I am sooooooooooooo excited.  On Friday me and four other mums and our 8 kids are off camping for the weekend!!!!  Going shopping in the morning with one of my friends to buy all the provisions and can't wait to get packed up!!!  I am the only "camper" out of the group, the others have never camped so it should be fun to say the least!!!

I think we are going to have a fab weekend - freedom, campfires, lovely long walks - and maybe (just maybe) a glass of wine now and then!!!!

Roll on Friday

Sounds great! Due to my hubby's work commitments, I often camp on my own with the children. It would be great to share it with other mums, but unfortunately most of my friends arn't campers. I often try to convince them to try it - I even offer to borrow them one of my many tents, but alas, they don't seem to have the same enthusiasm for camping as I do. In fact I usually end up taking their kids with me...Mmmm...perhaps that's where I'm going wrong How did you manage to convince your friends?

Funnily enough most of them have always said "ooh no, don't think I could camp" - but I think because i'm always saying how much the kids love it and how much freedom there is - and I think maybe the final push was "how about mums and kids only"!!!! although I have told them I hope they're good at lighting a fire by rubbing sticks together!!!!!

Im sure you'll find a few converts in your group, even if its only the kids! It still amazes me how some people look at us like we're demented when they know we camp. There are lots of misconceptions around.

Have a grand time!

Done this with various Mum's over the last couple of years especially as we're all forces families and often have to organise our time ourselves.  Don't go very far but far enough for it to feel like a break.  Last year my friend got tent envy of my Monty and went on Ebay when she got back and got an even bigger version!  It's really great fun, like a holiday with the girls as the kids are having a ball together.  You'll have a ball!

You go girls!!!! Hope you have a fantastic time!!!

Never ceases to amaze me when you read a thread like this...man/woman likes camping...Man/Woman invites non camping friends....Friends(most of the time) have a brill time...and so we have more converts to this great pastime!!!

Of course you get the odd bad report back...But on the whole...most reports are positive..with comments like..."Why havent we done THIS before"...."That was Great" etc etc.........

Look forward to your post camp report Molly..........

Jelboy.
