Just thinking about starting to write a list of the stuff we'll need, plus of course all the good stuff we just want to bring! Mind you, we have actually gone so far as to book a van this year; I can't keep sending two of them on the train because the car is so chock-a-block!

I've got an exam on Friday so not thinking past that at the moment. But I have decent checklist that I made after the first year and update after each event so I think a weekend should enough time to food shop and to pack.

I need one of them. Not for the Moot, but last big camping outing I packed the car really early, then needed some space in the back for something and took out some of the bulky stuff. Which I forgot to put back! I had to drive home to get the sleep mats, then back whereupon I had a couple of beers and cooked. Much later, at bedtime, I realised I’d also taken out the sleeping bags bar one skinny Gelert thing which I generously shared with my wife. Not a happy night with her and two dogs competing for a scrap of covers. :D

Have a great time everyone, and take lots of pics. I’ll be sending John a couple of decent sized slabs of homemade biltong in the next day or so, so make sure to hassle him for a bit. Just announcing this because I’m fairly sure it’ll be a private feast if I don’t, him and probably Tony furtively scoffing the lot. :D

Lean topside of beef. Soy and molasses sugar marinade, then pink salt, lots of coarse black pepper, onion powder, and dried garlic. My garage smells awesome. :)

Step 1, review previous moots and decide that it's not worth breaking the axle and to buy a trailer
Step 2, buy cheap trailer, realise it's screwed
Step 3, fix cheap trailer (now expensive trailer)
Step 4, go on holiday to mallorca???
Step 5, realise you're going to scout camp before the moot and you've done no packing.
Step 6, panic.
Step 7, remember you've still not bought moot tickets.
Step 8, still not packed, continue panicking.

We are nearly done. Just clothes left. Still need to make my Sith lord cloak though. And to mess things up totally I'm off on a road trip to Bridgend to pick up a van I stupidly put a bid on Ebay and won!

Oooh this is getting hard. Duch oven is out ....too heavy. Where is my bow going? Where can I squeeze in my fishing stuff or shall I just bring a dip net? Decisions decisions! Will I ever be ready?

Might be a bit cooler next week. Even so it will hopefully be nice and warm. I hate it when it's wet and cold. 20 degrees is best. My back garden thermometer is registering 50 degrees but it is a south facing sun trap. Bit too hot to give the lawn a haircut with the push mower before I leave. I'll be doing it in the cooler dark in a bikini! (Arrgh no ! wot a sight!) I started melting earlier I swear! :) :)

I havent decided which tent to use; it probably will be my frame tent (I am certain that is fabsiled) but its such a pain to erect...

OK, I've started now - well I've started the list :)

I've got a bit list of a plus 2 boxes packed and ready to load.

Just have to go out to get a 7kg calor gas refill, 8 litres of paraffin, my meds and some other bits.

Then the serious business of packing begins :)
