Does anyone go camping?
We’ve never been before but are seriously considering trying it this year in the Summer holidays. I was hoping we might be able to have a more exotoc holiday, or at least one that involves an aeroplane but unless we win the lotter it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen so we thought camping in the UK might be a good alternative.
To practice, we’ve bought a little 2 man tent from B&Q (complete bargain at £11) and set it up in the garden. It was a loads easier than I thought to set up although to be fair we do appear to have a few spare ropes and pegs left over so somethings not quite right! But it’s looking sturdy enough and the kids are pretending to sleep out in it at the minute so I’ve just put the spare bits back in the box 😉
Not bad for a tenner. We’ve seen a four man, 2 bedroomed tent for £99 and that includes, airbeds, sleeping bags and all sorts of camping stuff that apparently I wont be able to live without if we do go, but we thought we would try the smaller one in the garden first – Baby steps and all that!
I can’t decide if I could handle camping, I just can’t see how you could have a good nights sleep in a tent! And what do you do if you need a wee in the night, or when it’s time for a shower and where would I plug my straighteners in lol. Then there’s my main concern (apart from spiders that is) what do you do if it rains!
Seriously though, I think it might be a great way to get away cheaply so I’m going to have a look into it a bit more. If anyone knows any good campsites or anywhere I can find out about them, I’d be really grateful.
