So this weekend camping hasnt gone quite to plan, and im blaming it on the crappy british weather, and it not stopping raining, we knew our tent as cheapy and tiny but that was fine but we didnt think it would leak, after a LLLOONNGGG walk to keswick for a meal we came back to our tent to find it dripping, so tried to put up my sisters which is what we were using orginally until we thought a pop up tent would be easier lol, after 30 mins battling in the rain at 10pm we gave up and used the top sheet bit to give us a extra layer, but it just kinda squashed us even more. it wasnt until the morning we started to be really wet, when we woke up we were very wet and its was still raining. so we gave it up as a bad job and just went home lol.
it hasnt put us off but we should of had a practise run of the tent first and have had nicer weather, i still had fun though and will do it again maybe not as far as 2 1/2 was quite a way, and when its sunnier.
peggin down our tiny tent.
a bit of a squeeze
