Apparently they don't send conforimation out. So that'll explain why I can't find the slip.what it doesn't explain, however, is why I have a very clear memory of them mispelling my name.

Ah well, all's well that ends well (assuming this will end well).

Jane and I are camping again, but this year in a 26 year old campervan that we own two thirds of. If the van makes it that is, we've had the recovery people out 6 times in the first year!

We will of course be massively undercutting any veggie breakfast on site - thanks to the on board kitchen, including all the toast that the £4 tesco value toaster can generate. In fact, anybody who comes up and says 'Too popular last year' , gets a free slice of toast*

Having experienced the steady decline at the cafe at the site for the last 3 years, going it alone was the only way.

there's been a decline in the breakfasts? blimey, that first year I ate one of the wettest breakfasts ever... they might as well have served it with a straw

Pretty much my experience. The breakfast first year was pretty vile ... they've got worse? We just cook our own. This year I might try the Cafe at the Railway Centre. Michael was heartily recommending it, but he's told everyone by now, so there will probably be big queues.

I'm sure we got one. And while I was reading your earlier posts I was thinking I don't know where it is and getting equally panicky. I have a definate memory of receiving it. Maybe we've both had false memories implanted?

I think they just make it up as they go along. I'll have to ask Josie if she got it. The advantage of them making it up as they go along is that so can you and they'd be none the wiser. I'd just claim I hadn't whether I had or not I think.

I think maybe they don't send confirmation per se, but they do send you the debit card receipt. And as I would imagine everyone pays by card, they do in fact send out confirmation. If that makes sense?

They didn't ask me for a deposit at all, which is getting me worried now...

I shouldn't worry, Dan. Like Tony said, they make it up as they go along.

I'm camping. Looking forward to it hugely. Gonna have some big sleeps the week leading up hopefully so I don't flake as I'm all too frequently inclined too these days.

Hello all. My first post!
I'm a first-timer at Indietracks and I'm not much of a camper so I'm staying at a pub in Eastwood.
It just means I'll only gave a couple of beers during the day so I can drive back there at night!

Booked my camping today. I think. I'm really not sure and reading words about it scares me.

What I assume will happen is I will show up and if they don't have me down on the list then I will guilt one (or all) of my many friends )that's you) into letting me sleep in their tent, eat their food, share their sleeping bag and kiss their girlfriend. After all, I am a good person and you are pleased to have met me.

I take it there're still spaces at the campsite? It's not fully booked is it?
