About 1984 I bought an Ultimate Peapod tent to use as I camped all over The Lake District.
I used it extensively until about 1991.
It then went into the loft…
I used it once in 2009 on a Skye trip…apart from a few blemishes it was as good as new.
I’m off to Skye soon so thought I’d best check it out.
I pitched it on Sunday 5th April 2015….remarkably after 31 years it appears to function as new. (Although I’ve not checked its waterproofness)!
I think it cost about £100 at the time, when I was on about £28 per week. So very expensive. Looking back….best £100 I ever spent. Used to ‘Wild Camp’ before it was ‘fashionable’ and was just called ‘Camping’…
