The Great Indoors

The Great IndoorsImage by joedawson via Flickr
Stage one, preparation. For this you will need one room which you will not leave. Soothing music. Popcorn, one bowl of. Fajitas, several wraps of, for consumption hot and spicy. Beans, toast, several servings of. Vodka, J├Ągermeister, Champagne. Mineral water, Lemonade, photography. One mattress. One small-sized tent. One television and several videos. And now we're ready. Elaborate build-up but then I feel that camping in the front room is probably an extreme scenario. Also we watched Trainspotting and if you're familiar with the memorable quotes then you will notice how I have adapted the original text to be relevant. I admit at first I wasn't expecting the 'Great Indoors' to be inspirational but it provided real entertainment. After the first night we realised that sleeping on the floor seriously damages the posture so we introduced the mattress which was much better. If we do manage to experience a festival this summer I need to remember to bring an equivalent because otherwise we may become permanently damaged! Indoor camping is definitely the way forward but remember no candles...
