“There is a plant in south west Tasmania called horizontal scrub. It’s called that because it grows up vertically and falls down horizontally, then more shoots sprout up from those horizontal branches. So not very friendly to bushwalkers. I’m down in south west Tassie looking for an old track and I’ve just spent about 20 minutes in the horizontal scrub… crawling my way through… to no avail. On the way back my GPS said I was 20 metres away and 7 minutes later I was back on the track.
I was wearing Mont thermals top and bottom, Mojo shorts and latitude waterproof trousers. I was too hot to wear the Odyssey jacket but it was in my pack. The video was made traversing Horizontal Scrub in SW Tasmania. It’s fairly slow travel…”

Choosing a new tent is one of those moments that calls for serious research. It's a big decision, and a potentially risky one, if you get it wrong you may have to live with the consequences for a long time. I live in Tasmania and love exploring wilderness Alpine regions, especially winter camping.
So, my non-negotiables in a tent are it being waterproof, that's #1, then weight and space. Ok, looks play a part, but they are a bonus :)
