At Bramidan,

Your neighbours may think you're mad if you camp out there now however I bet in a few weeks with better weather they will all be jealous that you are able to have a 'holiday' and the rest of them cannot (unless they also have tents, FCs or caravans).

Thank you Caligula.

I thought people were planning to put the afflicted out in isolation in tents

I would have been more than happy to sleep out in the tent in the sleet this weekend if it meant avoiding the dread virus! 11 days and counting of horrible fever, aches, headache, no appetite or energy, and no sense of smell or taste.

But luckily it hasnít spread to the rest of us.

So no excuse to buy a smaller tent that will fit in the garden

Learned a new term this evening; the drivecation, having a caravan holiday on your own drive just outside the house.

The little lavvu is perfect for that and so snug!! I hang a little UCO candle light therein and enjoy a good book at night..........


Keep well, best wishes

Nooooo! Today Mr F put grass seed in patches on the back grass, so not much room to put up our tent, yet. Bramston, what is the term for a tent camper with tent in their garden?

I'm looking forward to some garden camping. Cut a tree back in preparation to make more space. The washblock facilities are quite good and close to our pitch.

Hello all, back in this forum after several years break after I changed to a little old caravan. I sold nearly all my "tent collection" but kept my 1970's Danish Trio frame tent, and I am very glad that I have kept it. It can just fit into my tiny garden.
I am living with my teenager in a tiny one bedroom house, and she might have to go back to school here in Denmark up to the summer holidays. In that case I will self isolate in the Trio tent, because I have asthma and have to be careful not to get the virus. I am working from home, so the tent will not only be a way to self isolate, but also a measure to keep sane, although I must say that my daughter is Denmark's most understanding and peaceful teenager. Well, I am sure she will be happy that Mum gets out of her way and hides in the tent.

-------------
Proud owner of a 1987 Sprite Alpine 370 EK, a cheap popup tent and a beloved retro Trio frame tent from the early seventies, called Giraffen.

Thank you Bramston, yard-cation. .

Ha, ha Les! At least the wash block will be clean and not a queue. The wash block will never be shut for an hour for a clean, just long enough for the floor to clean & dry. Bet the pitch fees are cheap!!

And there will be no chance of a random child skipping past blowing bubbles as they go!

Or kids with those massive bubble blowers. Or bubble machines...

I might never camp anywhere else ever again!

Might need to move house to upgrade my pitch size and view though.

Welcome back pingvin! The tent in the garden sounds like a good idea on a number of levels.

Ah, garden camping - tonight was the night decided upon for my grandsons (and their daddy, they're only 7 & 9) to have a garden camp. After days of perfect weather, what did it do this evening? Rain and thunder! *sigh* Mummy was keeping the dog company in the house and was just a wee bit smug.

Have always loved the sound of a good bit of rain on canvas, especially at nighttime

Yes, rain can be very pleasantly soporific as long as it doesn't get in there with you. It was the thunder that the 7 yr old didn't much like! They stayed out there for the night, though.

Courage is to overcome your fears not to fear nothing, well done 7 yo. Happy camping.
