    a little thread to talk about camping at Inters for the people thats camping.

    Whos taking what, where we meeting and erm....what we drinking. lol


    I got a 74 quarts chest cool box that i'm taking.
    I should be getting two boxes of ginsters pasties, rolls and what ever else is in the boxes.

    As for BBQ items. I've not really thought about it.
    I'll take some of them little disposables BBQs, not sure what else.

    I'm brining a rickety old wooden stand thing that we can use as a disposable BBQ stand which I'm sure someone else said they would bring.

    I think we should all bring whatever meat we want to eat on the BBQ.

    Is it worth the Friday lot all meeting at a supermarket so we could all buy together?

    How rickety is it?

    I like the idea of going shopping together, good place to meet up as well and make sure we all camp together.
    Is there any shops near inters?

    Sounds like a plan guys but just want to know generally hiw secure is the campsite?

    Is it like a music festival :( ?

    Basically would I be mad to bring a bivvy bed chair etc or leave anything of any value in the tent whilst at the clubstand or doing runs?

    Just not entirely sure what to expect lol ;)

    The camp site has security.
    If you don't have a camping wrist band you can't get in to the camp site.

    I'm taking a top box which should be relatively empty during the day, so I'm happy to store stuff in it while we are away from the camp site or when people are doing runs.

    Going by Google, the closest supermarket is in Lutterworth bout 10mins from the site.

    I'm happy to meet up here and for us all to get any food, drinks and such we need.
    It looks like its a Waitrose, not sure if that's an issue for any one.

    I fitted my roof bars to my car last night and cleaned my roof box and removed the stickers.

    My camping list is growing with more stuff I find that I could take or should take.
    Mainly car bits for Reesy, some random bits I could sell (Porsche caps and Cup holders), Some tools, cutlery and I can't find my light, which I'm a little bit annoyed about but I got time, so I should find.

    Got to stop off at Tesco and pick up some food, buns and Drink.
    That's assuming we are all just bringing a random selection of munch and all share it?

    I don't think I'm going to have time to pop to Ginsters and my mates are not working there this week, so that's really annoying. :(

    Got to so much to do and almost no time to do any of the shopping.

    :(

    Scott - are you actually bringing anything to eat?

    I got some left over haribo in the car from last weekend.
















    I got tesco's delivering 24 beef quarter pounders, 20 BBQ flavour chicken wings, 28 cumberland sausages, 60 cheese slices, 36 rolls and 24 hot dog rolls.
    That should be enough I think.


    Any one bringing any form of big shelter or sorts to shelter us from the rain?
    I've thought about mine but It wont fit in the car.

    Yes Scott got the laptop too, Iv also been checking the weather it seems to change on an hourly basis I dont think it knows what its doing. I bought some eggs tonight just need the sausages and bacon which il pick up tomorrow afternoon. I have left my freezer blocks in the freezer at work so will give me a bit extra time before they melt.

    Scott you'll spend all weekend at the piss block!!!! and yeah but we'r for scalextric lol. I forgot to check tha wattage. My inverter is 400w off battery I think. It's in the car anyway so I bring that just in case.

    I have I 6mx4m waterproof sheet we could lash up between tents to give us a good amount of shelter. we could all get under that. Might look like a bunch of pikeys like but wtf we'd be dry as a bone ;).

    lol are you serious???

    damo, bring the sheet, a make shift drinking shelter may be needed. most tents come with spare poles for a porch so we could use them too.
