How do I weather my tent?

When buying a bell tent for the first time you will hear that you have to 'weather it'. When you first buy a bell tent, there are little needle holes from the sewing of the tent that water could potentially get in. How do you fix it? Weathering is all about reducing the size of these holes by adding water. This causes the material to contract and the thread to minimise – which means no more holes!

A guide to Far North Queensland in a bell tent

There’s only so long a gypsy can ‘settle’ in one place. The nomadic lifestyle is made even easier when your tent packs down into a little duffle, can be strapped on the roof, and pitches easily by one person in under 20 minutes. After a month in the new Gypsy Palace, we were ready to explore the north and hit the road as eager as kids in a candy store with our gypsy wagon on wheels.
