Well it was more like a tent for me, was sleeping in the awning thingy, nice double lilo all to meself!

Nowt wrong with caravans Rich, unless they're on the road.

I thought I'd found a good drybag system for the weekend. Thinking ahead, I decided to put all my clothes in a bin bag inside my rucksack, then seal the bag shut. Sadly it didn't work too well. Got home Sunday night, opened it up, and everything was soaked. So I think I might look into some of these drybag things too. My trainers are still wet...

Caravan is better than the Marina benches which is where 4 very tired looking NWRibsters looked like they were going to end up!

precisely

Of course, RIBs (and SIBs) on trailers are excempt from criticism from other road users

Hey, d'you want a plain drybag without rucksack straps? I've got one which will be replaced soon...

The other point I was making is go into your local canoe & kayak shop and have a mooch about, you'll find some interesting and useful stuff at reasonable prices.

I also brought a 'Yak' helmet to protect my bonce at about 30 squids.

- what, from Yaks?

I dunno. I'm sure that Berkshire is a Yak Free Zone. Not sure about Brum, though

Yes - good point about canoe shop. I'm off down to Marsport soon which is just down the road from me.
