    Mighty deer stalker race.

    sounding quite alright, although my 2 mates are anything but into anything bushcraft -meaning i get the usualy friendly grief off them!! And i had considered talking my dd tarp, would be much more efficient getting that up for 1 night rather than putting my tent up and down!
