I hope it is bigger, me and my mate are sharing a 4 man between the 2 of us.

Going shopping for food etc tomorrow, and packing tomorrow morning before I go shopping. My mate wants to leave our city at 6am. She is insane.

I was going to start packing at 8, but since Radio Scotland isn't covering the Braga-Celtic match I'm watching it on my computer. I'll start packing later mabye.

Someone come help motivate me. There's stuff everywhere, but none of it is in my bag yet. Thankfully the tent is already with another mate. I'm seriously excited, but really cannot be bothered to pack! Kick up the rear for Vicki please, I leave at possibly 6am tomorrow, or 8.30, we're not sure yet...

Either way, I need to sort this lot out!

I just have a few things to pack before I leave but otherwise I'm done. It's amazing how quickly a rucksack fills up isn't it?

I've just discovered this. My rucksack is 45 litres and it's full, plus I have my wellies (just in case!), sleeping bag, and also a bag of healthy snacks because I've been losing a bit of weight and don't want it to totally be undone. Oh, and a smaller bag for the daytime that currently has a few bits in it. I need to cut it down I think because right now space is gonna be an issue in my mate's car. Approx 12 hours til I leave!!!!!!

Edit: healthy snacks are now in my day bag, so I only have 3 things really, as my wellies will be coming out of their carrier bag tomorrow and being shoved in the boot! It's gonna be a HUGE pain carrying all the food, bags, drink etc from car park to campsite! Fortunately we left the tents with mates who are there tonight!

Vicki, I feel your pain! I just finished packing and am thinking... what the hell am I gonna do with all this?! My main bag weighs a damn ton, took out mixer & water an put them in carrier bags but also gotta carry floor roll, sleeping bag and beer too! Got my rum in main bag :) Too much food & drink I think... is there such a thing?! Is it wrong to already be looking forward to coming home JUST so I don't have to carry all this crap again? hahaha

Get to tesco quickly they have them on offer and if you have club card points you can double them up on camping gear, so you'd get it half price.

I got 2 singles for £7.50 total in readiness for Nova Rock, cheapest I'd found was a £9.99 for one single from Blacks sale.

Home Bargains had a double airbed in for £10 which I wouldnt have known about if it wasnt for my girlfriend actually shopping there. Has a built in pump and its quite comfy. Does the job anyway.
