I am on my last night of a 6-night trip, in a canvas tent, with EHU and a heater etc...

It has been a lovely trip, nice weather except for the low temperature, sunny most of the time with light winds.

The camp site is quiet, and tonight my tent is the only unit in a big field, very peaceful.

Glad I camped over Easter.

                  We were going to book a camping trip over Easter,but decided against it.Although it looks nice in the sun its still blooming cold.I dont think any trip is enjoyable in this sort of weather.





You can make it enjoyable, with the right gear.
Layers, EHU, fan heater, appropriate bed set up, Baileys! :-)

Admittedly, this camping lark is still "new and exciting", for us, but with the exception of January (due to simply not making the time), we have managed to get away each month, since we started last July, including waking up to a couple of inches of snow on our tent.... and we have enjoyed each trip as much as the other.
There's a lot to be said for looking out on to a white campsite, as you sit with hot cuppa of a morning, realising you have been warm, dry, and snug all night!

Gone are the days of camping in the cold.

Camped in the snow one easter with friends. Year i left school.

Oh, kids and me did quite a bit when kids were young. One year me and oh went to hayfield (where sunday nights the village was filmed). Would watch the layer of ice get lower in the water bottle on a morning, and the milk squeeze out the top of the milk container.

Those were the days!!!

I too prefer cold and sunny, rather than hot and sunny.

I would only visit my mum in the Far East at the end of November, and I'll be in my Hawaiian shirts, shorts and Crocs, when everyone else will be wearing jumpers and coats!

One of the reasons I decided to stay in this country is the weather. When I stepped out of the plane back in Sep 1979, and breathed the cool damp cold air when I landed at Heathrow around 06:00h, I said to myself, "I like it here!"

You make me think its time I stepped up to the challenge.  Having only used our van twice last year it looks like I need to toughen up if I'm going to get any use out of this year.

LOL   I am happy I am not alone!  We're growing in numbers though as I have one other friend who is also a nippy/sunny weather fan!
