    Green Man Festival 2018

    We drove out at 2am and barely saw another vehicle between Crickhowell and Witney The burst water main and road diversions that seem to have caused long delays in Orange were in place in the middle of the night, though, so I reckon that they had had at least six to eight hours to sort it before everyone started leaving en mass! Other than Phil 'boring' Wang (we left after 10 mins as he was regurgitating Generic Panel Show Jokes) and the woeful lack of toilets on both site and campsites, we had a brilliant time. Great weather, fantastic selection of beers and food, and some truly sublime musical performances.

    Looking forward to seeing folk over the weekend - some new and some old faces, I hope! I will try and make the meetup tomorrow afternoon. I’m short and plump with blonde hair dyed pink, so I should be easy to spot! Safe travels (and stay dry, those already on site!)

    Right, I've made a list. Leaving packing to last think tomorrow when I've got more idea of the weather. I'm going to leave the wellies in the car in case it gets really terrible, but hoping I can just do walking boots all weekend for 'dodgy ankle' purposes.

    It was ace. I don't want to even begin to think how much I drank but I was completely hangover-free the next day!

    I'm just making a Goan Fish Curry... it smells good, but it won't be the same. And I'll be eating it off a plate, with proper cutlery. And the drink I have with it won't be in a floppy paper cup. Every cloud...

    I think me and @amfy were dancing on tables by this time on the Wednesday... I'd had gin-inna-tin for breakfast and had carried on, so I was bladdered, frankly

    I would have breakfasted on Gin in a Tin and would be well on my way to being properly tiddled by now.
