    Before I went, I read lots, and the general idea I got was that you want a bit of sag, so that you can lay 'diagonally' in it, as this makes you sleep flatter?
    That one was mine^^, and I had already taken the tarp down and slackened it before I thought about taking a picture!
    It took a while to set up, as I tied it first (pissed and in the dark!) to a dead tree.... Couldn't work out why my arse kept hitting the floor.... Turns out the tree was about to fall on me...

    Cheers guys.... Here's a snap of the top. I'll try to get under when he feels more benevolent!

    Another quick update on mr Riley :0)

    He had his final lot of stitches out yesterday, and the vet is over the moon with how well he has healed and that his gait is excellent... I can take him out for walks as of today.... But he was still in bed this morning!
    He has also lost weight, and I've given him a haircut and now he is bouncing around like a puppy again.... Very happy!
    I'll take a couple of snaps later, and see if I can get a good one of his little trotter, to show what an incredible job they did :0)

    This was my cheap setup...

    It worked a treat, and is a fantastic nights sleep!

    Don't suppose you upgraded from standard Jones bars, did you?
    Good looking steed there!

    Just sorted the time off work, so will have a bash at this... I've done the Italian one a couple of times, the two longer routes, will have a to at the long one. It will be refreshing being able to drive up in the camper and have a good nights kip, instead of the one man bivi that I usually use!

    Another one with an eleaf I-stick here.....absolutely tiny, 20watts of giggajingles and lasts 2 days between charges for me. I've got an aerotank mini with a birdcage on it to protect it in my bike bag....it's spot on for me with vapemunki barbed custard..... Mmmn:0)

    Pics of herbie?
    Mr Riley update...he is healing up, but has had to stay in for 2 extra days, as the vet wants to watch his wound without a dressing on, which is easier there than at home. We should be getting him Monday.
    Our vet, Helen, is South african....she grew up on a reserve, where her dad was the ranger. She is well known for her experimental surgeries, and has won awards for them....particularly one poor frog, who got his leg caught in a pond pump/filter...she managed to save the frog's life, but had to amputate one leg. I know it sounds like a joke with a french pun at the end, but it's true :0)
    He is in good hands....Lola misses him though!

    Cheers guys, very happy. I was getting a basket ready for the front of the bike though, just in case! And trying to work out how to get a spok on the front of him :0)
