Size matters!


The other day while purchasing a new stove, I spied a bargain that was to good miss! I needed a new sleeping bag as the one I have is rubbish. There on the shelf was a synthetic bag rated for -5°C, under 50 bucks!!

Unfortunately I omitted to read the label properly. It’s way to small!! It doesn’t actually say “child’s” on it, but no grown up I know would fit in it! Too proud to admit I’m an idiot, back to the shop I went, this time for a longer affair.

Having more time to shop this time around, I was a bit more extravagant and went for a duck down job. A small package that opens up to one with plenty of length and warmth. Next dilemma I’d whether to try a hammock on place of a tent..


About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
