Ah, okay! I hate having to pack light - I can't do it! I've only been to one G2G by train, G2G4, and it was so much harder packing. I even drove all teh way to Belgium last year rather thantrying to take all my camping stuff on the train
HI. Average warm sleeping bag and camp blanket will do. The accommodation is heated so should be okay. Although it's old cottage type buildings so may not be toasty.
Off to fill the car with food now in a minute. Absolutly pouring it down this morning! Not good for Golf or Camp Fires. Looks like it's starting to clear though so might be hot and sunny later. You never know in Wales you see like init.
I got my sleeping bag and my camp blanket and towel are doubling up as a pillow coz I aint got room! I've already had 3 changes of jumper this morning as I decided I didn't want to go on the train in my Guiders hoodie with all my badges on! lol
I'm setting off in an hour and should see Dizzy and Mike at Barry by 1600 hopefully... can't wait now!!!
I'm good at Micro packing when i need to be, and this is the first g2g i will have been to where i haven't travelled at least part way on public transport!! So for once i am not trying to stuff everything into one rucksack
yours can't think you're worse than mine thinks i am alone! who else would voluntarily spend a weekend picking grapes from a vine you don't own and then making 22 gallons of wine in one go with them all! And then asking everyone around you to give you their recycling so you can bottle said wine!
My luggage looks a bit mental but that's more because I can't find my sleeping bag's stuff sack, so it's uncompressed in a dry bag instead, I have the big bag of food (soooo glad to be getting rid of that from my hallway - it's been there since March and G2G5), and a sewing machine. I may well just throw in the kitchen sink for good measure
I have got my light weight sleeping bag, a jumper if i need it and my camp blanket which is v.warm, I can't justify lugging the 3-season monstrosity out in the pouring rain, or carting it into the majority of my induction lectures along with a large rucksack!
Dawn - if you could throw one in, just incase it is freezing. I should be fine, but if you have space for a just incase blanket that would be lovely
