Inner Thoughts

The hole is off for repairs. I had to send the whole inner, and not just the hole in the inner. Tiso's as handling it through their tent repairer as a chargeable job. Meant that I could handle it in my lunchbreak, and not traipse around to the post office after emailing the original vendor.


And whilst there, bought a 'holster' for the Aquagear water filter. It is the 1 litre Nalgene bottle carrier with a zipped top. There's a velcro-secured side strap to allow it to be secured to a belt. the plan is to use the Aquagear filter in journeys that follow water courses instead of carrying more water in the Camelback.

As to the Akto's inner. Well, if I do get out before the repair is completed (perhaps the sidhe that damaged it could fix it?), then I'll use the outer as a tarp, and sleep in bivvy bag. Midge netting over head if needed.

Seems a weekend for holes. I've found a hole in the groundsheet of my tent and seem to have a slow puncture in my sleeping mat :-(.
