Weather wasn't too bad down in graffham thus weekend. We had the odd shower Friday night and yesterday afternoon. The bad bit was taking the tent down wet this morning as it was non stop drizzle and we were under trees.
We reversed the car under the awning and filled the boot with bedding, kitchen and all dry clean stuff. Then tooK the tent down and bundled the whole thing sopping wet into the roofbox.
It will stay in there overnight as it still peeing down at home. We should be able to put it up and dry it in the front garden tomorrow.
We have booked to go back next weekend as it was so nice and only 45mins from home. I've just dumped everything else in the garage and will repack it on Friday. My new cadac go grill was a triumph for pancakes, bacon and square sausage breakfasts.
Am in the same boat. really don't want yet ANOTHER wet weekend in the tent, trying to keep the kids dry and then having to sort out everyhting as soon as we get back. For the first time ever am thinking of giving it a miss this weekend.
Have to say after the summers we've had the last couple of years am starting to fall out of love with camping...
It was BLOODY WET for us too. And while setting up, the jockey wheel fell off the caravan causing it to lurch forward and land on my foot. Hence me also being drunk very early on Friday evening. I also lost my mobile phone somewhere in a field.
must not laugh but have just camped at Kalbarri in western australia. it's winter here and we only had rain the friday night and saturday from 10.30PM till 8AM sunday! it was cold at night ( 9 degrees) but the day time was fine. just drink lots of wine!
