Camping
Not in the After 8 way.

The current Mrs Madeeasy has tried to get me to go along at various times but I have managed to book a work trip. However she has been slippery and booked it when I have my kids knowing I then have to go.

It sounds like my idea of hell.

Furnish me with tips to make it through these 4 days of living in the cold like a hobo.

We are going with 3 other couples and their boys, so at least the kids can play football.

Help

It’s shit. My misses always drags me to a local site with the kids once a year. I have made a habit of waking early, driving home on the pretence of feeding the dog so I can and spend a few hours on the sofa chilling. Hot shower, some breakfast and then return to the shithole campsite mid morning. Just about makes it bearable.

Camping is for..

1.poor people

2.tramps

3.anyone who has a head torch/wetwipes/compass/hand warmer in tyheir pile of crap in the garage.

4.Anyone who collects The Sun holiday tokens.

5.Anyone who deep down hates their kids/wife.


Life is too short to spend your time under canvas...although a night in a tent in your garden when your kids are under 5 for the fun of it is kind of acceptable.

We have 4/5 weeks in France every Summer; if you have the right gear, it's brilliant.

Huge modern Outwell Airbeam, sets up in 20 minutes, proper fridge, decent beds with 4cm air pads and quality sleeping bags, campingaz party grill 600 / kitchen stove, carpeted floors, table, chairs and sun chairs, etc etc. Can't beat it, you can feel the difference in yourself within the first few days.

Overnight ferry out of Portsmouth... drive on, find your cabin, get your head down, arrive 7am fully rested and ready to rock. Down to the Alma Centre at Rennes for lunch, then down to the site and set up and chilling by mid afternoon. 300yds to the beach, plenty of beaches, bars and restaurants, Plage des Dames on Noirmoutier Island, Jean de Monts, Sable d'Olonne, La Rochelle... or just do nothing in the hot sun, swim, eat, drink, chat and s-l-o-w down. Ace.

Millions of people fly over France every year to other destinations, and that's fine by me.

Kids absolutely love camping.

Basically they can fuck off and do whatever they want, as most sites are secluded and safe and so they make the most of it.

Re: Camping
It'll be a good way of making the kids not want to stay with you anymore, clever but bang out of order by her.

Re: Camping
I go with the kid a couple of times a year for up to three nights.

We go to the woods. Dig a hole in the ground for shitting in, there is a cold water tap close by but that is about the only mod con.

Build a fire, use a camping stove, walks to the pub, it's all good.

It is uncomfortable as fuck in the tent even with a sleeping mat under the sleeping bag but that's all part of the fun.

Alcohol is your friend.

Mrs LMH doesn't come camping, fucking spa break tart that she is.

Re: Camping
Surprise her with a stay at a luxury spa hotel instead. She can go get all the treatments the women love, you can eat and drink all day. Wi-Fi for the kids.

Actually I love a bit of camping, but more putting on a rucksack and heading off into the wilderness.

Good sleeping pad/mat, warm sleeping bag, pillows from home. Get a place where you can have a fire if you can.

Re: Camping
Glamping is the way forwards.

Creley park down near Exeter is ideal if you have kids, as has an amusement park next door.
