Here it is, the Bug Jam 23 mini-blog. Lacking in car photos as each time I decided to leave the camp it would hammer it down. I have wellies and a hat but others are less enthusiastic about swimming…

Thursday:
12.10pm I leave work. Late as usual.
1.30pm I can't find my cool bag.
2.00pm I leave home half an hour late
3.15pm I arrive at South Mimms services on the M25 to meet Schnicks
Approximately 4pm a large red coach attempts to run me off of the road on the slip road bridge bit of the M1.
We soldier on and head up to the overflow field and arrived at 5pm.
5.15pm we stop jumping up and down screaming "We're here!!"
Schmoo, Ballbag, Bin Jammin and Tim arrive and park up.

We BBQ in the rain, have emergency erection of the gayzebo and meet many MANY random people

11.15pm we dismantle gayzebo and cause mass confusion.

12.00am early night for me and schnicks as we know someone is going to get us up at stupid o'clock to sit in a queue of vehicles trying to get out of one entrance.

Friday:
8.09am Empi Power is banging on the window of the van to wake us up as they are leaving. Tut. Pisht. Grumble.
8.20am Schnicks forces me to go to my car and join the throngs of queuers.




 
9.24am I drive past the photographer on the way up the santa pod main road

11.30am we've had a cup of tea, put up my tent, the awning and my gayzebo like a pair of doozers, having sat out a couple of badly timed showers.

Had a bit of a potter around. Got a bit wet. Didn't buy any shoes but it was close (hiding from the rain in a shoe stall is bad for your health).



 
Schnicks did dinner of frankfurter and supernoodle stir fry. Had some margueritas. Went partying!

Saw The Fillers on the live stage, then split up and I went east to the retro zone for some ska punk stuff with jay and the others went west to the dance tent.







Anyone recognise this bloke peeing up against the pillar inside the retro zone big top?



This bloke was having such a good time he developed Ska Narcolepsy and gone to sleep on the pillar. He woke up shortly after I snuck this photo.



A bit of Sonic Boom 6





1am exhausted and muddy we returned to the camp to find it in near darkness.

I rejoiced at the sight of Calamity Al and his possee who were still awake.





Things turned a bit weird around 4am and I decided it was time to leave…

Saturday arrived with sunshiney patches. I headed to the banks with Gingerbob, Emma123 and other such enthusiasts. Watched some RWYB and got podburnt.

So there we have it. Rain, mud, sunshine, music, booze, cars, more cars, shiny cars, dirty cars and MATES!

It was random. Very random. Didn't see lots of things that I wanted to, but that is the story of my life!

I can't remember that stereo whatsoever :lol:

Then I woke up at 8.30 Sunday morning :lol:
