Again we met for our UL community meeting on scout campsite in the Brexbachtal. It is an really nice campsite, but most of the time when we are there it is really wet. But this is no problem for our outdoor-tested community. This year again many of our members followed the invitation to the valley. Here are some impressions our our meeting in late October.

Congrats Marco you did it. My friend Marco from Spain whom I met on a packrafting trip in Norway started his own Ultralight Cottage. Since some weeks he is online with his company called As Tucas on Twitter. During that time he posted some interesting photos of gear he had tested and superb ultralight fabrics he will use for his gear. On our trip I could see some of his MYOG projects and his quality was superb. Therefore I am glad that he has turned his hobby into job.
Since November As Tucas is online with a homepage and webshop. For the start of the shop you can get a nice Flat Tarp for an excellent price and stuff sacks. Furthermore there is also a small range of clothing available. An insulated pants called Sestrals made with Climashield Apex and Momentum as shell and liner fabric. Last but not least there is a baselayer hoody called Zilindro made with Schoeller Eschler fabric. You can also get Custom Work from As Tucas.
As Tucas is als developing a Merino Wool range and Synthetic Quilts. So stay tuned if you are interested in gear Made in the Pyrenees.
Good luck for the future Marco.

I’m so sorry. I was a bit busy in the last time, because I had lots of things to do on my little farm and I was planning my honeymoon trip to Canada.
But when I’m back in October you will get the rest reports of the Outdoor Show and a trip report of my SUL trip and maybe some nice shots from Canada.
So please stay tuned and all the best from the Canadian wilderness.
