That tent is old but wow Warren still in a good condision hulle maak tente nie meer so nie

For it's age it's not bad, but it does need mending.

And that's the pickle, I need to have the mending done so that it retains its authenticity, Although I can do it, I can't do it and keep it as it should be... So I'm going to have to scoot around for a professional... I'm thinking of Canvas & Aliminium at Kempton vans.....

This one's only going to come out on special occasions.... FAR too good for Gryswater & Kie.....laugh

Warren, is that a kiddies tent, looks a little tight from here.  Windows or other ventilation aids? But incredible that a canvas tent survived so long.

Nee, dis hier by 2 x 2 x 1.5  hoog... Die ventelasie is so ronde flappie agter, en die ingeboude grondseil is ook van a dikker seil...

So here is another thing, you dont fold this tent up you "stuff" it in its bag, and it's very similar to the tents that where used by troops in the first world war, including the same color.

This "stuff" in the bag... years ago I had a friend who bought a very expensive very high quality sleeping bag....

Knowing that I camp he offered it to me for free, claiming he could never get it folded up in its bag, That it was such a mission he was gatvol with it...

Thanking him I only too gratefully took it off his hands...

He got rid of a problem

I got a bloody good sleeping bag - that fitted perfectly in it's bag when you just stuffed it in!

Anton yes, That's what makes it fun....

Se vir Gryswater..... Alhoewel dis so bietjie "gebruik" en is nie meer die mees " larny" tent inne kamp-pek... As die bietjie regmaak gedoen is, en nuwe hout penne gekerf is, by die volgende saamkoms, kan hy, sy " long-term-partner" 4 neefies, niggie, ma, pa en Arrie dit kan gebruik.....

Anyway for Neef - - - - - The pole "knuckle" system (nogal interassant), Ventilation flap and LEATHER Strengthening patches (original)







Die eintelik probleem is, met een van die die seil " tubes" / Pype waarin die paal deurgaan het geskuur, waar die paal druk teen die seil... So mooi gesien inni foto, en selfs met die opslaan bietjie verder geskuur.

Om dit reg te maak, in die styl van destyds toe die tent gemmak is gaan die probleem wees.

Daar's nie ander uitweg, dit moet reg-gemmak word, maar ek wil nie nou n vandag se tyd herstel jobbie doen...

Ek gaan my " herstel - quest" eers by Canvas & Aliminium begin.....

Wonder ek nou.... wat is die geldelike waard van so tent?
