200 Days and a Confession
« on: May 26, 2015, 06:46:54 pm »
200 Days done and dusted today so happy days.

Just back from a bank holiday camping trip and after many years finally cracked on the hook up. Freezing on Saturday night so a trip to Go Outdoors for a cable and Argos for a heater and we have now entered the world of glamping. It will be kettles and tv's next time ! :(

On the plus side on the camping, didn't have to spend most of the time "checking the guide ropes", ie having a crafty one behind the tent ! ::)

200 Days and a Confession

Lol, my folks have a trailer tent and I have to say, it's a bit of a shock going back to a regular frame tent after being in that!  And the electric hookup is mega useful but we only ever have it for lights, a little blow heater if it's very cold and the little fridge.  TV has only ever gone camping once and that was for the final of Wimbledon!

200 days is fabulous and I love to see you breaking all those summer triggers - you're doing GREAT!!! 8)

Well done on 200 hundred days :foundbeer:

Spent many a happy holiday camping with wife No 1, she may not agree, but camping in France with communual showers, bbq's every night and drinking cheap French plonk, did it for me.

Oh happy day's

KK ;)

Its All highs and lows with camping. Best bits are great
Sunny day playing rounders, cricket, catch etc, bbq, good company best holiday going, Cornwall down near Lands End my favorite spot.
Add a bit of wind and rain, and rapidly becomes a living nightmare. It was just cold this weekend, 1st night despite many layers, quilt and sleeping bag was freezing. Feel a bit of a fraud to the camping gods, but a £20 little convector heater does and half make it more comfortable :)

Well done on 200 days Andrew.  Hope you are planning a suitable celebration.

Pleased you enjoyed your camping trip.  The heater, well thats just common sense as far as I'm concerned.  I've never worked out why I don't like camping.  It looks fun and I'm used to being outdoors whatever the weather with the dogs and horses. But I stayed in a tent once when I went to Glastonbury 17 years ago and have never felt the need to repeat the experience!

Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

"glamping"  I like that word ;D

Great going on 200 days Andrew and where are you going 'glamping' for your next achievement? :nobeer:  Weather will have warmed up by then won't it.

Hurrah for Our Andrew!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: That really is one mega-achievement. Well done you!  :)

And there's nowt to be ashamed of re a bit of glamping. We defected from camping to renting holiday cottages yonks ago. I've decided I'm too old to do tents for more than the odd night these days... :D
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

regardless of glamping or clamping 200 days is a brilliant achievement.  Well done you.
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.
