How the Other Half Camps

Found this when looking for photos/illustrations for our ECW wargaming project.

I have to say it was with some trepidation that I joined them as I haven’t been camping for at least 30 years! My fears were confirmed on the first night, as I crawled into the tent borrowed from my sister, cold, damp and running with condensation. The air bed had a slow puncture, and I intensely dislike sleeping in sleeping bags, so my misery was complete. However everything else about the weekend was wonderful, so I announced that I would be joining them next year, but with a tent I could stand up in (see below), and a ‘Comfy Bed’!

I bumped into Blackwell's a few times back in the day, but don't know or remember anyone from them. Have fun, Sue.

LOL! Thank you :-D

I believe that if you are going to do something, do it in comfort. Re-enacting is about having fun after all ;-)
