There and back again and there and back again Pt 1. @ 10:28

Picture if you will a pub in Liverpool about 4 weeks ago.


**wibbly visual effect used to signify reflection on past events**


 



Stegzy:- You’re on holiday next month. I’m on holiday next month…let’s go camping!


Nick:- Yes that sounds like fun.


Stegzy:- Look I’ve put it in my shiny new HTC FLYER on the CALENDAR. AUGUST. 20th


Nick:- Ace! Can’t wait.


**Cue calendar flipping sequence signifying moving forward through time**


So I’m set. Set for a walking and camping trip to North Wales. At the end of August.



Blissful….



However……


 


**Calendar flipping sequence ceases 24th July**



Stegzy:- Bloody hell. Nick’s a bit keen. He’s been texting me all week asking about what we will be doing during our holiday in August.


Zoefruitcake:- Maybe he is excited.


Stegzy:- Hmm…this text is worrying. It seems to hint that there may be an issue with the month…..



Oh cocking hell!


So I called him. Was he winding me up? No. He wasn’t. While talking I made up a list of items to chuck into the car for an impromptu camping trip. Problem was…I didn’t have a tent anymore. Well I did. Just it was in Yorkshire. With the wife. Fortunately everything else, the table, the chair, the stoves, pans and ancillary camping equipment were safely in a pre-packed crate in Zoe’s Craft Hut. The tent….that was in Yorkshire.


As you can see from the screenshots, this was about half past six on the Sunday evening. A call to Clair received the thumbs up for a tent collection while Nick booked the camp site and prepared for a late night visit from me.


I sped up the M69 and M1 to Yorkshire and collected the tent then after a quick bite to eat and a catch-up, I sped along the M62 to Crosby near Liverpool arriving at an ungodly hour of 1am.

LJ is dicking about slightly less these days which is a good improvement.

Despite the hurried change of date, was the camping trip good and worth it?
