That's how I set up. If it is cold or threatens to rain hard I'll suspend the poncho just over the hammock diagonally and peg the corners so they keep some heat in and take any rain that gets through the tarp away.

He still hasn't found his mate who stepped outside the tent saying that he may be some time.

A few years ago I went off in March on a fishing trip in the old camper van we had. In the morning there was frost on the inside of the windows. The cat was not impressed!

Next night I remembered to turn the heating on.

We've survived down to -6C in Spain in winter. There's a lot to be said for gas when camping.

      I want to purchase a pair of boots for the colder weather, I do a lot of walking, and some trekking about the hillsides and trails. I do not want "winter boots" but rather boots that would be suitable for a cold day, but would work with layers of socks rather than thick heavy boots. Several people have told me Meindl is an excellent brand, and that is great, but what kind ? Hiking ? Walking ? Do they make them that they would serve the purpose mentioned above ? Any specifics to look for in a boot for this purpose ?
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn

      Sorry gentlemen to bother you, but I have come to my wits end. My neighbour across the way lets her dog roam as it please when it comes to shitting and urination, she is too lazy to actually take the dog out herself. He seems to have taken to my property and a certain area just under my bedroom window. I do not want to hurt the dog for the sake of her ignorance, but I do very much need to stop him from doing it any longer. The grass and  the shrubs are dying and turning brown and the flowers are just rank with smell that floats up through my bedroom window.
      He is a VERY OVERWEIGHT beagle and leaves behind some damn good deposits.
      I am wondering short of doing something stupid, what can I do to deter the dog from that area or any patches of garden I have? I plan to go to the council about the problem, and lay some of it on the town manager who is an acquaintance of mine, but in the meantime, any tricks out there to make my flowers and bushes unsavoury.
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn
