New Buying a Tent Article
Are you looking for a tent, but don’t know where to start? Just published in our Camping Section is the new Buying a Tent article, which outlines the various types of tents on the market, the advantages and disadvantages of each type, and the different features to consider which will help you find the perfect tent to suit your needs. Don’t forget to make a review/comment or question after you've read it, to make a post in the Forum to either let us know what you think, or start a new conversation about Tents.

Martin Family ExploreUSA
Not quite a true great American road trip, but certainly including Route66, the Martins are off on a 5 week tour of USA. They'll be driving and exploring SoCal, Arizona and Utah. It's a very different trip for David, Michelle and the kids, and you're invited to be armchair travellers. Starting in Las Vegas, the Martin family are beginning their trip by being a part of the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, in which David is competing in the Male 40-44 age group category. For anyone keen to watch the lead-up and results, go to the Ironman Live website on race day 9/11 (11th September), which usually does a live Blog of the race day commentary (focussing mostly on the pros, not the humans who are called "age groupers"). But David will keep you informed via his blog sent to our TriathlonOz.com website. After the race, we will switch back to travel-mode and will blog our journey of the Canyonlands, National Parks, Californian coastline and Disneyland on our ExplorOz website.
