  1. You can get the old tent pole Quechua 4.2 XL seconds pop ups tents on ebay from time to time. They're not super cheap still though.
  2. You're right - got my dates wrong. It's going to be sunny!!!
  3. Right, so I've done the only scientifically reasonable thing and checked the weather threads for 2016 and 2017 roughly 3 weeks out to see what the consensus was. The idea was to show that there was no accuracy in the reports that far ahead, but it backfired and it seems that roughly speaking the general wet 2016/dry 2017 trend was known at this time. 😩 Trying to think of something positive to say at the end of this, but science has spoken and is obviously never wrong.
  4. Not cheap, but apparently this is great for all types of terrain. Only used it down the park so far, and seems good - you can take kerbs and bumps at an angle without it tipping. https://www.handiworld.com/handimoova/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwocPnBRDFARIsAJJcf94ewdbtGOX6YsL1Tdsi4gbOf1ccvsuUW4EQpE-4KPLZ-EkTsHDJiAgaAo3zEALw_wcB
  5. They will be if Liverpool win on Saturday!
  6. If anyone knows if you can reorder the stages in Clashfinder though, that'd be handy. Would like William's Green higher up if poss, but can't see a way to do it.
  7. I found it wasn't updating for me either, but after a refresh it was fine.

    Yeah, that might make sense. I guess we'll see nearer the time then.

    Wonder what happened here then - not on the full drop today. My young son likes them, so a bit of a disappointment if they're not there.
  10. If the MPs really cared, they'd force through a law that ensures Glastonbury announcements have to come swiftly and without all this secrecy and long drawn-out process. The status quo means that the country's workforce productivity is at a low ebb as we all spend waaaaay too much time speculating about announcements that may or may not come and refreshing pages endlessly. Not to mention the environmental effect on all the unnecessary screen time which is powered by fossil fuels...
  11. Surely not? What if you forget something, or it breaks, etc...???
  12. Bought one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Mobile-Phone-Solar-Chargers/24000mAh-OLEBR-portable-capacity-Devices-RED-Red-Black/B071GKH2Y4 Wasn't the cheapest one, but thought it'd be good. Battery is fine, solar charging simply doesn't work.
  13. Anyone know if you can buy a car park ticket if you decide you need one after paying the balance? Worst case you can pay when you turn up, right?

    My son was just about to turn 2 when we took him in 2016 - he's been to Latitude and Truck a couple of times too. Despite 2016 being horrifically muddy, we had a great time. To be honest, I'd hate to go without him as it's great fun seeing it all through his eyes. My main tip is to play your Glasto playlist constantly in the house and in the car so they know the bands they're going to see and actually enjoy that part of it - doing that means it's never been a problem to get him to go and see bands and enjoy the weekend with us, rather than being stuck in the kids field. Having them dance on your shoulders as they watch their favourite band is an amazing experience. A wagon with big wheels is a must - this souped up garden wagon has done the trick for us for a few years now - the kid can sit back and relax and you do all the hard work . Cover it in fairy lights as night so people don't bump into it. You'll become a minor celebrity as people comment on the wagon everywhere you go, and normally you'll get a hand going up (or down) a steep hill. You'll need to plan what you carry around a lot more than normal obviously, but there's no real problems with loos or anything else.
