    Hi Guys!

    Beeswax coated canvas - I've got enough beeswax for about 30 square metres now - Thanks Ben (Ben and Ken's Survival School - bring petrol- awaiting URL)!

    I'm gonna coat that amount of canvas this year now I've had to abandon the bikes and buy a Landy so I can carry more weight, so I'm thinking a bedroll and a tarp, so I'll be watching this post for any advice/experiences.

    Thanks!!!

    Steve

    Are you going to fix the tarp direct to the LR , we did that at one of the Wilderness gatherings we went to and managed to get away with vehicle camping parking pretty much on the level and no kit humping to be done !! unlike the other poor sods who had to carry their kit up the hill

    Pretty much Dave! Looking for a decent 2nd hand roofrack as we speak! Already got the extendable canvas 'roll-out & support tarp' mechanism idea mapped.
