Yea I left Womud Sunday morning too, tent had sunk below the waterline, water ingress was faster than the bilge pumps could handle! Got a decent tent now so no concerns about rain or wind.
Gary I made the same point on the 'Police' thread. What we really want is a week of dry weather before they have to erect the tents or deep ruts are formed by the Manitou's. Its all so much harder for everyone in Production. I was doing a festival with a 2 week wet build and a truck delivering 2 X 16 tonne generators got 2 wheels off the Eve trackway immediately sinking to a jaunty but dangerous angle in the mire. Took a day to get it out.O=
Tim lets hope that forecast is better than half correct and thing improve from this weekend onwards.
Malmesbury weather forecast showing 2 days now "mainly sunny" -Thursday and Sunday...may it go forth and multiply
....and I bet the day spent getting the machine out churned it up even more.
If all goes well with the build, I'm hoping Womad have organised the trackway. They said that they couldn't get enough prior to the muddy Womad because Glastonbury had taken it all. No Glasters this year, so no excuse.
I didn't leave on the Sunday, I just needed something hard to walk on in comfortable footware. 3 days of wellies is not nice. When I got to the pub, the sun was shining and I could sit down! That is another thing about extreme mud, you can't sit in it or put you bag down in it! By the time I had rousted up enough energy to go back to the site, 3-4 hours had passed! I don't pay all that money to sit in a pub but I was in need of some chill-out time.
We had a fabb time at WOMUD. As for the weather...we'd already had the worst flooding in living memory in the region, so we were used to it by then.
I'm with you Shellovski, it's having nowhere to sit down, and the physical slog of getting anywhere that is so tiring Maybe if I was 30 or so years younger it wouldn't be such a problem!
can someone ask Gene Kelly to stop singing
Womud '07 was wonderful. I still have a piece of the (now dried!) mud from my wellie on the windowledge. It's mixed with dried grass. I thought one day it might be worth something. What category should I put it under on ebay? Here's to Womud '12
As my old Geography teacher used to tell us.......there's no such thing as bad weather, just inappopriate clothing
