Thanks for the info about your toilet schedule! Be sure to update us on your progress during the festival! :P

If you're using a roll of bog roll a day, you might want to consult a doctor. :P

I have the world's most arsehole of a tent to put up too. A Sunncamp Silhouette. It's usually a two-man job, but managed it myself a few days ago. It takes me a good hour pissing around with it to get it done.

However, I have duly noted I have omitted to buy tent-pegs. Ooops. Quick stop somewhere in the morning, then...

I also have no wellies, so may well pick up a pair. If the weather is like this today, no chance it will dry off before tomorrow.

Ach, it's camping, you're meant to get a bit muddy...

Remind me - do we need to show ID when picking up wristbands?

Hi all, quick question, is gel fuel ok to bring for camping? i.e. will it be considered "solid" fuel like hexamine?

I don't know about fuels so can't help I'm afraid.

Never been asked. But if you are picking up tickets then you do need ID.

I would also bring ID if you are young or young looking as you may be refused entry if you are unaccompanied by an adult (such as an 18 year old that looks about 15) and may be refused alcohol. So better safe than sorry. Just keep any ID safe.
