Y'know how some of us keep count of the number of nights we camp in a year, and display it in our signature? Well, I have a Dilemma...
Does New Years eve count as the last night of 2017, or the first night of 2018?
Got 4 nights booked, from the 29th, to the 2nd. Our very first camping over the festive period.
Got to risk putting our beloved tent on hardstanding, but that was always going to happen at some stage, what with us being addicted to all year round camping, and only a handful of sites offering grass pitches through the winter.
We'll be joined by my niece and her partner in their caravan for the 4 nights, and our son and his girlfriend for the 30th & 31st, in our Freddy (Kampa Frinton 4 Classic).
Sleeping in the tent of course, but with the added bonus of spending the cold, dark... and very, very long... evenings in a nice warm cosy caravan! I hope they don't insist on silence from 11pm!! Don't normally turn in at New Year until 00:15!!
Hoping to get 2, or even 4, more nights in before then, but have to say, we're very much somewhat extra-excited to be seeing the New Year in on a campsite for the first time. Hopefully, it will start the New Year off as we mean to go on!
2018: Just the 8 nights thus far :-(
2017: 34 nights/8 camps
2016: 32 nights/8 camps
2015: 38 nights/11 camps
2014: 34 nights/10 camps
2013: 36 nights
