if by yourself and only stoping overnight a pain good if staying a few days. Where I live heaps of great spots with in a 3 hours’ drive so looking at doing some trips next year where you drive in the morning fish the afternoon camp fish morning then home so looking at keeping it simple. Small tent or swage etc. I have a fridge and small barbecue. Keep in mind I am over 55 over weight and a bit soft.Look at MO Tackle now totally confused Looking forward to your help. :glad: :wink:

I have a small tent, but rarely do I get to do quick overnighters.. :?:

my 'longterm setup' is similar and I understand the pain of setting up.. escpecially if by yourself..
I try to getaway either side of a weekend for 5 days or so.. minimising the use of annual leave..

Thinking about it starting to like OZ Trail Tourer swift pitch $299 as standing room may be good for a stretch. http://www.motackle.com.au/oztrail-tour ... pitch.html Or OZ Trail Breezeway Dome $89 http://www.motackle.com.au/breezeway-domes-1000127.html and spend some money on a tarp to go over the ute and tent an also have some shaded siting room. The small tent would be good enough if did need to take on yak. :?:

I have a nice 4-6 person tent, which stays at home. I also bought a little sub $50 Wanderer brand tent from BCF, and just used it on an 18 day outback trip. Being a 69 year old fat b*stard with artificial hip and multiple heart diseases, I was totally amazed just how easy it was to cope with. I kept everything in dry bags, and once the tent went up, I went in and pumped up the mattress and blew up the pillow, and dragged out the cheap sleeping bags (opened out to be blankets), one for below the waist and the other for above. I slept like a baby every night!

I have also done some overnighters with my Tandem Island, using the same tent with equal success.

So I would have no hesitation in recommending even a cheapy tent like this for overnight stops.
