Odd Photos Taken In April 2020

Sign

Odd photos that were taken in April. Considering what’s going on at the moment, there’s a surprisingly large amount!

With the continuing lockdown, Garry hasn’t been far on the bike. And the only photos he’s taken this month have been of signs supporting the NHS. From around Felpham and Bognor.

Being stuck at home like so many others, Garry’s been keeping himself busy. He’s been looking back at his previous tours to see where he was in April, in years gone by. And posting those photos on his social media platforms. YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Other photos this month are snapshots taken from the videos Garry’s been uploading.

MSR Hubba Tour 2 Still Isn’t Waterproof

Tent

The saga of the MSR Hubba Tour 2 tent goes on!

It started when Garry bought his first Hubba Tour tent, back in 2017. After the tent fly failed, he returned it for repair. However, the new one wasn’t waterproof! After many calls to MSR, with many of them, basically calling Garry a liar! Saying it was condensation and that nobody else had had this problem!! They eventually agreed to send him a replacement fly, which also leaked!

Once again after many calls, he was sent another replacement, which, yes you guessed it, also leaked! Garry was then sent yet another tent, which unsurprisingly also leaked! Garry was so annoyed by now he posted a video on YouTube highlighting the problems!

After a few months, MSR got in contact, wanting to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, the timing was terrible, he’d just come out of intensive care after recovering from sepsis. Garry did send them an email explaining his situation, and they replied, saying no problems, get in touch when you’re better! Well, Garry eventually did send them an email at the beginning of 2019. It got ignored entirely, and he’s never heard anything since!

Not Giving Up

Liking the design and layout of the MSR so much, and the fact he’s not been able to find anything similar that suits his needs, he took matters into his own hands! And now sealed the seams that were leaking with seam sealer. Which he actually did in 2019, but despite over 5000 miles on the road last year, it never rained! Or rather not when he was camping!

After being asked the question, on his YouTube channel. Is the tent okay now? It reminded him that he’s not actually tried it in the rain! Now with the country, in fact, much of the world in lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak! And with no end in sight, he’s decided to try it out in his garden.
