We have a soulpad 4000 lite

We have been to Cornwall twice - porthcothan near Mawgan Porth, in a lovely little off the beaten track campsite right on the cliffs. Watched a beautiful sunset on Friday evening. We have been to Burrator on Dartmoor.

We are planning on going to france at some point, but not sure when. We are planning on going back to the campsite we have just been to, and we are planning on finding as many little off the beaten track sites with good sea/river access as we can find before I stop camping for the year due to pregnancy.

What do I lust after? Long term, a woodburner. Short term (more realistic this year!) some bunting for my guy ropes and solar fairy lights for the inside of my tent.

What tent do you currently have? Outwell Vermont
Where have you been this year? Nowhere so far

What do you lust after camping wise? An extension for the tent would be nice but I suspect with the rest of the gear I might be pushing it getting it in the car! and no money left to buy it anyway.

then hope to go to North Wales in August and then probably a few weekend trips - back to Hoarwithy, maybe Symonds Yat or Malvern - oh yes and a trip to Devon too in July to see family smile. DD1 starts school in September so we will be at the mercy of school holidays next year sad

What do I lust after: happy kids and a chance to relax. Ooh and a Fat Airic and Outwell Lux sleeping bag.

MagNacarta Mon 15-Jun-09 15:26:06

Have just remembered what I long for most - a trailer to put all our stuff in. Lovely to have a big tent, but the poor dc's are jammed into the car.
