You can come camping with me in one of my 5 tents! grin

Sal - we could camp together. I'm in the same predicament. Dh doesn't come away with us as hates it all. DD is 10 and I reckon I've only got antoehr 2 or 3 years before she declares a hatred for it.

I am worried I'm goint to be the mad old bat solo camping in a 5m bell tent. Maybe I'd be better off getting a 4m one!

Sal a bigger car would make sense but I can't afford a bigger car that is a convertible. I'm looking at getting a boot rack instead!

A Sunncamp Tarn that I can't put up, a Eurohike Dart which is the one I used when we did the MN camping weekend, a 3m bell tent - I need to make bunting but I do have fairylights, an Outwell Alderney pop up tent - it fits into the roof of the car as it's too big for the boot, and latest addition is a Vango Artemis 500 - which I'm hoping to squeeze I to the car (and probably on ds's lap) for our next camping trip in July.

I want an Outwell Trout Lake 4. If I had one I would lie in my sleeping bag and stroke the cotton inner. It will be the tent I get when I give in and get a sensible car.

Viva, I am looking forward to being the mad old bat camping solo in my 5m bell... if I don't have to pack DH and DD's sleeping bags I'll have more room in the boot for bunting and shite pretty things!

aw, you still have the memories though, right sal?

It's all about the experience and the memories and not the bit of fabric you were under.

Your three other tents will fill your tent void admirably.
