leanne yep similar to ours! a big dome with 2 'bedrooms' - so how did you 'operate' the fridge???? how does it stay cold?
i am on the hunt for a nice gas bbq (portable one)
we bought 2 ready beds from millets (were on sale) and sleeping bags too
sarah said she'd have spare blowup bed (it's got so raised sides if i remember correctly)
yep, let's do another 'hope-it'll-stay-dry-dance'

Er you plugged it in, it got cold! if you don't go where there is elec you use a generator. (sold that too)
We got tons of sleeping bags, summer and winter ones,and two double beds, think we will get a king size so theres room for liv in with us. (Mark don't want his baby on her own :o)
Our bar-b was from local camp shop down here £25 (i think) millets are v expensive, ebay is better.
if you haven't got an elec lead with the outdoor adapter thingy, you can buy the adapter and attach it to a long extension lead, it is a LOT cheaper. (at least that's what mark has always used)
IS ANYONE DESPERATE FOR STUFF? PUT IT ON HERE WE, -OR SOME ELSE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP (CAMPING THINGS ONLY PLEASE, ;) don't get any ideas you lot.)

Dont forget ,
when you book in at the campsite, you must say if you want hook up. (electric)
Sorry if youve already done this , or know this ;)
Usually , in our experience anyway , it 's not standard for tents .
Im only putting my two penneth in cos when Ralph booked us in , with the caravan, the woman pointed out that she could squeeze us in , when we said we wanted hook up.
Depending on the voltage/watts at the site, plugging in too many electric items will trip the system!!
Asda , Morrisons, Aldi , Netto have all got cheap gas 2 ring burners at the moment by the way.
