we went to norfolk last year in august and stayed at a shocking site
we managed to get our tent pitched before all hell broke loose and we were one of the few tents who didnt flood.
but we had only been on the park 3 hours when we had a flash storm, wind rain thunder lightening, it was so bad that the entire bottom half of the campsite flooded, so badly that there were children sitting on airbeds bobbing around in the pond that once was their tent.
some of the families actually booked into a local hotel and there was only my tent (khyam ontario 8) and a few outwells that didnt get flooded.
now our tent stood up really well in the unexpected conditions and we had no brekages although the poles flexed quite a lot and my children were petrified we were completely fine, however, i have booked to go to cornwall in august 2011 for 7 nights staying at a lovely park but after reading the reviews on the park on here im slightly worried now because a lot of the reviews state its a windy park and quite exposed.
is there anything other than (*whispers* delta pegs) i can do to look after my tent and ensure a no tears trip
camping sets you free !!!
