2008 Helsport Fjellheimen Camp 3. Breakfast yesterday at the DNT "campsite" at Finse on the Rallarvegen.

Of course it decided to rain just before we broke camp.

It was a short Brompton tour, Haugastøl to Finse on Friday evening, Finse to Flåm on the Saturday. The Fjellheimen is perfect for Brompton touring as it has a very small pack volume, very short poles and a vestibule big enough to take both bikes (when folded) and all our luggage.
So long and thanks for all the fish...

The new tent, a Vaude Power Lizard UL had its maiden outing in Switzerland last month.

It was a bit crinkled at the beginning of the trip, this is the semi urban site at Le Landeron near Neuchatel :roll:

Things were a bit smoother by the time I got to the top of the Jaun Pass :lol:

Gelert Mongoose 2 - a £40 bargain as a solo tent but would be cramped with 2 adults. Location is a lock side on the Trent & Mersey Canal.ImageImage

This is my current setup; pic somewhere in Turkey.

Vango Apex 200 tent. Now on its last legs :-( after 630 consecutive nights :-) Has endured searing heat and sun in N.Africa, torrential storms in the Balkans, -plenty temperatures in central Turkey and attentions of drunk shepherd in Sardinia.

Sligachan it is indeed Feefee, I love the way the mountain and the tent echo each other's shape.

O now you mention it....! Really nice tent. I'm aiming for that midge fest myself this summer......

For the many times I've ever been in Skye, I've never been into the Sligachan. My family are from Sleat; all of my drinking was done there! My granny (native Gaelic speaker) pronounced it Shleegachan - few pints required before attempting makes it much easier!
