Are you expecting more floods? [Eek!]

Came back from two weeks' camping on Tuesday - everything should be washed, dried and ironed in time to go to GB next Friday morning!

Just the usual. But the canoe will keep the small ones amused for hours. It did last year, anyway. And it forms a focal point for our group. See, it does make sense. [Big Grin]

I'm sorry everyone but I forgot all about The Book. [Hot and Hormonal]
Last year, when I returned to The Tank at the end of the weekend to pick it up they had lost it! They didn't know anything about it and in fact didn't know it existed. The original book had three years of messages from Shipmates so it was getting to be quite a good souvenir.

Do you want me to arrange to bring a new book?

If this is something we want to continue to do can someone say so - ie by Wednesday night so I can go and find a suitably nautical book?
Also can someone PM me with an email address of someone at the Tank so we can make it a bit more official - then it may not disappear.

We just trawled through the local Sainsbury's and are now well stocked on pasta, rice, assorted sauces, canned veg and other odds and ends. Everything you need for a weekends fine dining at Greenbelt. Plus a few luxuries, a couple of bottles of beer and some wine.

I've bought a new sleeping bag today, since my old one is falling to bits. I'll stock up on some food later in the week.

One or two minor lineup additions. dfg are there again - I must actually try to see them this year, since I've missed them every time so far.

Currently thinking of new sleeping bags, since Mrs per Minute 'feels the cold' - and as the nights are expected to be chilly for southern Britain in August (yes, Alan, not really cold by Scottish standards), warmer sleeping bags may make for a happier Greenbelt!

Otherwise, all we need now is a new torch - everything else is filling up the spare bedroom (including a flysheet airing after returning from France). Have to tidy it up before the mother-in-law arrives the day before GB - she may be camping with us for the weekend, but I think she expects a proper bed the night before!

Nope! I've posted quite a few times in the last few pages about camping I think!! (You may be confusing me with last year - I stayed in the student accomodation and it was FAB. I booked too late for a repeat performance of that sadly!)

We may get a shower at Alex's parents place though [Smile]

An update on Sounds of Salvation. We very nearly had to do the weekend with a Tenor Sax player due to a set of circumstances involving bowling, a low hanging lamp shade and a Nintendo Wii.

Thankfully the tendons were ok*, so I'll be sporting a bandage and seven stitches and now no one will have to ask me how I got the injury so I won't have to tell anyone.

* They're white. Was quite surprised to see them.

Apart from embarrassment, I'm grand. Though I'm supposed to keep the bandage clean and dry. How does that work? I wash with water!

Also, my post above should say "without a Tenor Sax player." Otherwise it doesn't make sense.

Going to greenbelt for the first time. Am very excited! (and nervous, haven't done camping since I was a nipper)

Is the SoF doing anything special? It may have been discussed on earlier pages but I'm in an internet cafe and can't afford to pay for enough time to read it all...

Also any advice re:camping would be nice. I'll be camping close by some friends, maybe in the Outerspace thingy but am not sure.

I'd love to get to know some of you guys so if you want to PM me please do, it might be better than derailing the thread answering dumb newbie q's [Smile]

For those travelling in by train...

Public transport serves the racecourse and a bus appears at Cheltenham Spa at ten minute intervals starting at .09 the hour (daytime). The journey then takes around 25mins.

This info was stolen from the traveline website so I take no responsibilities for any error that is contained above... well to be frank looking bedraggled, friendly and tired tends to get you a lift from the station anyway...

Yeah I need to look at food now... hmmm ... got three days job training then onto site on Thursday.

Well, I thought going to see Runrig at Loch Ness yesterday would be good practice for Greenbelt, but I do hope not. We spent about 7 hours out in the pouring rain in an arena which rapidly became a mudbath, and then had to push the car out of the even more of a mudbath carpark (I so hope the people who helped us found people to help them push theirs out - there was nowhere to stop so we could return the favour).

So I'm hoping next weekend is going to involve lots less rain and less mud, but just as much good music.

So, yes, Greenbelt. Mud. The long range weather forecast suggests that thursday & friday will be dry & sunny. Let's hope the weekend is the same. [Smile]

Okay, having read the last 5 pages (I got bored at that point), I think the following are planning on camping with Shippies:

Auntie Doris +? – 2 large tents
Emma, Alex, +1 – 2 ?? tents
Pants – 2 small tents
Alan, Flausa + Weewan – 1 large tent
Quizmaster, Atlana – 1 large tent
Ken – 1 small tent
Genie – 1 small tent
Tractor Girl

And these people I’m not sure about cos I don’t think they’ve said either way
Persephone (or whatever she’s now called!)?
Screwtape?
Paul?
Quercus?

Am I right or not? (Just trying to get a vague idea cos it sounds like Auntie Doris and I will be the first there).

Thanks but I love my little tent [Biased] Also its actually very light to carry - a weekend's worth of food for two is a lot heavier!

I think I'll just reconcile myself to missing a Saturday afternoon session and going into town to buy some food!

Yep, one small tent.

Though she's currently in Wales and hasn't answered her mobile for four days so I still don't know if she's managed to arrange a lift or will be coming with me on the train. So haven't been able to buy tickets yet.

As long as it doesn't rain while I'm putting up my tent I'm OK. I camped in pouring rain in June and it was fine - but the rain helf off while the tent went up so I could put a dry pack into it.

You will all come and say hello in the craft/Infinite Beads tent, won't you?

I'll probably be dipping candles or dyeing T-shirts.

Might as well ask the bloody cat.

Pants, I don't intend sleeping under the stars & so can you put me down as:

Tractor Girl, Third Party and Third Party's friend = 1 small & 1 large tent.
Possibly also one other large tent (with a family known to TP in).

I just have one large tent, the communal gazebo and the most ridiculous amount of stuff!

Doris (and anybody else), if you run out of space for all of your stuff one of the bedrooms in our large tent is going to be used as a storage area.

I'm on and off site twice a day, and going past Tesco's. Will happily take orders, or take people!

Many big thank yous to those who sponsored us.

I use £6m of military hardware to find hidden Tupperware in the woods.

To be honest it is not storing it when I get there that will be the problem... it will be getting it all in the bloody car to start with!
