waterproof it is.

Apart from a few discoloured marks on the back of it, the tent looks great and I can honesty say after a lot of storms and torrential rain the tent did not let a drop of water in. This morning when I checked up on it, the inside was bone dry.

I was worried that if my tent leaked I may have to abort plans, or end up buying something like a Zelter Shelter which whilst it sounds like a cool idea, it also sounds incredibly claustrophobic though.
