It was I nice sunny day, so I put up the tent, which was been laying in the cabin for 3 years. Just want to make sure that everything was how it was suppose to be. Our tent is a NEMO “MOKI 3P 4-SEASON BACKCOUNTRY TENT”. It is one layer heavy duty tent. To protect the bottom we have added the footprint.
We also bought bigger pegs, which is good for setting up the tent on sandy soil or if it gets really windy. The thin pegs (to the right) are for solid or rock soil.
After that I sorted out all the other camping gear. Started out with the basic…
Tent, two sleeping bags from HAGLÖFT “HYPNA S3”, which is a 3 season sleeping bag that we can zip together to one big sleeping bag. Comfort temperature is –9C/16F for men and –2C/28.
