Ha ha we will have come back from the honeymoon by then we are getting married in July!

She wants to be interested in astronomy, but in her words she "just wants to look at pretty things" :). I think that is how it will start but she has an inquisitive mind and will want to know names and then Hopefully it will snowball from there and I can get her a small refractor and then take it from there. Will have to wait and see.

Sort of, it is massive, but I know Celeste has one bigger, I have got the Outwell Hartford XL, sleeps 8 and you can stand up in the thing without touching the roof, we got a carpet, wardrobe, kitchen sink............

I have a large Hartwell 2 bed rooms ,central area and front and back porch(front porch can and has been used as telescope storage and obs) and a 4 berth Khymer Freelander if anybody needs a loan

or even wants to buy either of them(they will be going cheap)

We will never use them again as Helen cannot kneel because of her knee replacements and if I want a tent I'll use the small one

Think tent size should not be to much of a issue, please call the site tho ! Its a big field so as we are ems maybe we could form some sort of large tent circle ? Depends on numbers I suppose.

I'll be going sharing Buckingham Palace with Daz and Craig.

I have just realised that since I have Craig and Mick stopping in my tent, I am now going to be camping with the "boss's", so need to be on my best behaviour. No late night shenanigans Mr Morgan! ;)

:lol: That's awesome!

That's why I haven't yet committed to Kelling, I need to balance the Star Parties with spending "weekends away" with the other half. :D
