  • Pitch! Luxury Camping

    February 5, 2016

    PitchPitch say "from Noosa to Byron Bay and Beyond. You book the site and we pitch it!"

    Camping doesn't get any easier than this, does it?

    At Pitch, Tim & Lisa Mitchel are driven by helping others to reconnect with nature. They do all the hard work in preparing your accomodation ready for your arrival, and you simply rock up to your ready-pitched and luxuriously furnished SoulPad tent, to enjoy a break under the stars.

    Tim & Lisa particularly enjoy accomodating wedding and hen night parties, but are as equally at home taking care of family groups or those looking to escape for a week-end.

    Pitch can set-up on private properties or public campgrounds.

    To find out more or to connect with Pitch on a deeper level, please visit their website.

  • Bubble Trouble

    October 1, 2014

    Did you ever pitch your canvas SoulPad tent (or any canvas tent) in the rain only to find a weird spatter pattern appear, and for said pattern to let in water? If yes, then this article is for you.

  • A Delicious Camping Snack

    September 12, 2013

    Mr OM's favorite!

    Ingredients: A wheel of brie or camembert, bread (you know, the nice rustic looking type - the sort that everyone thinks you made yourself...perhaps you did!)

    2Method: wrap in foil, throw on the campfire, leave for 5-10mins, break open the foil and dip into the cheese with the bread. Add cranberry sauce and almonds for a sweet Autumnal yum.

  • Good Reason (if ever you needed it) To Security Mark Your SoulPad

    March 26, 2013

    The following letter broke our hearts at SoulPad HQ, and we wanted to share it with you to help warn of the dangers associated with theft at festivals. This is the first SoulPad that we've ever heard of being stolen and it makes us sad because the SoulPads normally only ever attract positive attention.

    How can we combat theft at festivals and on campsites? 

    Security marking your property with UV pens is a good way of protecting your property, but is only really effective once the crime has been committed. Even then, what are the chances of secuirty or the police recovering and identifying your property?

    It's therefore a good idea to introduce yourself to your neighbors, agreeing to look out for each others property in each others absence.

    In the event that any of your proerty is stolen at a festival please do report it to both festival security and the local police. Failure to do this skews the festival's crime figures. They need to know the scale of the problem in order to tackle it effectively at following festivals.

    Our thanks to John for sharing his experinces with us:

    "Hi

    I have bought a lot of tents over the years and decided I would dig deep and buy something worthy of my cash that would last.

    After a search on the internet I decided that a canvas bell tent was just the jobby for me. Times been what they are I soon realised that i would need very deep pockets indeed and then I found your site on YouTube of all places. The guy with the dreds put it up within a few minutes and I was hooked.

    To be honest it looked kind of too good to be true. I'm a trusting soul so I have been stung plenty of times in the past. But you know when you have that vibe when somebody is actually a really nice person? Well i got that feeling from the lass on the other end of the phone. She wasn't pushy for a sale and was very friendly and helpful.

    OK I could still be stung, my rare pessimistic side nagged.

  • Carbon off-set idea

    March 14, 2009

    We've become friendly with some real soul buddies at Alegre Travel, a soulful campsite in The Sao de Mamede Natural Park, Portugal. These guys are really in-tune with the SoulPad ethos and are keen to provide low impact camping solutions. Of course, it also helps that the location is just stunning too!

  • A SoulPad Wedding.

    January 19, 2009
    Jm_1

    We were delighted at the news that we'd be playing a small part in another SoulPad wedding, and Jonathan Pearce's plans just seemed so exciting. At the time (when he first contacted the SoulPad offices) Jonathan was torn between having the after party in woodland or meadows. Ah! What a lovely thing to be worrying about, we thought.

  • Responsible Trade

    July 12, 2007

    Responsible or ethical trade tends to be associated with the activities undertaken by multinational companies throughout the world. Comparatively SoulPad is a small organisation and one that does not come under such public scrutiny. It is our belief however, that all companies (big or small) should try to act ethically throughout their supply chain.

    Granted, small companies like SoulPad do not have the resources and leverage of the multinationals necessary to implement immediate changes. Despite this SoulPad endeavours to trade ethically. We are interested in social and environmentally responsible trade.

  • Does my bum look big in this?

    Wam-bam


    Erm.....actually, yes it does.

    When SoulPad customer, Lisa, took Wambam (her SoulPad 5000-tribe) out for the first time, she immediately realised the importance of following the instructions at each stage, and how rubbish her shoulders were as a substitute central pole.
