Panick

Woke up with a start the night before last, the Owl was back and this ment that I was late for work got up in a rush and was half dressed before I checked the time on my alarm clock. 5am, not late for work at all.

I'm going to have to send the Owl back to the shop to get it fixed.

I am using a poncho I got from an army surplus store, it's made of gore tex and can be attached to trees using bungee cords. It makes a good roof. Some times I attach it to the ground with tent pegs.
I recently got a bivi bag and this is really key to keeping dry, failing that try sleeping under a Yew tree or a holly bush as these offer the best protection for the rain.

I would recommend getting a bivi bag now that the weather is getting cold as you could well end up getting ill without one. The Orange Survival Bags that you can get are a lot cheaper but they fill with condensation and you end up getting wet anyway, they are better than nothing but should not be viewed as a substitute for a bivi bag.

Incidentally - I guess this is as good a place to ask as any - did you get round to uploading a photo of your ditch somewhere?
