2nd one is not mine, it's a guy I cycled with for a while, his tent made a great photo though. Taken in Mali.

My tent is a Vango Altas 200, about fifty quid from Amazon. I've used it constantly for six months now, in the winter and the summer, and have had zero problems with it. Well: sections of the poles have split, but nothing a small length of duct tape doesn't permanently repair.

Tanzania is great country for cycling. DId a small tour there in the late 80's, when it was super cheap!

I tried one of these very nicely built Terra Nova tents. Yes well made, yes looked good. In use too small (for me)

Marco, just in case my lottery ticket comes up trumps and I can afford another Hille, what do you think of the Rogen, and how do you think it would do with two (assuming you were using it solo there)?

What I'd really like Hille to make is a two-sided Akto/Enan. Enough room for two and a porch/door each, but just the single pole to save some weight and bulk. I have asked, but no sign of one yet!
