Dude, I see the points you got wrong when camping.

Heres the remedy:

Drink ALOT of ale, or LAGER if you absolutley must, although ale for men, lager, for girls.

It is well known that Ale is a superb warming agent, therefore the cold will not be an issue any longer.
Because Ale also causes drunkeness aswell as being a good heating agent, you wont care that the matress went down on you :shock:
and again, if you drink enough Ale, then the sound of the animals will become a soothing lullaby and rock you gently to sleep.

And if that doesn't work, get yourself a goat in there with you, that'll keep you warm, and provide entertainment if you get bored! :wink:

As for hot water, what the hell do you need that for?? I brought a kettle, enough for coffee to aid with the Ale induced headache.

So in short, all you need s
1:ALE
2:KETTLE
3:GOAT
4:ALE
5:COFFEE.

Sorted 8)

that thing must go like sh#t off a shovel mate. One seat too - practically Formula 1. Interesting collection in the background too - mobile barber van and double-decker ( Routemaster?). Is that your collection or do you work in a scrappie? :D

It's top speed is about 15mph! But it'll pull a bus without breaking a sweat.

The dekker is a Bristol VR, the barber shop a knackered Transit that I believe has now gone to the scrapyard in the sky.

Not a scrappies, that is where my little barn is, some of the buses onsite go, some are under restoration, and some will never go again.

The BX will be fine mate, whichever car I'm not using lives there, and theres a variety of ZX's and CX's that live there aswell.

Just keep me away from the truck if I've had a few pints! :wink:

Just thought I'd "bump" this.

I'm thinking about making a long weekend of it - ie camping Friday and Saturday nights, and heading for home on Sunday afternoon.

Who else will be about if I do that?
