I've heard a rumour that some families attempting to isolate from each other and have more space are setting up tents in their gardens and adults or children are sleeping in them, can anyone confirm this.

Enjoy the liveliness of the syntax.

Not started yet but ready. As the one out and about all arrangements made. Tent, Porta potti, camping Shower, Stove, coolbox, Entering house unnecessary other than use of washing machine, I will use this overnight and after using will give it a disinfectant rinse cycle and a full wipe down on the outside. That could change and go to hand washing laundry. Yes hand washing laundry is the sensible option.

Only 2 degrees outside at the moment so would prefer warmer weather but if needs must I will still go. Sounds like a expedition not a trip to the bottom of the garden !

That was a coincidence because I was only saying to my wife this afternoon that if I became ill she would have to sleep in the tent in the garden

yup, the folding camper is on standby if (or when) one of us gets it. i know by then it is possible to have infected the whole family but needs must with a son with asthma.

luckily i have an enclosed double driveway at the back of the house so plenty of room.

i also have a shed and a 15`x 8` insulated room (ex hot tub) next to the camper that can be pressed into use for ablutions.

Tell us more about 'self inflating' Matt, we're all dying to know, dear.

I'm already using the camper just to put a bit of breathing space between me and the family, so glad it locks from inside

I think garden camping is the closest we are going to get to the real thing for a while, by the sound of it. Hope it warms up a bit if any of you have to self-isolate in the garden! I live alone, so have the run of my place, but I can see how it could be very valuable to families. Even if there was no need to self-isolate, it's extra usable living space so people can spread out a bit.

Always have slept up the garden occasionally summer or winter in my little lavvu?

A neighbours son is living up the top of his Mums garden quite happily, in a spare lavvu I had, that I gave him.............(no space in cottage..)
Nothing to do with self isolation, just the need, or the pleasure of sleeping out......

I think I have missed my chance,

My partner has been ill with the virus for 11 days. No one is chez tent, but neither teens nor I have become ill.

A tent in this weather is no place for someone with Corvid19, it really isnít.

I don't think anyone was suggesting that anyone diagnosed with with Covid 19 should sleep out in a tent

I hope you and your family are all as well as can be, best wishes.

My O/H suggested we should pitch a tent in the garden so that, if we become ill, emergency services can easily access our bodies and we won't contaminate the house!

I have sleep apnoea but really struggle to use CPAP and always breathe easier when camping, or have the house windows open.

It might actually not be a bad idea to sleep in a tent if exhibiting symptoms. So long as your garden isn't a postage stamp and you're able to pitch well away from boundaries, that is!

I can't remember exactly why we had the FC out of the garage and on the drive but we decided to sleep in it, just because it is comfortable.
Me and the Grandson also camped in it, he's only 5 and we did it just because we could.
Obvious couldn't do that with him now.
That was last summer.
We only have a small drive on a 1960's estate, the neighbours must think we are mad!
