terrible! never ever again am i going to camp when the weather is not ho and sunny.

we had to be towed onto the field by a tractor
therr was mud everyhwere.

it was cold.
iut was pissing down constantly.
our blow up bed deflated on it's own.

dh was ill.

we decided to leave early and went to see about getting towed off the field and the battery had gone completely flat in the car.

the festival was the spititual home for every last hippy on earth!

lots and lots of the stuff was cancelled because of the weather.

it was shit.

Oh No! what a nightmare filch
...sounds really horrible

we didn't go away this weekend either in the end...ds started chucking up on Thursday...so thankfully the decision was made for us
I'm thinking that that towing on to the field was probably your first bad sign of things to come...were alarm bells ringing?

well quite! but we had driven for 3 hours and were meeting friends so we didn't want to turn around and go home!

just put in another wash to get rid of the mud.

have now got to see about getting a refund as all of sundays events were cancelled and a lot of saturdays too.

£260 Ive paid for the Big Chill Festival, first weekend in August and really dreading it now unless the weather takes a turn for the best.
