    My First Ascent Dream Deluxe picked up a puncture the other night. It’s still usable even though uncomfortable and annoying having to get up to inflate it again every hour or so. Murphy’s law of...

    Hi all
    Apart from the forum, do you generally post reviews on places you visit and if so, where?

    1.3 ton is plenty, but I just hope you went for a worm gear winch, this makes it so much safer and easier. Also get Super 12 synthetic winch rope if you can and get rid of the steel cable, steel...

    Re: Fridge Question

    Many people use their fridges without baskets no problem.

    Depending on the trip we sometimes don't use our NL 90l's top freezer basket and also not the top fridge basket in the middle.
