Two golden rules for camping:-
1. Never leave valuables in the tent when you are out, and keep them in the bedroom when you are asleep/in.
2. Peg your zips down on the insides at all times, acts as a kind of "lock"
3. use an air bed and good sleeping bag
4. Don't take wellies and rain macs into bedroom, keep the wet out (but it won't rain!)
5. Wear lots of layers.
Did I say two? oh well
McGrooger - I was talking about the glamping on site, a la boutique camping etc. Incidently how much is B&B for the period of the festival?
1. Keep money etc in sleeping bag
2. Leave anything you don't want to lose at home
3. No bad attitudes - Womad should be a friendly place.
4. No chairs in front of stages
5. No pushing and shoving to get to front of stages
6. No picnic mats with clutter in Siam for me to trip over
7. Gaffa tape - it is always needed
8. Suncream - you never know
9. Bring plenty of rubbish bags - yes they give them to you but bring them anyway
10. Don't litter the site
11. TAKE YOUR TEN, WELLIES, SLEEPING BAG, CAMPING STOVE AND RUBBISH HOME
Cut holes in them and they make a useful waterproof for any showers we may have. Place them on damp grass and you can sit without getting a soggy bum and, if you've lost your tent and have to sleep in a ditch they can double as a sleeping bag.
That's me packed.
Redleg - the link I gave was for pre-erected camping on site. I'm paying £40 a night for Bn'B. In 2006 I had a wad of cash nicked from my tent at Reading which would have gone a long way to paying for this. Admittedly the current site seems much better in this respect Also I don't need to buy breakfast, queue for a shower, sleep with earplugs etc. Main thing is though that I'm old enough to have paid my dues in the camping / slumming stakes and need plenty of Rn'R to face the rigours of the weekend - you know getting my chair near the stage, my picnic rug down in the SIam etc. (only kidding, PD!)
SBS - it wasn't you I saw in 2007 wearing bin bags with gaffer tape suspenders in the mud, was it?
Mcgrooger, you're almost convincing me to drive the 10 miles home.
But no I'd still rather camp.
Half a double bed available for hire.
But I'll have to check with the wife first!
Been a while.
Now PD! That directly contradicts your rule about friendliness!! Lol!! McGrooger. Do you often stay in a bnb close by? I'm looking for a nice one for us to stay over next year the night of our wedding before Womad. xxx
And don't forget BISCUITS.
