    That all looks fantastic! What a beautiful way to spend time with your family.

    I can't quite tell, but it looks as if the firefly insect is large enough to consume small animals.

    Agree with the Gemini plans. They are great used in a double layer UQ. I use a single layer Gemini as a second layer to help boost my 2-season synthetic UQ.

    That looks good to me. The Tensa4 can be a little bit fiddly sometimes, but I contrast that with the "fiddliness" of all the other things I have tried instead of the Tensa4, and the Tensa4 wins...

    No problem, thank for clarifying that. When my Medistrom battery needs to be replaced, I will get the Talentcell battery. Cheaper and more capacity.
