Anyone lucky enough to be away?

TheFallenNinja Sat 17-Aug-13 08:04:41

I wish. Back garden for me.

Gracie990 Sat 17-Aug-13 08:21:20

Are you pitching in it? :-)

EasyMark Sat 17-Aug-13 17:36:44

Im going to Red Shoot camping site in Ringwood New Forest. Anyone else?

poorbuthappy Sat 17-Aug-13 17:47:51

We are away over the bank holiday.
Would be lovely (and naive) to think the sun will last that long. grin

Suns would be good, we have a garden to play/sit and MN in and we could do with another BBQ.

I can tell you why ... My children return to their Scottish schools on Tuesday! Enjoy.

YellowDinosaur Sat 17-Aug-13 18:00:23

We're off to Scotland next week but the week after we're going here

Can't wait!

IpsyUpsyDaisyDo Sat 17-Aug-13 18:04:37

We're off to Budemeadows campsite in Cornwall on Monday for 10 days - we've had our fingers and toes crossed for weeks that the nice weather would last grin. I don't think the temps are going to match the highs in the south east (where we love), but if it doesn't rain we won't complain smile

TheHappyCamper Sat 17-Aug-13 18:04:55

We have just booked Nayburn Lock in York for Mon-Weds when we saw the forecast. I am very happy smile

Are you going somewhere nice?

IpsyUpsyDaisyDo Sat 17-Aug-13 18:05:12

Love = live

CMOTDibbler Sat 17-Aug-13 20:39:01

We're off to Wadebridge for 4 nights this week - can't wait as its a small site with a pool so hopefully the kids will just be in and out of the pool

Where are these golden suns? Not in the NW of England I bet as I need to wash my sleeping bags & clean the groundsheet before going off again please.
Mind you it would be nice not to be experiencing 'bastard syphilitic rain' to quote slubber smile

typical.we're just back from a week of torrential rain which was grim sad

WhoNickedMyName Sat 17-Aug-13 22:17:10

We're going to Devon tomorrow, staying there for a week. Forecast for Tuesday onwards looks great grin.

duchesse Sat 17-Aug-13 22:25:53

We live in Devon. Just having a couple of days of rain but otherwise has been non-stop sunshine and summer since the 3rd week in June. It's fab and frankly, we deserve it after last year! grin

KnappShappeyShipwright Sat 17-Aug-13 22:34:54

Forest of Dean for seven nights for us from Monday. Like duchesse I think we're owed it after last summer. Hanging on to the tent in 50mph winds was not my idea of a good time.

MrsMcEnroe Sat 17-Aug-13 22:37:16

We're going to Eweleze this Weds-Thurs, can't wait. Bring on the big fat smiley suns!! Spent 4 days at the Dower House campsite in Thetford Forest (Norfolk) last week and I highly recommend it.

Pixel Sat 17-Aug-13 23:42:31

We are off tomorrow to Ringwood area. It's blowing a gale outside atm so I'm rather worried. Don't mind so much putting the tent up in the rain because we bought a flysheet first model for that reason, but wind is a different matter!

MummyPigsFatTummy Sun 18-Aug-13 00:20:27

We are at eweleaze at the moment Mrsmcenroe. Lovely yesterday. Rain and high winds today. Poles snapping evrywhere. Just calming now. Looking good for next week though so have a great time!

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 18-Aug-13 00:22:30

West Wales.

Purely on the basis of all those suns smile

Gracie990 Sun 18-Aug-13 07:59:57

We are camping mon- Friday. We are lucky it was booked months ago. We have been very lucky with weather this year ( touch wood) three very hot camping trips.

I would love to chase the sun, but then everywhere good is booked. <Dilema.>

Happy camping everyone.

FourArms Sun 18-Aug-13 08:52:47

We're going on Thu for the BH. Would love a 4th sunny camping trip to round off the year. smile

DumSpiroSpero Sun 18-Aug-13 09:33:33

Am having to pray it will last into next week are we're off to Cornwall for 5 nights on the Bank hol Monday.

AngelsWithSilverWings Sun 18-Aug-13 09:44:06

We are off to Long Meadow in The New Forest tomorrow. Packed the car yesterday and can't wait to go!

We usually camp in May and June when the nights are still vey cold so I'm trying to get my head around possibly being too hot in my sleeping bag!

Just wish we had booked a week rather than 4 nights but when I phoned to try and extend our stay they were fully booked.
