Yep, rriiight :|

I slept on something like that back in 1977-81. Not going to repeat it nowadays.

That gave be a great belly laugh thanks. Be a great item to puncture proof these modern blow up mats but you can't beat a kevlar footprint.

Wild Earth has a 24hr special on.

Of particular possible interest to forum readers is their range of Wilderness Equipment tarps which are well under RRP.

Happy Spinning

Edit:
Sorry everyone - just realised this sale ends at midnight tonight and probably Eastern Standard time.

Thank you very much rifraf.
Just saved over $140.00 on a Sea to Summit Trek 3 down sleeping bag.
I had been watching the Wild Earth sight for a couple of weeks and was on the verge of purchasing at an already good price. The further discount decided it for me. If not for your reminder I'd have probably forgotten about it.
Thanks again. :)
I'm taking off on a two week tour next Wednesday and with a bit of luck the new bag might arrive in time. Otherwise I make do with the smelly old synthetic job I've had for a while.

I picked up one of those tarps at an earlier sale to promote a new store opening.
Its basically $100 off RRP making their "light" tarp the same price as their standard one.

I managed to score a Petzl usb battery cheap as chips from one of their ebay sales a while ago so they are a company worth watching.

Macpac has some specials on currently including the Sundowner XP down jacket for $179.95 which I happen to think is a steal.

Happy Spinning :)

Mountain designs have a sale on and an extra special sale on outlet items

still quite a few items in commonly sized items (and if your size is xxl or xs this should suit you perfectly)

I got a few merino items

popped into kmart the other day and was surprised to find folding buckets ($5), wash sinks ($7) and a triangular plastic mess kit with two bowls and a compartmented spice holder ($5).
Probably not as good quality as sea to summit but at about 4-7 times cheaper definitely worth it

I use one 0.9 litre titanium pot to cover all of these items bar the spice holder (zip lock can do the job) and in fact looking to replace it with a mug :)
