Hello form Horsham, Victoria

Postby Golden_Daydreamer » Wed Sep 26, 2007 1:07 am

Hello campers,

My name is Henry Blake and I live in Horsham, Victoria. I have been lurking here for a while after following a link to a thread here from a MSN Gold Detecting group.

I have joined Derek's Camp Oven Cooking forum and found that I couldn't use my Gmail address here like I can on Derek's site.

I have a Jackaroo 12 person tent on lay-by which I hope to pay off by mid November.

Sorry about the quality of the picture. It's taken from the side of the box the tent comes in.

Cheers,
Henry.

Hi Henry
I couldn't join up with my hotmail account either - must be a free account thing or something?!
Welcome- I am still relatively new myself! Love the tent - we have moved up to a trailer now.

Welcome Henry, now that tent is big enough to fit us all in the one structure...why we'd want to do that is beyond me though :***

Thank for the welcome.

The tent is 6m (L) x 2.8m (W) x 2m (H) and VERY heavy. I carried it from the camping section to the lay-by section of Kmart but I'll be using a trolly when I pay it off. It's a new model and was half price. It should be large enough for one person (I like plenty of room).

I have been teased that much about the M.A.S.H. thing since the '70's, It's "water off a duck's back". :lol:
Cheers,

It's the first dome tent I've owned so I hope it's easy for one person to put up.

My last tent was a 12' x 9' cabin stile. The instructions were written to be put up by two people. I had to make up my own instructions. I sold it years ago due to lack of use.

This tent is tent number 4. I don't currently have a sleeping bag, and my Companion fold up bed is too low and can collapse without notice. ::() :(

G'day and welcome to the forum!

Careful about the tent tho' ... people here have a habit of buying camper trailers after six months or so on the forums!

Hi

Postby Camping Couple » Sun Sep 30, 2007 12:00 am

once you have worked it all out it shouldnt take much longer than 20 to 30 minutes to put it up on your own..one tip though what i have done is seperate the poles according to colour ..with rubber bands ..you will find it a lot easier and quicker when putting the tent up if you dont have to sort through the poles for the right sizes

Thanks for the tips. I have to finalise the lay-by by 21/11/2007. My back yard will be getting hard by then so if the pegs bend easily (like the pegs on my other 3 tents that I no longer own) I will have to replace them.

Scolers, If I had the $5,000 for a camp trailer, I would be updating my old bomb (currently a '86 Nissan D21 ute). :***
