Welcome once more to #TTOT! The Twitter travel community’s excuse for a good old fashioned hashtag hoe down! Once a week we get together to discuss all and sundry on a particular subject and share our stories – good and bad – with other worldly wanderers. This week, the outdoorsy among us took to talking about Camping Trips and boy was it in-tents!
The questions on this week’s Travel Talk On Twitter were:
Q1: Advice for non-campers to get the most out of camping
Q2: What is your funniest/disastrous camping story?
Q3: Ever woken up with something in your tent that shouldn’t have been there?
Q4: What is the one extravagance that you must have on camping trips?
Q5: What’s your favourite camp-side food?
The obligatory ‘Brokeback Mountain’ Award for male bonding.
@rexyedventures: when my mate thought I was his girlfriend in his sleep and proceeded to try and give me a ‘special hug’ in the dales.
The ‘Charlie Sheen’ Award for sobriety.
@the_HoliDaze: Definitely beer and whiskey! Drinking games are not that fun with water, I’ve tried.
The ‘Urban Dictionary’ Award for unintended slang.
@GapDaemon: As long as you’re beating off the cobras that’s fine with me!
The ‘Scwarzenegger’ Award for going Commando.
@TysonJopson: Ask yourself ‘Will I die without this item?’ If the answer is no, leave it behind. I now camp without underwear.
The ‘Barbara Windsor’ Award for sauciness.
@Lozula: I woke up next to a naked lesbian once. Wait a second.. is this a different chat?
The ‘Them!’ Award for entomology.
@Destinology: Flysheet fully zipped, check, tent is sealed, check, nobody’s been out in the night, check. How did this massive ugly bug get in?
The ‘Mary Poppins’ Award for top notch child care.
@mariekreft: I once made a boy from school cry on a Snowdon trip by pretending to be a wolf howling outside his tent. Oops.
The ‘David Attenborough’ Award for loving nature in all its forms.
@SafariPeter: For ages I resented every solifuge that came into my tent. Then a leopard walked in. Arachnids were forgiven.
The ‘Jackanory’ Award for family-friendly story time.
@MzansiGirl: Lets just say that it involved eye-brow shaving, swimming with the tiger-sharks and the worst hangover of my life.
The ‘Edward Nigma’ Award for riddling me this.
@hjortur: Keep on trying. Argue with it. Eat it. Kiss it. Go all the way… They’ve got something for everything
And finally, two tweets that probably shouldn’t have appeared together on the timeline…
@kirstyabrown: In France, being woken up when a squirrel fell on my tent!
@MalloryOnTravel: Yeha – just heard the low bang as it exploded and then hysterical laughing.
Carry On Camping!
