Unread post by Pascalinah » Wed Feb 24, 2016 12:48 pm

Hallo at all,

Several tents in KTC to have been destroyed during the last storm. Does anyone know if the tents were repaired again? :-?
Does anyone have pictures of the destruction?

Thanks and kind regards
Pascalinah

Hi P.
I was there during early December 2015.
There had been a severe wind storm a short while before and the roofs of no 10 and 11 were damaged.
While I was there no 10 was being repaired.

Actually stayed in no11.
Fortunately did not rain. :dance: :dance:

A solid roof,such as fitted on the kitchens was being fitted at no 10 and the red shadecloth replaced over the solid roof in order to maintain the look of the tents.
I was told that all the tents would have these solid roofs fitted over time.

If there has been a subsequent storm then there may well have been further damage.

Leaving for KTP on Friday and will be staying at KTC next week for a few nights.
Back home around the 10th March.
Will update when I get back. :thumbs_up:

Hi P.
There was a huge storm in the area on the 15th February resulting in 11 tents being damaged.
All the damaged tents were quickly repaired and during the time I stayed at KTC,1st to 4th March,all were either occupied or available for occupation.

The severity of the storm is evident from 14th borehole northwards with many trees uprooted and large branches broken off many trees.
Between Craig Lockhart and Sitzas a large tree has fallen across the road causing a minor detour.

No problems whatsoever were encountered. :thumbs_up:
