I went camping, in Cornwall, after a 25 year gap! This was not because I hated it (the camping, not Cornwall), in fact quite the opposite, so, when invited on a camping weekend with a fun, but very urban, group of friends, I found myself digging out the tent that was once my home in France when I was a campsite courier in my gap year (many moons ago). A massive canvas frame tent emerged from the attic...... in remarkably good condition for its age! The 2 men in my house (partner and 8 year old) were on the opposite ends of the enthusiasm scale for this adventure. The older one reluctantly went along with the tidal wave of excitement generated by the younger practicing setting up camp in the sitting room. I realized that to get the older one on side I would have to make it as 'house' like as possible and play down the possibility of leaks......
It was the one of the funniest weekends I've ever had... but the sleeping conditions...
