Guys, Ann and I have taken the week starting 10/05/10 off together, not sure what we will be getting up to yet but I believe it wont include a 3 day pass out so please dont include me as any kind of 'support'.
Having said that, if we are not going far then I can see us turning up on the day for moral support.
Can offer the use of our 14' x 10' 1/2 room columbia Squal Ridge tent to anyone for the weekend, its roomy, can stand up in it and its in pretty good condition, last I checked :)

Regards,
Dave c

My tent is a coleman 4 man,it consists of two rooms [one at each end]and a large central section, total tent area is 4.6mx2.3m, smaller than yours :?
I also have a massive canopy that extends the front.We've never put this up as its been too windy and theres only the two of us camping,more bodies makes it easy though.
Though i have no issue if you want to puff away,smoke what you want :D
It's this one -

Ill bring a flat gas stove and gas light,its not the brightest but more than enough to drink by :wink: and it adds to the heat
Axe and saw also,if there is camp fires allowed,it makes all the difference to have this stuff.Now do i bring my chainsaw too :twisted:
Any other equipment you think we need pipe up,lest we forget[Tin opener]

Whats the deal with food-

Some sort of joint effort? or every man for himself :D

The secret to camping is to get drunk before retiring for the night, nothing like a little anaesthesia :lol:

Surely even Jimi can do that :wink:
