    Default Glastonbury - la la la

    Driving down later. Two nights in travelodge (got daughter 4 with is for two days), drive home Friday, back Saturday then two nights roughing in.

    Traffic doesn't look too bad as does weather. I swore if it was muddy this year I was retiring!

    Fortunate to have access to disabled facilities this year too. Wife has long term health issues anyway but had a knee op last Friday too. To be honest, without this extra help she'd never make it. Also, if its muddy shes got no chance!

    But, no refunds and she was dead keen to go. Family think shes mad and shes going to be knackered but I guess you can sleep when your dead.

    Hats off to people in wheelchairs who do it mind (she'll just be on crutches but can walk unaided a little) it must be tough. Admiration for the poor buggers.

    I aint pushing her around in a wheelchair though. My shoulder/neck is dodgy so that aint gonna happen!

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    I hope your Mrs gets better / does not deteriorate.

    Going out & about with a wheelchair is indeed a royal PITA

    Growing up is optional

    So you're in the Travel Lodge tonight & tomorrow night and driving to the site each day?

    Where's the nearest Travelogue to the site? Shepton?

    Is there anything actually going on weds - Friday? I know the music doesn't start untie Friday night...

    Awesome - sorry that your Mrs is suffering, but glad to hear she's at least giving it a shot! Can't wait for my son to be old enough for a gig/festival

    Well her long term thing is chronic/lifelong but her knee op should help. Improving since Friday at least.

    It'd be too difficult in glasto with wheelchair methings. LASt year I towed youngest in garden cart through the mud - neatry effing killed me. No chance this year if its muddy - the bugger can walk. Shes 4 now so one year heavier too!

    Probably going to drop cart off at one of the propery points and use it if we need to. Luckily, disabled car park in much closer. Last time it was west campervan which is miles - took us probably 90 mins to tow back up hill in mud.

    One of two friends in a wheelchair makes a full time hobby of going out and about being a full-time nuisance especially trying to gain access in to shops and checkout that have too smaller isles.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    No refund so might as well.

    Glasto is good for kids - daughter is 4. Son is 13 - not going this year. Its free if you're UNDER 13 and he wasnt fussed about going. Saying that its a bit hectic on sat/sun which is why we do the kid drop after friday night.
