    There are many hi tech options on the market, maybe attempt to emulate this shelter system used during the Pooncarie - Mungo Ride 2008.

    I prefer 1 man or 1 man and 1 woman or 1 man and 2 women tents. 2 man tents are however ...gaining in popularity.
    numbat and Big Willy like this.

    Oh boy, here we go. :lol3

    There are LOTS of threads about tents on here, but I don't know how to add links to them. :shog

    Tents are a personal thing, and everybody will have a different opinion on the best tent. Some people love their Aldi 2 person hike tents, and others love their $400 hike tents.

    Me personally I like my 2 person Blackwolf Wasp when camping on my own, or the Blackwolf Scorpion when with my other half. Or our Vango Omega 250. :D

    Usually a 200W/40 mineral based, semi-synthetic castor enriched blend mixed at 20:1... but only if I have the right helmet and tyres on... :wink:

    Have a look at Bivouac in NZ - 20% off all tents at the moment.

    Hi guys, you may like this swag with a tarp thingy or you may not? But either way check out the comments, apparently it's perfectly safe to have the bike over you whilst camping.


    Cheers

    I've had a bike fall over while I've been camped. I was out of the fall zone. Your choice.
