So, I finished painting these this morning, then promptly fell over them and fractured my arm.... So yeah, there's that! 🙈😢

Oh my goodness, are you in plaster? Actually how did you break your arm?

Are you on instagram under greencrafts - I think I've seen a picture of your boots and x ray :-(

Got my bus (a yellow US School Bus converted to a motorhome) past its MOT.  The compressed air tank leaks, so that still needs fixing...

Not in plaster, just a brace, so very conscious of knocking it or anything 😕. I literally fell over when getting off the sofa. What an idiot! Can't use it for two weeks, but should be fully healed for June at least!

Yes, that's me too! We chatted about your exciting opportunity this year: glad work gave the go ahead! 

Here are the boots; they still need some work but looks like that's going to have to wait!

That was meant in a nice way, I'm only jealous! 

I bought a camp bed for '17 - wouldn't go back to anything else now.

A tad off topic - but been looking for the "ultra" HD aerial photo of Glasto where you can zoom in (to the point where you can try and find your tent).

Anyone know where this is? I know it was done for 2015/16 but not sure about '17. 

Thanks

It was removed, can't remember the reason why. Think @Keithy might be able to shed some light.

That was https://glastomap.com/. Permission to use the photo was withdrawn.

However if you download Google Earth Pro to your PC and search for Worthy Farm, then you can basically get the same functionality. Google have the 2017 festival available under Historical Imagery (you have to set the view to HDTV to get the best results)

The image I extracted below is the site at that time and allows to zoom a bit however it's just a jpeg so you soon begin to lose detail.GF2017-2.thumb.jpg.89171dfb3858aebc2218ec9299d38f4f.jpg

What time of day was that taken? Must be real early hours. Looks weird as there's thousands of tents there, but you can't see any people anywhere! All the stages and communal areas are completely empty.

How come permission was withdrawn? Just down to usage rights or the festival not wanting such a detailed aerial view of the layout?

Judging by tent densities, It's going to be about noon, give or take an hour. You can see plenty people at the gates or queueing outside.

It's from the Wednesday in 2017, which was blazing sunshine and hot as anything, so most people who are actually on site and set up at that point won't be out in the open.

I don't think the chap who ran GlastoMap ever got a full explanation. I think security issues was banded about but nothing official.

I was hoping to create a website map using the embedded Google Earth /Maps image but Google (not evil ha!) have drastically changed the API usage:

Not sure on the time. I think there was an image for each day on Google Earth. Will have a look this evening.

Just assembled this bad boy...

I too got the exact same one last week. Do your wheels have a bit of 'slide' on them? Mine seems as though the axle is slightly too long and the wheels can slide on the axle.
