What to bring

Below is a list I've started to get together.. feel free to contribute!

Buy any electronic gadgets required from www.MemoryCardZoo.com 

Wellies at Lidl for 4.88!! 

In terms of tents, I recommend a 2000HH tent (how waterproof it is) and to oversize slightly - 2-3 man for 1 person, 4 man for 2 people etc.

I went to Millets and said 'I want to buy a tent.'
He said 'To camp?'
I said (butchly) 'Sorry, I want to buy a tent.'
I said 'I also want to buy a caravan.'
He said 'Camper?'
I said (campily) 'Make your mind up.'
