Very good ;)

Well that is it, holidays booked in at work, time to start with the camping equipment purchases! It is our Anniversary so I need to make the sleeping arrangements as palatial as is possible in a tent! I can't stretch to any of the hospitality packages, any one have any suggestions for making it memorable for SWMBO?

Cheers

Anyone got any suggestions for must have camping equipment? We are booked into the camping that comes with the tickets, not sure what there is in the way of facilities?

My camping is rather more basic (as in showers not worth bothering with) but its VERY near the track. Must haves. A portable shower :hehe: :hehe: :hehe: You put them somewhere to get warm then on top of the car and turn it on, its not bad. Then next must have is fine wine for when the shower fails or is freezing. Good food. What else do you need? I guess a good airbed blow uper, I seem to try a different one every year and STILL end up borrowing one from the guy next door.
