Hey everyone. Its been a little while since i have been on. Been abit busy setting up my own business.
We are looking at going camping in the new year and are thinking of downsizing our equipment as it just takes to long to set everything up. Heres a pic
It took around 1.5hrs to get it completely set up with around 40-60 tent pegs and with the kitchen, blow up mattress etc.
Which we just think is to long and to much effort. Last time we set it up ( in the pic above ) i pulled my hamstring doing it rushing around before it got pitch black. Which pretty much put me out for the rest of the trip.
We are thinking of going to a smaller dome tent with a built in fly for ease of putting up and the time it takes to get it up, selling our little kitchen bench / storer and anything else we don't need.
We just think that we shouldn't have to rush around and set everything up, it should be relaxing from the time you start packing the car. We tend to get things for ' incase anyone wants to come camping we have the room for them ' but stuff them they can bring there own gear lol and no one has ever followed through with their plans to come camping with us anyway.
Good idea to downsize or stick it out with the current setup?
