DH has a plan for our next camping trip.

Bet you can't guess what he thinks is necessary.

A generator?

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 12-Jul-09 22:14:27

Much more worrying than that.

We campers don't do this kind of game do we?

Oh ok then.

A dustbuster.


Because the tent gets bits of grass and sand in it and it bothers him.


Goober Sun 12-Jul-09 22:20:06

Where will he charge it?

He wants to camp and be closer to nature, but nature should not come close to him?

He has a thing about floors.

But this is getting ridiculous.

Can you imagine camping next door to someone and seeing them get out a dustbuster.

Nappy grin

Mary i said no as neighbours might think i had a vibrator in my tent with me grin. It is good idea though if you already have one but i would never tell my dh that.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 12-Jul-09 22:34:26

We don't have one. He's thinking of buying it specially.

Which really makes it worse. I'm hoping the expense of a new table (which we do need) and new pegs will put him off.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 12-Jul-09 22:35:34

LOL at suspicious vibrator noises. I'll have to sit ostentatiously outside on my own.

Nappyzoneisabeetrootrunner Sun 12-Jul-09 22:38:09

ha ha - oooo a new table - them foldy aluminim ones are on offer in makro this week im going to have myself one for £14.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 12-Jul-09 22:40:24

Nah. Sounds good, but £14 on a table isn't nearly enough to distract him from buying a dustbuster.

Blimey I was embarrassed enough about the squeaking of the pump blowing up my air bed...any vibrational noises and I'd have had to stay in the tent wink

<waves to Sally> Came back online to look at....camping sites grin Is there a campers-anonymous? wink

FantasticMissFox Mon 13-Jul-09 21:11:48

dietstartstomorrow Mon 13-Jul-09 21:18:35

lol - I would piss myself seeing the 'neighbours' dust-busting while camping grin

Although it is starting to sound like quite a good idea.

<diet heads off to to check out dust-busters>
