Hi Everyone, Thanks for the all the handy hints. I forgot to mention in my first post that I am a pretty experienced camper but only in short stints. We only ever go for 2 nights at the most. The trip to Baffle creek at xmas was the longest trip we have done. And, we always stay in the one spot.
We are pretty organised with all of our camping gear except for the room issue. I think everyone has a space issue to a certain extent unless you are towing a trailer or something similar. I would love more room (and a 30 second tent) but I have come the conclusion that neither is going to happen on small budgets and with children. :-)
I really hand it you you PJ for getting all the stuff in to a little car. Pretty amazing!! And I also agree with the comment of 5 stars versus 5 billion! How true.
We are heading up to Somerset at Easter (if the weather is good). Does anyone know if it gets really busy up there?
Thanks again for the handy hints. I will definitely being checking back in regularly for more helpful info.
