Set up yesterday evening, all ok. Get up this morning...NO TEA BAGS

Now here's the thing, we've 117 items on our camping checklist and ticked everything off when packing up the car. It's 162 items if you include the food list too. Turns out that neither list features tea bags!

A small but vital bit of 'kit' left at home.

Guess it proves the checklist system works. Curiously they've never been forgotten before though!?

Shop opens at 9...and we've been up since 6.30. This is gonna be the best cuppa EVER, lol

Hope you managed to last until 9:00 and are now enjoying your cuppa.

That's one hell of a checklist !

Tea bags are or should be the first thing on the list!

What sort of campers are you?

I'm surprised you decide on having a cuppa after you set up yesterday and find out you were minus a box of tea bags or did you have something a little stronger?

Don't tell Jim Call!!!

But as an early riser not wishing to disturb everyone by using the cook tent...Kettle and stove etc...I have taken to using a small stove and kettle at the entrance to my small tent for the morning cuppa!! Tea bags always the 1st thing in my backpack....I know only too well that gasping feeling when you get up around 7am and need one and the rest of them don't start stirring from their beds till around 9am....

Best bit of the day cuppa in hand by the firepit watching the site come to life around you...

Jelboy.
