The best build up to the festival one could wish for and the first thing I have looked for in the morning for a couple of weeks.

Cap doffed for the efforts. And Arlo the star

21th June

T-1. One more sleep ( if you can).

The current weather and ground conditions in Pilton are :
*  HFH records 16.0 degrees at 0808 with humidity above 95%. Average temp at time of reading, over the past 21 days, is 18.0. Low of 13.3 and max 25.3 degrees. Consequent tent conditions - getting sweaty with the onset of panting and flatulence.


* RAM jam jar is empty, as expected. Todays duckometer reading is 0.0 mm. The total rainfall in 21 days of June is 28mm. 15mm in a single day. Ducky has gone to the pool.


* Diver is praising like he should.


* Current wind condition - still. Miss Pat is currently reading Pyramid stage.  Al Ci, 1 okta.

* Sticky stick has left for Portugal in his bus. The Well retreats into obscurity. Ground condition is Large black dog eating rabbit scut, with the sound of buzzards thermalling. 

And that’s a wrap folks! Arlo, Pilton Digger and I will see you at the village fete tomorrow. Less pants, more party…… and remember to wear sunscreen.

Reports have been amazing again this year Dee. I'd have been in a tizzy with all the weather nonsense, but knowing what it's actually like on the farm has kept me sane! Can't wait to buy you and @pilton digger a bevvy at some point, and Arlo a soft drink of his choice.

Also can't lie, had a little tear up at the Big Dog pics this morning. The lead and collar pretty much finished me off. Muchos love and see you down there!

I felt this had become my job - got ideas above my station 😄

Here's the graph. I can update tomorrow too. I make the total rain fall 28.5 mm due to the 0.5mm reading on June 8th. 

Top work Dee.

Sterling work from the whole family - have enjoyed the daily reports and Arlo’s pics. Thanks Dee - hope you all have a great festival - glad Big Dog made an appearance at the end. 😀

Thanks for all the updates - entertaining and informative till the last! Oh, and what a beautiful tribute to Big Dog. 😍😢

Hope you have an amazing festival! 😀

There is light rain forecast for the whole weekend and it doesn't take much to turn the main thoroughfares into mud baths. And with the hot-ish weather we have been having we could get a rogue storm.

 

i would take a hat. sun cream and wellies. The wellies are also handy for the toilets. There are some mucky sods out there!

I would suggest that you try the weather thread for doom and gloom. There will be weather.  It will be OK.

I didn’t - and that would explain why craft ales can often give me pretty bad acid reflux. 
Do you know if there’s a reliable way of finding out which beers have and haven’t used it? 

In short, no I don't think there's an easy way as it's used in such small quantities as a processing aid it doesn't have to be listed as an ingredient. It's also not one of the allergens we have to declare on packaging so no help that way either - sorry!

Oh sure. It is only weather as long as you are reasonably prepared. People seem to forget that it is just camping with music, not a fashion parade

I think you maybe in the wrong thread mate. Try another one that gives a toss

Thank you everyone for your messages. They mean a lot. Wasn't sure for awhile if we were talking to the animals for 3 weeks. 

I really hope you have a great time at the fete. Don't forget to have a go on the bottle stall and hoopla. 

Will see some of you at the wednesday meet and others in the rave fields of the naughty corner.

Adios amigos
