Arrived at the YHA site at Welsh Bicknor. The track down to the campsite is as narrow, steep and bumpy as ever. The bikes on the roof managed to drag some trees down with us!
Started unpacking our eBay tent for the first time. The instructions were laughable, with no diagrams to speak of and just a couple of rather unhelpful descriptions to go on. Fortunately it was all fairly straightforward to work out, but the tent was extremely large and quite challenging to get up with just one adult involved. At least the weather was really warm and there was little wind.
Overall it took about 90 minutes to get the tent erected and the car unpacked, so the boys went off ferreting in the woodland behind the campsite to firewood. We were finally ready to start cooking some dinner at about 8:00pm.
