Musing here. Fairport Convention August in Oxford.
Camping with dame and dog. Would like at least to do it in some comfort and, well comfort.
It must be possible. Chairs that don't cut off the circulation after 20 minutes ( see earlier post on campaign chairs in militaria). And stuff that should not be gone without.
Already got bottle opener, shemagh, baby wipes, maglite and bacon grill. Barbour and hat too.
Thank you.

Buy some plastic stacking storage boxes or those fold away plastic crate things - decent sized. Use one for food. One for "household goods" (kitchen utensils, lamps batteries, loo paper etc). Take lots of black plastic bags. Use one as a gash bag (tied to something outside the tent). Use one as a laundry bag. Keep your tent discipline - pack kit away during the day, don't allow shoes in the tent at all, keep things tidy. Make sure you keep things clean, do your washing up after each meal etc.

It's just field discipline, but transferred to a civvy situation.

Explain the rules carefully to anyone you are camping with and ensure they stick to said rules.

Thank you schweik. That's the way I was taught, simple and separate. What I was looking for was stuff that works, pieces of kit which have improved the camping experience. I'm too old to survive roughing it.
