With the start of the season soooooo far away, just wondered what new tents/camping stuff you've all been buying to keep you going

We were going to get a bigger tent, (currently have a 2010 vango icarus 500) but instead, weve bought a 2011 enclosed canopy (45 off Amazon), the 2011 carpet and the footprint

Oh, and an Escort van with roof rack and tow bar (hmmm,trailer coming soon?) to carry it all in

I need to go camping, now!! Lol

I've been VERY good this winter and the only things I've bought/been given are a quecha tarp, some delta rock pegs plus some extra nylon deltas and a new roll of tenacious tape. I did quite giddy in Asda today when I found a 'really useful box' that's the perfect size for my camping bits and pieces - nobody should get that excited over a plastic box!

35 sleeps!

We Have tried to be Good, We have Just bought a Extension for Nevada M (72.50 - bargain) and a camping Table as an Xmas Present from My Parents.

We have only been camping 2 years, starting off with Borrowed stuff, the Table replace the last of this, so we are now fully kitted out.

I am fairly sure that I haven't bought anything for at least 3 months. Not sure how that has happened and maybe I need to rectify it :)

Bought new tent, carpet and footprint, folding table/ chairs, lamp with remote control for the bedroom pod so I can switch it on/off while snuggled up in bed, bag for footprint....can't think of anything else but I'm sure there'll be other things!

Oh yes, just remembered, I bought an airtight container for keeping the cooking oil in
