I live in constant preparation mode from one trip to the next, have my bag constantly packed.

I`m always looking at maps,i`ve got my april holiday booked but you never know there maybe a hidden place on the map,also when you really have the urge to go to the camping shop but there is nothing you can think of you need and you haven`t got any money but you just gotta go anyway.

Glad I'm not the only one. Thought I might have been a bit crazy



And I've always got at least half of my camping gear in the boot. Makes packing quicker :?#

Yes - this is definitely me atm..... I picked up the CT yesterday, put it in the garage, and I'm trying hard not to spend large periods of time in there admiring it!

Oh yeah - and I just made plans to go to the GC Camping show in a fortnight, even though I can't afford to buy a darn thing.....

I do something similar, I vacuum seal meat, meals etc and put them into the freezer ready for the next camping trip.

We are definitely all hooked, that is for sure and I might say in some 'great company' too.
