    Classic Garbage tarcks, you just cant go past them. Elevation of the mountains is just under 1000m

    Man.....rainy trips can be the best with the right friends and frame of mind. and tarp, of course.

    Coffee and pancakes under the tarp in the rain. We came across another camp site on the way out that would have provided some closer hangs which would have been the go... Enjoyed the rain and testing the set-ups taught by yours trully.

    Glad I spent some of the weekend prior in some barktard tarp testing.

    I really felt for the guys, they had not been there before and were robbed of the view, they carried increased confidence levels of the climb upto the top of the ruined castle!!!

    Wish I could have come, never been down there before, Looked great.

    Sounded like you needed another aussie accent, sounded like a trip in the UK Bloody Poms.....

    Hopefully next time.
    You were missed mate.... I did feel like I was in a Ray Mears vid. Great blokes!

    Thanks, was really happy with the arrangement I went with. Was toasty warm and with the end pulled in closed at one end had next to no wind.

    Would love to check out the vid but I'm getting an error on YouTube saying that the author doesn't allow viewing on an iPad. I haven't seen that error before on your other vids.

    Is it Flash video only? The iPad has been crippled by Apple and doesn't support Flash content.
