Mayhem Camping It Up™?

Wed May 03, 2006 2:14 pm

Hello! :W

Well, a lot of us have rooms at Splash Landings sorted out for the Friday night prior to Saturday's official meet.

But a lot of us do like to stay on the Saturday night and have a few more beers and do the park on the Sunday as well.

As I doubt many of us would be able to afford the hotel on the Saturday night, we were wondering who would like to Camp It Up™? :P Craig and I are definitely thinking about it, we'd go to our usual place near Cheadle, which is around £10 per night per tent.

For anybody who's not been on a Camping It Up™ trip, you do not understand how FUN they are! :P Lots of beer and fun!! Go to http://www.croftybaby.co.uk, click on the TTF Meet videos, scroll to the bottom and watch Camping It Up2 for an idea (a very loose idea, the cameraman was having too much fun to film all the really funny bits tut :P).

Post below if you'd be interested in doing this so we can book the campsite ASAP! :W

I am interested, but i will need to be cheeky and ask can i share a tent with anybody?

27th-28th will be the dates of that weekend for anybody who doesn't know.

Just like the last few times, i will be there for the fun and NOT the beer, so stop worrying Kaycee :wink: (im kidding :D ).

Hoorah! I hope that people will camp, im gutted about missing the july camp it up, so this would tottaly make up for it! :D

I'll be getting another anul pass this year so just need a tent to sleep in, if anybody is kind enough? :D. If not i'll sleep up a tree, or providing any nearby hills are knocking about then up there if Vik cant help me out! :P

I won't be able to, but i'll try and make the July one. I am going to by a bounceback ticket so that it costs me less next time.

I'm sure it would be fun, but never mind!

I will stay over if I can stay in someone's tent, saves me travelling an hour back then an hour there to get there the Sunday. Otherwise it is just the Saturday for me. :(

At least I am there for the Saturday. :D

Tom. :)

I'll see if anybody has the Sunday booked off work and i'll report back this Saturday. I might need to share a tent if anybody can?

I'll be able to drive anybody from the park to the campsite and back again

Can't help you on that dave. Though i think they can easily take a big rucksack in. Don't qoute me on anything, but if you'v got 2 peices of baggage try sticking them or the contents into one big bag and see if you can or not.
i remember having to fork out £6 so that my "backpack" and JCB bag with good handles could be kept there and DStone had to pay £3 for his one camping bag complete with tent.

OK, i'm a maybe now! I've had a think, and, I could probably make it. But i don't have a tent; unless I can get hold of one from home - nor do I drive. :-?

I'll say if im a definite ASAP.

(anyone able to offer a spare place in a tent / lift to the site please let me know)

Ill be up for a bit of camping it up me thinks. Better check my tent out, see what state its in after months in the garage.

2 Berth tent, but barely room for me having had a few to many pork pies, so unlikely anybody else could squeeze in. Though can offer a space or 2 in my car for anyone that needs a lift, providing I can find the place again of course. :roll:

Will the yellow "Rave" tent be making an appearance?

Haha. :D

ANT! Get SL Hotel sorted, pronto! I'm dead excited about you and Sammie being there, it's gonna be so much FUN! :W

There are three spaces in Craig's car, I imagine we'll take Ray (as always :roll: and does he ever pay petrol money? No! :P :lol: LMAO JOKE), but we'll take whoever else needs a lift as well if we got room. So evil cod, astrodancer, don't worry about lifts, there's ALWAYS spare spaces. :D

Jay, are you definitely coming now after what you said earlier?

Jade - fat chance. :P

Ant - get it sorted mister! Report back to me. ;) :lol:

So excited (I'm really not a sad person in general, I'm just very excitable about pretty much everything as Craig will moan to you about). :D:D

If people could post below if they are DEFINITELY planning on camping, how many tents they're bringing and how much spare space they have, that would be great.

Something like:

"I am definitely camping.
I have ONE tent.
I have two spare spaces for other people"

Then sort out in this topic who is sharing with whom.

I'd like to book the campsite by the beginning of next week so we can definitely get in. :)
