and make a nuclear snakebite
how i imagine drinking shredded wood does.
a hammer? for tent pegs!
the ground is going to be so hard?
given how wet the ground will be
I was happy that I managed to find some wellies. and borrow a sleeping mat.
I have failed to take in to account many things, including finalising arrangements for a space in a tent...and having a waterproof bag.
BRING ON TRUCK!
is that tom_from_sparks isn't getting there until 3 or 4pm with his massive tent. so we might end up getting soaked waiting for him and trying to stake out a place. plus we dont know how big the tent is so dont know how big a space we'll need. argh.
til he arrives? TFS's tent is about twice the size of Bamos', as I remember.
or at least if i could stick my bag in there. thankee.
so are there any wellies to be found in central-ish london?
but then they are mainly girly ones....and they're all about £20.
amazing thunderstorm right now in Bromley. Love it.
I don't even live in London so I'm assuming I'm screwed.
3/4 sizes too big for me!
not 3/4s of a size.
on Charing Cross Road. I got mine there yesterday.
I need wellies. Nowhere in Borehamwood will have them. Fuck.
homebase or B&Q at cricklewood.
I shall get some tomorrow morning! Hows that for leaving it late!
my goretex waterproof trousers are waiting in the shop for me, hurrah!
how can you not have wellies?
but they are located at the other end of the country, where they are normally needed, unlike the city.
all my camping and waterproof stuff is in kent.... the concrete streets of london don't usually call for walking boots etc.
i'm quite excited about being all waterproofed up when i track down some wellies
I was 4. They are postman pat ones. I doubt they will fit anymore.
I think I can locate a couple of places, so I'm going to have to make an urgent recce after work. I may have to succumb to the allure of the big coat.
got some reserved at the wimbledon millets for me to pick up tomorrow morning :D
where can I get waders?
ipod, cos there ain't gonna be no music...
