Tell me why it's supposed to be fun when i've been woken up at 3.45 by incredibly noisy people and a couple are shagging in a nearby tent? I want to go back to sleep! (I'm on my phone posting btw)

phone posting - you must be desperate!

I like camping but am bad sleeper - you need a good torch and a good book and do loads of stuff they day before to knacker you out.

Glare at shaggers in the morning!

I always take ear plugs (just cheap foam ones from boots/superdrug etc) - they seem to work for me.
Hope you manage to get back to sleep soon.

It's all part and parcel.. and why shouldn't people shag at 4 am

Just shag louder.
The fresh air and lack of house dust mites will make you feel so good you won't care about lack of sleep.

I don't mind people shagging but do they have to be so noisy when they are in a tent? Others woke up and complained too! (we were at a hockey tournament!)
luckily dd didn't wake up and have to listen to it.
I'm camping next weekend and will invest in earplugs to take with me

take an eyemask too - means you can sleep later in the morning. I was a bit sceptical when I first went camping as an adult with dependants, but have to say our first trip was so successful and I am hooked! We have already done 3 trips this year, with at least 2 more to come

Thanks for that tip Panda! I did notice how light it was getting so early too!
