This year at Leeds I had to pick my other half straight up from work but we had to stop off at Ikea first

Secuity - " This car has got tents , sleeing bags , alcohol , drugs and white shelving in ! "

The other year rang a mate who was late to find out if he had arrived on site yet , the conversation was

"Are you in the car parks yet ? "

"No I am in Morrissons getting printer ink , its on special offer ! "

And one year I am sure one of our crew was late due to stopping off at a garden centre !

I had to drive to a funeral several hundred miles in the wrong direction once. Dashed from the funeral back into the car and all the way back down again and past where I started off. Took me hours and hours but had to be done.

Set off to Glasto 99 in a car we had all chipped in to buy especially for the trip, went over a cattle grid and lost the entire exhaust...doh!!

Not Glasto but on way to Knockengorroch a long time ago, via 2 Drunk in Public gigs, van caught fire in Liverpool, got that fixed and then had total electrics failure in the middle of nowhere in Scotland, after 4-hr AA wait, ended up getting trailored to nearest town, spent night in police carpark and finally got on site for Saturday lunch...
