Looking tidy, Sam.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

Had a pleasant afternoon yesterday making up window blinds for the 88". The other picture is an old one I took showing the basic idea for the camp bed

Do you not find that camp bed a bit hard?
I had one ages back and only ever used it for one weekend. Never again have I used it as I couldn't get to sleep on it.
I now use a Fishing type camp bed with a bit of suspension in it. Much more comfortable.

Not at all, been using it for years in tents. I do put a thick sleeping bag on top of it to act as a mattress though

No, but then I'm used to being on the floor in a tent. I do put a sleeping back on top as a mattress though.

Been swapping starter motors this week as my 2.25 one is pretty useless so put a TDI one on instead, far better

I put rolly mats on my campbeds, it stops the cold strike from benaeth and make things a bit softer on my pointy hips.

Couple of pictures courtesy of Simon taken at Viamfire last month and another showing the 9x9 village that sprung up with Gossamer's two and my excellently modified 9x9 with skylight

Looking back, it's the pics before that have thrown the set out. I'm having to scroll across a whole page to see stuff now.
