Oh, just back form first trip of the year and feeling all campy.
My number one handy hint would be: except that you will fall out with dh when putting tent up, much to the amusement of those around you blush

don't forget the salt and pepper!

Yes, that is a given. The putting up the tent argument, much like the putting up the Christmas tree argument.

my other one would be: don't forget the earplugs or the wine!

leaveyour kids at home and have wild sleeping bag sex

Socks, lots and lots of socks for the kids. They go through about 3 pairs a day.

Top tip is to take an insulated mug for your cuppa. That way, it'll last at least an hour (crucial when putting the tent up!) grin and your bedtime cuppa will last well into the night!

freeze a box of white wine before you go. (and then take it with you, obviously)

giggly Sun 20-Jul-08 21:52:03

sally you feel free to step forward anytime.
Wild sex on holiday shock my old bones would never handle it, well maybe after the whole box of wine.

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:53:35

Some of my best sex has been under canvas while trying not to alert the whole field what we were up to!

my camping tip would be to chill, and accept whatever weather is thrown your way.

sitting around in the evening drinking beer makes me really very cold, even after a hot day. Take a very warm coat and don't get cold before going to bed.

Lots of recognition re falling out with DH whilst putting up tent, LOL. I leave him to it now.
