Because we have a family adventure to have before we get there, I need to pack now – two whole weeks before Greenbelt starts!
I’m waiting with bated breath for the Daily Diary to be published on Friday just before I leave ‘internet-land’. My tent, mattress, sleeping bag and stove are organised already, courtesy of Tangerine Fields!
But I’m a first timer; a Greenbelt ‘virgin’ if you will.
What do I need, for me to get the best from Greenbelt? This could be things I need to take, or things I should try and do. So far I’ve been told the following:
- If you need time out from the crowds try the “silent” pemanent chill-out space
- Something to sit on as a lot of the talks are in tents and the grandstand has hard seats – I’ve got a tiny 3 legged stool on a shoulder strap that should do the trick, and a squishy cushion thing we use for the cricket. Hopefully that will do.
I’m also planning to take:
- A notebook and a pen – I’m guessing there will be interesting people, things, ideas etc that I will want to note down;
- My trusty Android phone (and charger) so I can contact all my lovely Twurch of England and other friends and work out where we can meet up – especially important since I don’t know what most of them look like!
But the question is, what else do I need to take?
I’ve posted some of my initial plans here, but what else do I need to plan to do whilst I’m there that will make Greenbelt special?
If you’re a Greenbelt-pro, please post a comment here or Tweet me. I’d love your suggestions as to what else I should take with me, or what it is that I should plan to do whilst I’m there!
And perhaps we could pray it doesn’t rain?
