    Hi,

    Am packing sleeping bags ect. How cold is it in the sleeping areas? is it layer up and freeze type temperature or will there be some warmth so we can pack indoor weight sleeping gear?

    Thanks

    Clare

    Don't know I'm afraid but am constrained for space on plane so if I want any clothes....I think the camp blanket might not make the cut!!!

    I'm planning on two season sleeping bag with a liner, and camp blanket. I'd rather take too many layers of bedding and get rid of some than not enough and be too cold.

    I get cold easily, as those who shared a room with me at Brownsea know, where I ended up with everyone's spare blankets!

    The issue with that is me carrying my kit around uni all day, I can't just shove in everything I really want to, as it has to fit under the desk in the library, next to me in lectures... ...

    This packing light thing is hard!

    Clara, I'll shove an extra blanket in my car for you in case you need it, if you just bring your normal stuff!

    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!!!

    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 :)

    My packing isn't too bad thank god cos it sounds like i'm going to need space in my car for Chandra's stuff.

    I can also through a spare blanket if necessary.
