I'm packed - huzzah!

I've tried really hard to keep the amount of stuff I'm taking to leeds under control and I've failed miserably.

I have:

large tent and my trusty badger trolley to transport it

gazebo

3 festival chairs

big golf brolly

humungous rucksack full of blankets, mattress, sleeping bag, stereo, washing up bowl and some drinks

humungous rucksack full of shoes, clothes, assorted girly crap and a loo roll

shoulder bag full of drinks

small rucksack full of booze

big bag with duvet and pillow

big stackabox with stove, pans etc, lantern, gas, voice changing megaphone, water carrier and other assorted crap that we can all share at the campsite

coolbag with more booze, food and a melon

Cos I've "packed light", I don't have:

The trusty cow flag and flagpole

some battery powered fairy lights to decorate the gazebo

as many plasters as I usually take and no strepsils

I've done really craply haven't I?

I can't believe that I used to go to festivals on the coach and I used to just have a big camping rucksack and a small rucksack's worth of stuff with me B)B) When I first started festivalling, I'd have a small tent, a sleeping bag, a roll mat, a change of clothes, my toothbrush and my makeup! Oh, and a few bottles of booze and some bourbon biscuits. I never used to need a sleeping bag, a pillow, a duvet, an air mattress and a blanket to keep warm! Never used to bother with a stove, or a gazebo and chairs, any food that needed to be kept cool, a stereo, washing bowl, towels (shower? at a festival??) or any of the crap that I deem "necessary" to have with me.

In a way I'd like to go back to having everything I need for a 5 day party in 2 bags, and not have to do 2 trips to the car to get everything to the campsite. However, I enjoy the way I do festivals now... Nothing wrong with a bit of luxury!

(And yeah, it is useful that I'll be camped next to my car in the workers campsite). I'm working selling programmes at leeds festival as per usual this year. I still haven't confirmed with woman in charge of programme selling what time we'll need to get there, so I'd best give her a call tomoz.

We did indeed have a gazebo with fairy lights on it, but it wouldn't have been me as my gazebo died on the sunday afternoon :lol:

Are you coming to the Thursday efests meet? I'm gonna be there and I'd like to meet you as you seem really sound :)

Am getting all excited for the festival now - hopefully see you in a few days!
