Searches will be alot stricter on the gates this year as they are specifically hunting for gas canisters.
There arnt ever really any searches at the train station as it's right in the centre of Reading and just too damn busy.
my tickets came yesterday, yayyy!
Nothing for me today. Can't wait for the festival, haven't even been to a gig before. Ibiza on the 19th, land in England 00:30 Thursday, and gonna arrive at reading at 9/10am.
... if we can't use gas canisters, petrol cookers or burners, our options are pretty limited because those are the most obvious and cheapest ways of cooking on a campsite. Barbecues are impractical and messy, solid fuel stoves are too small to cater for large groups, Trangia stoves are ridiculously pricey and the 'Greenheat Base Camp Cookers' don't seem to be very easy to get hold of. If I didn't know better I'd say it was a conspiracy to get us to buy their food.
Sunday night is always going to be one of the jauntier nights you'll spend in a field but it's something to talk about on the train.
My clothes stank of smoke for weeks, the stuff I was wearing that night/day.
