    Hi Folks

    A few of you mentioned collecting your tents and you guys should have PMs to that effect.

    There a couple of you just having tents so I will get them sorted and sent.

    Those that require a stove as well need to decide whether to pay more for carriage and have two deliveries or wait until Feb for the stoves. I'm OK either way as there isn't much extra work in sending two parcels.

    More soon.

    Cheers

    Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Missed yesterdays post!


    Great new that the tents have arrived :D

    I'd be happy to take two deliveries as my son is sooooooo excited about getting the Lavvu.

    Any rough idea when the stoves will be over in Feb??

    Thanks for all your efforts and for keeping us posted :You_Rock_

    Cheers,

    Phil.

    I'm collecting my Luvva on Monday.

    If anyone living in Hampshire would like me to collect theirs too, then pick up from me, I'm happy to do so.

    I live in Fareham. PM me before 9pm -ish Sunday.

    Cheers
    Andy

    Hi Folks

    There's an SotP member collecting his Lavvu next weekend (27/28 Jan) and he's offered to take any others for collection from the Chessington area.

    Delivery for a Tundra 8 & groundsheet is around £20 so see if this option makes sense on mileage.

    Off to sort some more tents now.

    Cheers

    Jon

    OK folks here they are.
    Sorry to keep you waiting..had to wait for the sun to come up!

    [​IMG]

    The Luvva went up without any problems despite no instructions. There are three peg loops connected via a webbing strip
    I pegged these out first and put in the pole. It stood up OK, despite a windy afternoon, then I went around the base and put the rest of the pegs in.

    He he he ha ha ha ....great!

    [​IMG]

    Enough room for four and our kit with the added advantage that if the weather's not to good for sitting outside there's room to play inside.
    I brought the ground sheet too its a quality pice of kit (not just a cheap tarp) as is the whole thing.

    I'm thinking of making some adjustments to the groundsheet to enable it to be put in after the tents up. Also going to add some eyelets.

    Now the weather is chilling up nicely I really need a stove ;)

    A very happy me and an over excited small person had breakfast in the Lavvu, -2 and frosty but brilliant.

    :D

    Nope I don't think I will be going to the Lakes Meet. If I was I would bring the tipi for you to see. If I change my mind or anyone local is coming I can get them to bring it for you to look at.

    Yes, Bikething you missed your canoe ;) It's a SotP meet.

    No that's fine John, maybe there will be another one there, otherwise I'm sure I can wait until the next Loch Lomond meet. Will there be a LL meet soonish?
