Didn't camp in it but I did put up the tent in the backyard. Six Moon Designs, Lunar Solo. Just figured it needed some air and I needed something to do.

Heavy rain forecast for Victoria on Friday, so a good time to test gear in the wet. Set up in backyard and report. Might be nice to chill out in tents with rain and warm sleeping bags.

How is the wet weather camping going Avatar? Looks like things are starting to flood in VIC...

Had to work plus my backyard has too much concrete slab. Raining hard after 5pm Friday and Saturday, but did walk in the rain. Missing 2 years of snowcamps.

I might have to get creative with some home camping. Tonight is a foam mattress on the lounge floor….. my best sleep ever is had on this thing.
Warning: self-pity rant to follow.
In “iso” for 14 days because some muppet at my partner’s work, who received his positive Covid result last weekend, thought it was a good idea to go to work on Monday and Tuesday.
Seriously.
Perhaps a good time to re-seal my tent seams and test it out, we have some decent rain coming in the next day or two.
