:shock: Wash your mouth out! I love camping, just everything about it.* I'm always uncomfortable trying to get to sleep on a proper bed when I get back.

Also should point out most of the photos (actually possibly all of the ones I've posted on here) are the other half's work cos he's much cleverer than me at cameras and stuff :oops:





* That's not strictly true. I don't love waking up in the middle of the night freezing cold desperate for a wee and remember you've got to go outside and get rained on to get to the toilets. Some leg crossing was had.

Depends on the fitness of your bladder, in that case, or whether you're clever and remember to go before bed. This case hasn't been considered from all angles, I request a retrial.

You'll have to build a very good case in your defence before any retrial! :wink:

You're up against - Cold / Wind / Rain and Communal Bogs ("I'd leave
it 10 minutes if I were you") :shock: , and that's just for starters. :wink:

Also:

1. Sleeping (if you can get any sleep with a tent peg and/or a rock jabbing you in the arse) in a confined space that smells of rubber. Or worse.
2. Having to put the tent up in the first place.
3. Getting showered in a building resembling a gas chamber and having to remember to take EVERYTHING with you.
4. Eating tinned meatballs and drinking coffee that tastes like tin for as long as you're daft enough to stay there.
5. Staggering back from the pub and having to walk for a mile to use the loo before you crawl back into pathetic little tent (having almost gatecrashed 6 others 'cos you could have sworn they were yours)
6. Having to pay to spend time in all of this discomfort.

I can't believe I'm about to admit this but I actually like communal toilets (as long as they're clean obviously). But I don't expect to gain much support on that one so I'll leave it out of my official defence.

- Feeling completely and totally free in a way I just never seem to manage anywhere else.
- Staying somewhere beauuutiful for much cheapness (v. important cos I'm skint).
- AIRBEDS :D
- Sound of rain on tent & feeling all cosy inside :oops:
- Watching people try and fail to put up new / unnecessarily complicated tents.
- You can bring your dog. (I don't have one yet but at some point this is going to be important.)
- Can wander about outside in pyjamas without anyone thinking you're too weird.

There. Camping not shite. Camping often cold (or indeed wayyy too warm on a hot morning in a tent), toilets often miles off (or not the cleanest, although the loos at Great Langdale are lovely if anyone's interested), rain often plentiful, and a mouse sneaked in and ate half a cereal bar. But not shite :D

I guess it all comes down to whether you mind roughing it or not. And ~I HATE roughing it.

Yeahh definitely a matter of tastes.

Although I do not approve of tinned meatballs :pale:... I'm not a huge fan of tinned anything...

Except this:

langdale. did you go to the sticklebarn and dungeon ghyll pubs? great boozers. as a negative, there's also trying to get to sleep while some pissed cocknocker is singing/shouting/rowing/fighting/snoring or all of them at once. :wink:

Old Dungeon Ghyll is the better of the two - the new one is a bit plastic, from what I remember. ODG is properly rustic, in a good way.

My one and only camping holiday was in the Lakes, the bloke i was with insisted on bringing his motorbike into the tent at nights.


And that's wrong? :eh?
