The tarps are polycotton ones. I got them made for a group buy type thing on SongofthePaddle. They are 4m x 3.3m so good for use with a hammock in whatever direction you set them up. They weight about 2.5kg. We also got lighter weight ones made that weigh about 1.1kg for the same size. I don't have any left and am not planning on reordering anytime soon but there are probably ones people don't use that could be found with a wanted request on SotP.
Typical Scottish weather really. My eldest son is here this morning putting up a new fence; right now it's Sunny, but the wind's just gotten up, and I'm looking across to Blantyre and the sky is blueblack, so I'm pretty sure it's going to hail. We're supposed to get sunshine and light rain later on though. Brits have dozens of words for rain
Those tarps have done well John so have the hammocks though. I know you went to a lot of effort arranging to have them made, etc., but I know I'm not the only one who thought it was worth it
Rain's just wet stuff we get used to…..but even HM the Q has a brolly specially made to match her outfits.
I don't, but a recent add up came to three pairs of wellies and eleven brollies
I can't imagine living somewhere with no damp, no water, no rain.
Describing rain though….oh that's myriad from smirr to gandiegow, from stoting to haar, mizzle to drizzle, teeming to plothering or just dreich that leaves us drookit…the list goes on and on.
I too love that wee island and have camped in the same spot if you look up in the tree you was under I found a log that looks like a head so I climbed the tree and tied it in place hope its still there lol
