Despite having had plenty of practice over the years, I still like to be well prepared before setting off for a festival. For a few days before departure, my map library – yes, I have a room so designated – serves as a loading bay and is filled up in readiness with all the necessaries. No last minute packing for me, and anyway, it heightens the anticipation. Yet I still worry that I’ve missed an essential. Here’s the list so far.
Airbed / inflater
Sleeping bag / pillows
Spongebag / Drugs inc inhalers and antihistamines
Table / Chairs / Gazebo / Windbreaks / Mallet
TICKET !!!!! never forgotten it yet, but I live in fear
Lyrics for singarounds
x Shirts, where x = y+3z ; y being the number of days ; z being the number of ceilidhs
Kecks – long and short
Wellies / dancing shoes / boots
Mug / teabags
Flagpoles / flags
Help me out. Have I missed anything?
