    I think this has been brought up before but who would be up for a tMP social with a difference? I was thinking something like booking into a camp site (one with proper showers though!!) for a weekend and having a big BBQ on the Sat night. If we can get enough interest then I will suggest some dates for later in the summer :biggrin: I think numbers of 15-20 people would be ideal and it would be a great laugh :cool::tup Post in this thread if you think you may be up for it (date depending of course). Just to clarify any under 18's would need to bring an adult to accompany them.

    Camping with the Band is great fun - we've done it three times now and each time was absolutely brilliant - and we had proper showers

    Good luck :biggrin:

    Great idea, but NW/Yorks is too far for me I'm afraid.

    But where would I plug in my hairdryer and straighners? How would I get my four poster bed inside a tent? :eek:

    Yeah, but think of the look on Tim's face when the suitcase comes out again!!! :biggrin: It must be worth it just for that.?

    Camping is great fun! :D I would possibly be interested in coming but depending on where it is (and what weekend). Do you have a location in mind?

    Lisa, I haven't thought of an exact location yet. Has anyone got any ideas? There are loads of nice spots in yorks or NW.

    I'm guessing it's gonna be in a field somewhere.

    Elin you need to work on convincing your sister! Don't worry we will definately be getting somewhere with proper shower block and electrics - I too cannot live with my hair straightners!

    Hair straighteners?!?!? :-? That's not camping!!!! :eek:

    Running down half dressed to the freezing cold river in the morning to have the quickest ice cold wash/shampoo/wee ever and then getting back to your tent to discover a sheep eating what you had sizzling in the pan for breakfast is camping!!

    Said sheep is on the barbie by lunch time, NOW THAT'S PROPER CAMPING. :tup :tongue:
