Latitude Festival prep
Our preparations for heading off to the Latitude Festival on Thursday continue. I’ve been out to buy some supplies specified by our daughter Hannah who is a veteran Festival goer.
The main items appear to be 500 ml bottles of water - this being the size that they allow into the Arena. There are also pot noodles of various ilk and lots of pre packed pains aux chocolat for breakfast (assuming that’s how you spell it). We also have lots of cans of lager and cider left over from a recent 19th birthday party so they will be coming with us.
Personally we like to do things in a little more style. We will be stocking the fridge with some decent beer and a bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne that we happen to have in the kitchen fridge.
There are seven of us going in total including our 4 mostly grown up kids and Joe’s girlfriend Charlotte. Tom, our eldest is coming up from London but the other four are heading off in the Micra whilst we go in our van Betty.
Betty will be laden down with stuff, including three tents, our awning, all the supplies, a guitar and a bbq. We are travelling in convoy with some other campervan owning friends so that we can all stick together in the campervan field when we get there.
We also have a flagpole with a variety of flags - Mexico, Isle of Man, Wales, Pirate and Uganda. The fave of the moment is Uganda. Suspect we might take the flagpole down when we aren’t around the van but we’ll see when we get there.
The best thing is that we will be able to play the Latitude playlist on the new bluetooth radio when we are headed down. Just to get in the mood:)
If you are looking to hire a VW campervan in Lincolnshire do get in touch.
