    Got my new tent today. JCR Contact 2 man Bivvy (£145). Great Carp folding chair/bed, really comfy. (£79). 2 burner and grill cooker (£34) Two mountain Sleeping Bags 4 seasons (£59 ea), plus Heater (£20) and other bits and pieces. Getting some pans of Bigzitt, so hopefully all now sorted for the February Bushbash. This camping lark is almost as expensive as shooting. But what a great way to spend your money. On Friday bought a Gobi 4 tent which looked really good, but when I got it home I couldn't believe the size. Like a bleeding hotel. Anyway rang "Go Outdoors" this morning and they were very helpful. Took my tent back and the manager spent nearly an hour with me discussing camping equipment and which was the most suitable gear for my shooting persuits. Can only compliment the staff at "Go Outdoors. Geoff:hp-beer:

    Yes brilliant, but missus went mad at "Go Outdoors" and said I'd need more than two burners plus a grill, so she got me this adapter which will feed my cooker and your cooker together and my gas fridge all at the same time. So I can have plenty of hot food and plenty of cold beers. I'm hoping to build a wooden stand which I can fit both cookers into. It'll be like an Arger by the time I'm finished. I do like my home comforts. And there's still room in the tent for two. Geoff. :hp-beer::hp-beer:.

    they do suggest not to bother with the bed chairs' but if it's not a thermal mattress on there i would get a little one on the safe side,,, you will sleep better then most at the bushy mate as thats what the chairs are made for... you can buy the chairs with built in sleeping bags some of them have temperature range down to comfort -10c , extrme -20c
