The weather was pretty good again, but some rain was forecast overnight, I’d been experimenting with different tarp setups, this one was pretty good, certainly lots of space for my kit, but it needs another pole to keep the back up and off your feet.

Another bivvy in a thunderstorm, we went further afield and found an off road route from Brighton Marina up to Stanmer which worked pretty well. It was very windy when the storm rolled in and the thunder was VERY loud overhead. My tarp stayed put, though Daryl’s pegs pulled out and he had a rather wetter night!

Another local one, though this time with added new singletrack that Hoops had found and also a new, out of the way, bivvy spot. Fantastic weather and an almost too warm night. Tried a new ‘tarp tent’ set up which worked really well.

I got that from this video:
