Tenner for 50cl! So not mega cheap but tasty!

I've literally just pulled up outside an Aldi (coincidentally) so I might just check it out! Thanks.

Started a detox! I’ve been drinking way too much recently and I want to have a much healthier three weeks before leaving for England. A period off the booze will help me feel much better about myself and put me in a good place to enjoy the festival.

I’m also really giddy!! The “one month to go” posts on Instagram haven’t helped. I’ve told myself that I’m not allowed to start packing until June. Hurry up June!!!

I’ve been wanting to do another test tent pitch but this time sort all the guide ropes so they are right sized to speed up the pitch. 

For the past few weekend when it comes to the time that I want to do it, it has been raining, including today.

Ditto! I've got a week for now (the last before Glastonbury) so I need a days good weather!

Bought cheap pop up tent, sleeping bag, torch. Never take my decent gear there, As long as it lasts the three days It will do fine. Best bit is I won’t have to pitch it this year, few friends are going on Tuesday night, so there taking my tent with them, I’m not going till Friday morning, as it’s only a 20/25 min drive I’ll be there at 9am. 3 days is enough for me these days.

Went to Asda today and saw they’re selling self inflating mattresses which would certainly be easier to carry there and back than an air bed but they don’t look particularly thick/comfortable.

Anyone used one before?

I don’t know about the asda ones but I bought this from amazon last year and slept 4 nights on it. It’s as comfortable as an air bed and you don’t get that layer of cold air either. That and it packs up really small too https://www.amazon.co.uk/SGODDE-Inflating-Inflatable-Waterproof-Comfortable/dp/B079FZTC93

I’m ok for another couple of weeks, we have already had it up to make sure everything is fine, but I want to be doubly sure.

We have just had our tent up. Tell you what putting a tent up together is a true test of a relationship :lol:

My door has a zip down both sides and one was broken. We’ve managed to fix it and it’s shut but might operate a strict “Do not use that side of the door” rule as there is no way I’ll be able to do that drunk!

My personal relationship favourite is unknowingly driving the wrong way into a McDonald's drive through in the van (no signs) , finding out they don't even stock what your wife wanted, discovering an overhang prevents you driving forward, reversing into a bush that cracks the bumper, and eventually getting out before going round the corner to shout at the van worse than Basil Fawlty with his mini. I'm now familiar with fibre glass and filler.

I know I should do a tents test since they have both been packed away since the epic 2016 ( 2017 it was just me and I took a smaller tent to fit the space my friends kept for me as I arrived later on Thursday). I know I should pitch both up to check and to do a bit of waterproofing but I am not sure I can be bothered ?

motivate me!

Well I can’t speak for everyone but putting mine up just filled me with excitement that the next time I do it will be on the farm!

Get some music on, have a drink and set the tent(s) up. Maybe listen to a Glastonbury playlist.

Tested the awning on the camper van last week and just spent 3 days in Rome doing between 12 - 20k walking each day. Also bought some cider tins although one of the boxes came open in my hands so now only has half the number of tins inside ?
