SGL 8 - General Questions?


Recommended Posts

Make sure that you the van hire small print, our local hirer likes to charge £900 for even a scratch.

The best car that I ever had was a diesel Vauxhall Combo van, just sheer heaven to load up.

Now it takes an hour to load up !

That wasn't actually a hog. It was a motorist who drove into the camp one night with his headlights full on. Rather tasty though

My top tip for SGL8 camping comfort is to stop drinking beer at least 2 hours before you plan to turn in for the night. Waking up in Arctic conditions at 5am with a full bladder and the prospect of h

As others have already linked to the SGL7 threads with images, you can see how the site is laid out. SGL8 will be my 3rd SGL party and looking forward to meeting up with fellow members old and new.

I am not trying to tempt fate, but what are people planing to do if the weather is bad?

Day visits to Hereford, Ross-on-Wye????

For the last two years I have brought along a pile of DVDs but luckily have not had to use them.

Well, one crumb of comfort is that the mess office are predicting (guessing?) that there might be more cold weather during March. Fingers crossed ey!

UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Feb 2013 to Saturday 9 Mar 2013:

cold nights and clear days would be good like SGL7. If it's raining we could shoot darks all week ! or play with some timelapse or macro or HDR or a Dynamic Perception Stage zero camera platform or panoramics of the inside of the tent :)

Cider trail anyone?

I would like to join that. Beware though - being brought up in Bristol I know from experience that scrumpy cider effects your knees, making tasks such as standing up and walking almost impossible!!!! :smiley:

I've been to 4 SGL star parties and each time I recall the advance forecasts being rather doubtful at best. At the actual events however I had some of the best viewing I've ever had so I'm not overly pessimistic :smiley:

we can't do a thing about the weather, except emigrate, so why worry about it :)
