Hi <Name Removed>,
Thanks for the feedback, appreciated.
I’ve added this into the list of things to put in the “How to prepare for events” section when I build it. Some good suggestions in there, excellent stuff!
All the best,

Spending 3 hours trudging through pouring rain to leave, while the trolley sits unused beside a nobles tent leaves a very sour taste at the end of a good festival.
> Also that you need to pack your car so your things are accessible, as you will NOT be allowed in the gate wearing mundanes, even to change in the loos 20m away. Your own gear is much better than the loaners. Idea – could we have a changing tent outside the gate?????? Please??? Just some canvas and a couple of stakes???? Not everyone wants to stop in public places wearing hosen or even a tunic.
> If you are self sufficient for all food and bedding, or have prearranged all your needs, before the event, you will be much happier than assuming something will be there and finding it is not. Things happen and other peoples plans change at the last minute – maybe after you’ve left home.
