We'll be at the meet on 19th August and are all booked up for the camping on the Saturday and Sunday nights too. You might have seen our names on the list and not know who we are. We have already been members of the Adbrits site for a little while now , so some of you lot will already know us, but we thought it was about time we joined up on here so we can introduce ourselves to anyone who doesn't already know us. After all, we will be meeting you all in person soon. :) It's fairly obvious from our title what our names are, we have 2 daughters 11 and 7. We currently live in Goole, East Yorkshire, although Simon is originally from Nottingham and I am from York. Simon and the kids have never been camping before in their lives and I haven't been since I was a kid so it certainly will be a bit adventure for us. We may be in need of a bit of assistance (or even a lot ;)).
Anyway look forward to meeting you all soon.

Hey Leanne love your idea bout the girls and boys tents. I think it should be posted as a MUST.
I would happily buy a separate tent for me to sleep in whilst Steve sleeps in the other with the kids.
May need some ear plugs tho, as Molly will search me out wherever I go.

hello simon and carol and welcome!!!
guess what guys? because we had such a lovely day here in berkshire (for once!!!) we got all our camping gear out and checked it through. ashley got all the beds blown up - no worries, with an electric pump ;) - and sleeping bags are airing! we haven't used the things in over 3 years!!!
are we excited?!?!? ehm .....

We are really excited too, haven't mentioned it to kids in case the weather that shall not be named hits (the word i stated was strictly prohibited, due to it being cursed by a very powerful location charm, when ever it is mentioned a powerful magical force is alerted and thus the said word is well...er delivered. its true Harry told me so.)
This is me in my sleeping bag, just hope its not to

Just been looking on line at long range weather forecasts and most sites agree that August will be , and more
I shall believe it when I see it though. ;)

pete let's hope they are right ... for once!!
leanne i wouldn't mind so much if they were snoring - after all the boys tent is quite away from ours, right?! BUT they do have the kids in with them and they certainly need their sleep or they'll be soo grumpy the next day ... so yes, NO snoring for the boys!
how they will achieve that i do not know

Hi Simon and Carol,

Not long now till the camp , have you had a practice in the garden yet, an all nighter?
Do you still want to borrow the gas stove, and shall i bring the pump ?
Ralphs bought a 4 foot aussie flag to fly from his long fishing pole, so you'll know where we are when you arrive , come over to us and we'll help you get the tent up.
Ralphs still trying to get me to take our tent instead of the caravan, so if its a good forcast, we may well do that.
We will keep a look out for you , see you there.

We don't have one. We're not planning on doing a lot of cooking on our first attempt at camping but it would be nice to be able to make ourselves a cup of tea if nothing else. What do we need to do about buying gas? Again, yes the pump would be useful too if you don't mind. Great idea to put a big Aussie flag up, now everyone will know where you are. Your help will be very much appreciated. Yeah, I think you should definitely take the tent if the weather forecast's good ... you should rough it like the rest of us. LOL. Surely we must be due some good weather by then. Look forward to seeing you when we get there.
Thanks mOZzy for your welcome. :D See you there.
