/ Brecon Beacons winter camp - some questions
Thought I'd give an update. Thanks all for your advice. I'm currently nice and warm in the ME Starlight IV with my crappy 3/4 length £13 mat and an additional cheap £5 roll mat from decathlon under me. On a shelf, sheltered from the wind overlooking the valley between Fan y big and Cribbin.
The tent is going in the bin after the weekend as the ground sheet has torn away from one of the fixing points on the corner. Luckily it's not too wet and it's being held in place by a rock inside the tent.
Brought in 3l of water between us and boiled water from some ice with the lack of streams for dinner.
Pretty much perfect apart from the slight decline we're pitched on which has me sliding towards the door anytime I lift my feet.
Thanks again all. Cheers!
Sat in front of the log burner with a glass of wine but have to admit I'm a teeny bit jealous. Stay safe, warm and dry...ish and have an excellent adventure
Pop a couple of shoes /rolled clothes under the edge of your mat, stops you rolling and makes it proper comfy.
