I havent been on here for 2 years now, what with life stuff. But is it fantastic to see it still going strong! :)
SO......advise please?!? Me and the wife are LOVING the line up announcement. So wanna go. HOWEVER.....we now have a child. She will be just over a year old when Green Man comes along. So, whilst we wanna go, we are apprehensive. ITs not really even about going to festivals with a 1 year old per se. We are going to Latitude this year (as long as the line up isnt COMPLETELY terrible!), which will be her first.
The issue is really the weather at Green Man. Every year we have been, it has been at times a slog. The mud is a chore crap at the best of times, let alone with a buggy!
SO......those of you who have gone with a wee bairn.....how is it? Is it a nightmare? OR is it easier than i think it will be? We have a bugaboo buggy, and have bought 'off road' wheels for festivals. But, as i say, this is mostly for Latitude and maybe other festivals where the weather isnt so inclement. AND where, if we get unlucky with inclement weather at the 'tude, the site can, on the whole, cope well. WHo knows, maybe since 2014 (ah....Nick Helm. Bellowing out 'NO SURVIVORS'! At 2 am on Monday morning. Best Green Man moment ever!) there has been loads of improvements and the ground get less quagmire-y.
I would also point out that we are not adverse to the rainy conditions. We are just wondering if it is feasible to take our daughter to Green Man and, if so, how much of a hassle it will be. If it is undesirable, we will consider letting grandma look after our wee bairn for a few days....
My. What a long post. apologies......Any advice etc would be appreciated. Thanks dudes.
