+2 for this - we used it last year for 2 phones all 5 days of Glastonbury. I think it still had a half charge when we got home

will hopefully be plus 3 for this having purchased in the black friday deals . perfect for charging overnight but maybe a bit heavy for carrying about ?

£13.64 now for the red one. thats half the price of the other colours.

Sweet I'll have to pick one up. I had a 16000mAh one last year that lasted all 5 days of Glastonbury until the coach home. My phone died as I got on the coach and I got 10% charge on the charger before that died as well.

The charger itself broke the other day though so I need a new one

I'm not sure the missus could manage carrying that as far as Big Ground.

Get her in training now, it'll be easy.

Yeah, just give her gas and air and keep saying 'push, push'.

Under 5 months, so I decided to get the list of stuff I need during my lunch break. It looks bloody expensive, but the over riding excitement covers that.

Amazon have got a garden trolley on a lightning deal tonight. I got one a few years ago, and it was really useful though did clog up pretty badly in the heavy mud, but to be fair, everything else did as well, except for tractors.

For some reason this is my favourite thread during the pre Glastonbury buzz. When all the festival essentials and bargains start cropping up it really is just round the corner ..!

nice spot thanks :) 

I need to up my sock game this year but I refuse to splash out on 1000 mile socks, so I need to start testing alternatives soon

last year I went for a cheap hiking sock from Go Outdoors that did not look after me

Seriously, just buy 2 packs of 5 pairs of bog standard cotton socks and wear 2 pairs.  No blisters, no hassle, instead of the friction from boots/wellies being between the sock and the skin it is between the 2 socks, completely prevents all the usual ailments and putting a brand new pair of socks on each day feels like heaven.
