This thread could really do with a proper forum that can host pictures but just wondering what tents and other camping paraphernalia you folks have been stocking up on for the festival, or what favourite bits of kit you'd recommend to others.
Myself and daughter will be camping in relative luxury in the live-in field in a Dandy folding camper. I'm always surprised that there aren't more of these wonderful examples of British engineering at Green Man, but it was nice last year to have probably the only other one (and its lovely occupants) pitched right beside us.
Our main acquisition this year has been a pair of Maclaran Gadabout chairs. I first saw these at the festival four years ago and have been trying to get hold of some ever since. They are really lightweight folding chairs produced in the 60's by the guy who invented the Spitfire undercarriage and the first folding baby buggy. They go for silly prices on ebay but I was lucky to grab a pair that someone had just listed at £30 'buy it now'.
My other essential bit of Green Man kit is a small backpack constructed in the same way as a pop-up tent. Hard to describe but it's flexible frame, wide pop open top, and internal pockets, makes it just perfect for the diverse conditions we find ourselves in at GM.
So what's your special bit of kit ....?
