    My cheap one is navy blue but camping in Scotland mostly involves a different relationship with heat! :D

    My camping kit has got bigger and bigger. I’m taking a king size duvet and double height air bed. I suspect the duvet won’t be needed but I was freezing at IOW last year.

    I’ve just bought the last of my supplies for Boardmasters.

    I don’t need cooking stuff as meals are provided.
    Ive got:
    Lidl gin
    Morgan’s spiced
    Ginger ale
    Box of red wine
    Cereal bars
    Nuts and raisins
    2 packets of pasta and sauce in case I miss dinner.

    Just checked the self-inflating mats - One Gelert and one Trespass. The Trespass has the integral pillow but I'd say the Gelert is more comfortable due to its material/finish. I use a little blow-up pillow with it.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    Having just spent the weekend at Waspfest I would add to the list that some sort of Honey Buzzard will come in handy.
