Bfg urban terrain so very mild all terrain/road. Most I have had is 360 miles to a tank. Which is just short of 44mpg that was with wifey and camping kit down to hastings. Just running around its nearer 250 to 275 a tank.

Drove up to Strata Florida at the weekend to have a break from finishing my PhD thesis.

Great views and great trail! Despite half of it being closed, it was still very enjoyable! It was bloody cold though!

Few pics and videos:

That looks fab - I guess the only thing is you can't pitch your tent low down in a sheltered place, does it feel like it rocks around on the suspension a bit when windy? :blink:


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS

I did indeed. My sleeping bag from a 2010 expedition to the Himalayas came in handy. I did wake up with a wet/frosty mustache though from freezing condensation!.

I don't know yet as it's been relatively calm the few times I have got out to use it. I was surprised how little the car rocks left/right when I am in the tent though without wind. I'll still have to see how it fares in a gust.
