My dear old dad has decided that he 'wants to get more involved' in the lives of his three kids, so has been spending a bit of time with each of us this summer. He's been staying with me in the woods/at my house this week and said that he wanted to come with me to a show. I thought the Moot would be ideal He hasn't put up a tent since he was 11 years old and I suspect he thinks everything in our little world is more than a bit strange, but he is game to try new things and to give it a go. He's dug out one of my old tents and some decrepit old camping gear (tin plate, roll mats, stove top kettles, etc) and is staying out in my woods this weekend to test them out before the Moot in case there is anything that needs replacing. Should be interesting. So far I have suggested that at 60+ he might want more than a roll mat under him and that the child's size Mr Men sleeping bag might not be sufficient in Wales I've tried describing how friendly and inviting everybody there is and I know he won't be disappointed. We'll be arriving on wednesday and staying, hopefully, for 6 or 7 days. Since he won't fit in my car with all of my gear, he will drive himself. This means two things: firstly I have more space to bring stuff (hee hee) and secondly, he might just get lost whilst following me So if you should happen to see a bewildered older version of me (minus the beard) walking around, be gentle. His name is Roy btw.
