Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

New tent on order

I have just ordered a new tent. Having spent a couple of nights in a bivi sack, albeit in my bedroom, I have to admit that it is very cramped and not much fun zipping up a bag over your face. I modified it by adding a foam pipe insulation tube to form a kind of hoop when I lay in there but it is still pretty uncomfortable. Great for emergencies but not much fun for a couple of months.

So, I heard about these Tarptents which are incredibly light and you can even use your hiking pole with it.

It weighs only 24.5 oz! And I will use my trekking poles to put it up. Cool (I hope).
