I have a very fancy camp kitchen. This does make me think it should be covered in pink fake fur, fairy lights and bunting. It is from blacks and has two foldy out things on each side, a drying mesh for my plates and a 'cupboard' with a rolly down door. I love my foldy out bits which are very useful for food preparation/wine glass.
It does have a slight design fault in that the wind protector thingy which is around the top is not tall enough to protect my burners from the wind when the burner bit is raised so that I can also do grilling.
But I lurv it.
I am eternally in love with my neighbour, who shares the same car style as me, for pointing out that the car actually has a fold out camping table IN THE BOOT!!!!
Oh, and I clicked on this because I saw fat airic. I have offended DH as his father's name is Eric. Ds1 needs a rolly out blowy mattress thingy to take on his week long camping trip with high school next week. I was hoping for tips. I believe I may have to warn the neighbours about downdraft when I open his 'packing' at the end of the week.
I drive the equivalent of a clown car. I am very organised and put camping stuff in in boxes so that I know where it all is.
Then the kids and DH get in with all their stuff. We look like one of those competitions to get the most students in a mini (although my car's a bit bigger). I'm convinced that with the slightest bump in the road all the doors will spring open and everything will burst out like a circus act.
bramble I knew you would have something fancy, you with your solar fairy lights and all. Oh and there is a thread with a zillion posts about the airics < haughty sniff> thermarests all the way here.
I saw the BEST kitchen arrangement ever this holiday, all built into the back of this blokes Mazda super camper van. It was all colour co-ordinated and sleek and possibly in high gloss. I went over and looked lovingly over his windbreak and he gave me a little tour.
Aitch, you clearly have misunderstood the truth behind camping. DC in the outdoors, fresh air, inspiring scenery, bonding wholesome family holidays reading Dick Francis with a head torch yadda yadda yadda
it is ALL about the purchasing of unnecessary wank that you then have to fit into your roof box.
Sal I'm off to Casey's tomorrow for a table perusal mission. I will fold them about to test for finger danger.
