The Tent, The Bucket, and Me!
« on: March 03, 2012, 10:16:20 PM »
Has anyone else read this book?

It's one of the funniest things I've read in a long time, more so because it's true. Based on one woman's experiences of camping as a child.

I'd recommend it to anyone who loves camping, or even who just loves laughing at people's humorous misfortunes! Ironically, the worse things got for her the more it made me want to go camping!

I've heard this recommended before, I really will have to get a copy. I'm sure it'll just make me yearn for the camping season even more too, I'm desperate at the moment.

Actually, I think it was Oldhogs who recommended it....and she's now definitely in the Never Again club. Childhood camping and the scouts and guides have a lot to answer for....

Nooo, don't let it put you off. That was set in the 70's and most of their 'incidents' were their own doing one way or another.

Are you not even a tiny bit curious when you hear what a great time we have at the camping trips?
