The first outing of 2010

Looking forward to a trip to the Peak District this weekend. The snow is clearing at last. I shall take the tarp and I have a new bit of kit to try out. As a tarp groundsheet, I usually use either a space blanket or a piece of polycryo. Neither are that strong although they are both extremely light in weight. Today, I've acquired a length of Tyvek, the stuff made by DuPont and used in roofing. It's a bit heavier but should be tougher and, I'm hoping, sufficiently waterproof. Another posting tomorrow evening hopefully.
