Ah, new thread.
There'd better be an ATM somewhere, I've only got a small amount of spendable money.
Weather forecast has gotten better, so hopefully (touch wood) we'll have some nice weather. Won't be a scorcher, but will be pleasant.
Chance to rain has decreased by 20% and the temperate prediction has raised by about 5 or 6 degrees.
Genuinely excited, this is better than christmas.
If I'd have known you lot were all setting off so early I would have booked an earlier train, it would have been cheaper too. Ah well, too late now.
Makes me wish I could live in the UK
Leaving now. Have a good time!
Cheers. Have fun in the Galapagos!
Any suggestions for food to buy? Going shopping today. Anything we need/you suggest?
If you can get a rounders/softball set that'd be good.
I'm going to Tesco later tonight, I'll see what kind of sports gear I can get from there
Good luck to everyone.
I have officially left to go camping. Currently staying in Newcastle with APWD007 and Jon Taylor for the weekend, then heading to the campsite on Monday.
Things I have forgotten to bring so far:
Theres a point, if I remember to bring anything then it should be a towel and some decent boots.
Your feet, perhaps?
Anyone got an actual address of the campsite? Also, I saw Bengley was on about phone numbers, mine is 07794451530
There's only one campsite in Grizedale
today i went to tesco and bought me some food supplies, including some malted milks and milk buttons so that when i can find some marshmallows we can have some smores! yum
Is there anyway for Bengley to charge his camera on site? Is there a way to sweet talk the owners into letting him charge it?
"Don't worry Acezorz, in just a few days you'll be sitting around a campfire with Hezzy eating delicious hot schmoes!"
Gah, week is turning out shit, wish I'd decided to bother coming to this now looks like it's gonna be fun.
Stealthy 'hiding camera behind a sink' is required.
You can get small battery packs that you charge from but I know the one I used to take camping (bought from a camping shop) was quite expensive, might not be worth it.
Dunno what camera he's got but mine usually lasts a full week of use on a single charge.
My DSLR lasts ages, but my video camera has a 50 minute battery life.
