People who go camping need their head looking at tbf.

How does that make any sense? "Yeah, I think I'll sleep outside. And buy equipment that even if I did this 10 times over, wouldn't pay for itself".

Not a chance, I have no idea how it's even a thing. Humans live indoors for a good reason.

I'm looking at Wales as they could open hairdressers/barbers in a few weeks. A short hop over the border.

Done camping once. On the Norway trip. Loved it in Tromso, hated it in Oslo (and a fooking squirrel stole my watermelon)

:ROFLMAO: this requires additional information. Was he armed or summat?

I think the squirrel has been framed - a watermelon - what was he eating, steroid-infused nuts?

I'm sure I've told you, I'm learning Welsh just to prove I can learn it quicker than she can learn German, despite having her own bespoke personal tutor.

It gets me through the day.

It's not a complex story.

Watermelon...cut up into 6 large slices. Wrapped and in a cool box. Got back to the tent to see the Squirrel sitting next to cool bag finishing off the final slice. He then ran off and I went into City and got a pizza instead. Moral of the story..don't try to eat healthy food, unless you are a Norwegian Rat with a bushy tail.

Probably told this on here before, but I once bought a pint in the airport in Oslo forgetting their alcohol prices. Equated to nearly £35. Managed to get it on expenses as the receipt was in Norwegian 👍🏼

Had a mental image of an armed squirrel holding you up with an automatic weapon, and then meandering off with the watermelon under his arm leaving you forlorn... :ROFLMAO:

Me, my Dad and his mate visited my brother who lives in Norway, went to the pub and I said I'll get a round in.

3 pints and a 330ml bottle of craft beer - £43.

And it's not just bars where you get ripped off on booze - I went to the local 7/11 type store and bought a six-pack of Heineken bottles.
That was £19!!!

It all equates more or less with income over there tbf. It's just I don't earn £200k a year.

The incomes are very good but they pay a shit lot out in tax. The reason they do it without fuss is taxes are invested back in to the public. Some of the roads and bridges over there are unbelievable. And they are constantly drilling tunnels through mountains in order to save you a 10 min drive around the side of it.
Healthcare is free, education system is top notch, the cities are spotlessly clean, transport infrastructure and service is excellent.
The standard of living is so good because they invest the tax back into the country.

get a tent, and if the weather is as good as last year, you might be able to sooner PLF.
And if you can in 4 weeks, the hair might suit the character of the old man in a tent in the garden... ;)
Done a number of camping trips when younger including 1 to Somerset when it was so wet even my Dad had to conceed & come home - think we were in 6 inches of mud inside the tent & the trip to the Isle of Skye a few years earlier is seared in my brain 😫

Most memorable one was aged 21 in N Africa as the tent consisted of 2 bits of clear plastic (one on the ground & the other at an angle up to the top of the hire car) - 4 blokes in sleeping bags under that 🙂

The French residents at the campsite with their 3 bed frame tents may have thought that we were a bit odd (which we probably were).
