I just wondered if I'm in the running for the 'Huge Amounts of Gear' award? Here's my list: 1 x 4 berth tent - 6m by 2.5m. 1 x Folding chair. 1 x Folding table. 2 x Rubberised cotton air mattresses. 1 x 3m by 3m gazebo. 1 x Solar shower/water carrier. 1 x British Army issue poncho. 1 x Swedish Army Tranjia Stove. 1 x Gas stove. 1 x CD/Radio + MP3 player + solar charger. 1 x Emergency mobile phone charger/battery. 1 x Ajungilak 4 season sleeping bag. 4 x Torches/lamps (head/tent/mag-lite!). Various pans, kettles, cutlery etc. 1 x Very large & very sharp hunting knife (?) 1 x First aid kit. 1 x Tent repair kit. 1 x Air mattress repair kit. 1 x Urine bottle (eurgggh). 3 x Types of painkillers. 2 x Types of antacids. 1 x type of anti-histamines Various toiletries, toilet roll, wet wipes etc. Other 'medication'. 1 x Tube of anti-bacterial hand gel. Clothing, obviously (though not to some!). Cous-Cous (dead easy to prepare). 12 x Pepparami (He's no vegetarian, your Honour!) 1 x Camera. 2 x Pairs of sunglasses (1 that I will almost definitely lose). 1 x Vauxhall Omega 2.2 Dti CDX Estate 2 x Friends
Oh! & the most important thing - my floppy festival hat!
Do I win?
p.s. Is it obvious that I've got nothing more important to do this afternoon?
I noticed Warthog is bringing a gas stove. I take it it's fine to have those on the campsite then?
I'm thinking of bringing one because my dad brought one down from the loft and it is amazingly good, and I think he'll be sort of offended if I don't take it now. It's obviously pretty heavy, and cooking is a bit of a chore particularly when you're hungover/bladdered so leaving it at home won't be the end of the world.
as seasoned campers we always cook at the tent apart from lunch snacky things. we'll bring a large ice box which should keep things fresh at least until sunday morning, a box of food and a couple of stoves (an open fire would of course be better). last year's chicken stir fry was wonderfull and a roll and square sausage or porrige for breaky each morning is just the thang...maaaan.
