    I was initially confused :confused: about that camper van ticket sale thing today .... however, good on all who managed their Hill of Death site occupation though ... :p


    Still, I just also rememberered that if we massive fail to get our jobs in April :eek:, our van stays here in Swansea** and so do we :( :mad:
    **Or possibly Portugal in Glasto's absence, with warmer sunshine (most likely ;) ) near Oporto than late 2019 near Pilton too ;) :D ;)

    West campervan field avoids the hill of death!

    True enough, but West CV field also imvolves a walk of about 17 miles to get on** site ;) :p

    ++ and also off,:thumbs: late at night

    So do some of the East CV fields; the ones furthest from the gate are probably as far from the action as any on the West. Anyway, a stroll in the morning clears the head, and I don't recall any occasion walking back at night!

    A year or two back I spent a happy couple of hours in the middle of the night dealing with a trackway malfunction that had vanished under a puddle and was rather dangerous- just steering people past it until a crew could fix it. That was on a busy track towards the west campervans. I did not find morose people on a 17 mile trek, resenting every blistered step, instead they'd carried on partying and many were happy to dance round my puddle, spreading the love. Almost made me wish I'd got a campervan, but nah, I like my tent too much.

    Mumford and sons confirmed for Saturday and Coldplay for Sunday. Cliff Richards will fill the oldie but goldie slot and Geoff Boycott will take the place of Mark Radcliffe as BBC correspondent stuck in the mud :cool:

    The karmic winds that influence such things have meant that I didn't get tickets initially....but now have managed to get hold of two for my wife and I. Only downside is that because we weren't expecting to be going, we didn't try to get campervan tickets and they've all sold out. I guess there will be a few in the April resale? Are there other ways to get them? Is it easier to buy and sell them than the full tickets? Thanks!

    Anyone with any insight to share on this would be the receiver of much adoration and maybe a cider or two....

    There will be some in the resale. But, also, some appear in dribs and drabs, randomly. Worth putting a change spotter on the relevant page, for automated notice of any changes. Also, you might get away with buying one off someone else, if you were to say when asked about the mishmatch in names that he's coming down to join you the following day. But it's a gamble.

    This year because I have time on my hands I am planning to walk to Glastonbury from Essex on public footpaths , 230 miles , 14 days , early in the planning stages but walking The Thames Path from Woolwich to Goring , then crossing to follow the Ridgeway to Avebury and then Pilgrims way to Pilton . Looking forward this year more than usual .

    That sounds like a superb plan hammerntongues and I'm sure you'll enjoy it .... :)

    But it does force the question : will you be carrying all your festie tat with you? :eek: :p

    no , walking with just a small rucksack and essentials , 3 t shirts , pants , socks , waterproof , hopefully will be able to wash once on the journey . I am a lucky man as I have friends who live within 3 miles of Pilton and will stay there , my wife will be driving down more sensibly . Over the years I have gradually backed away from hardcore camping , now I go out at around 2 each nigh and return refreshed , showered , shat ( spell check ? ) . girls all come in on Sunday locals tickets .

    Lucky locals and their guests! :thumbs: We know a couple who live in Pilton too, and we envy them .... :hmm:

    But as we're crew, who stay in a crew area, and who own a van, so our camping is far from hardcore anyway :D :)

    Lots of people are excited by Janelle she's on jazz apparently
