Ride home for Monday, 11 August

Picked up a tent at Canadian Tyre for Hali To Valley later this month (facebook event here for those so inclined). I need to get a sleeping bag, dry bag and pad and I'm good to go. It was a bit iffy hauling the tent home as it stuck out of my bag by a foot or so... It seemed to persuade other drivers to give me plenty of room though!

Have you thought about renting the sleeping bag and mattress pad? MEC and the Trail Shop both rent stuff like that. :)

Thanks for the hint, Dawna, but I'm looking for something permanent - the sprog has already told me he wants to come camping with me next year! I'm also interested in the whole S24O thing, one of the advantages of working at the hospital is I get flextime so I can take a day off here and there without a problem.

consider a compression sack for your tent. As space is often a valuable resource.
