Lessons learned on our camping trip ...
- If you buy an £8 tent from Tesco, you get what you pay for. It wasn't entirely waterproof. Fortunately it only rained on our second night, and Star and A-next-door only got a little bit wet.
- If you plan to cook outdoors in England, a windbreak is an essential piece of equipment. Otherwise you will find yourself trying to cook while simultaneously holding a golf umbrella at the appropriate angle.
- Take more spare gas canisters for your small gas cooker than you think you will need. Unless you want to find yourself out of gas and with no cup of tea or cooked breakfast on your last morning.
