I have to be in Edinburgh tomorrow for Jeremy. Because of a project I am heading up for Octagon Technology, the original plan was to break the journey this evening in a hotel. However I managed to complete all my tasks by lunchtime, which meant it was a good excuse to get away from Lincoln early and spend a night at one of my favourite campsites.
Dinner was an upmarket, Japanese “pot noodle”, which was very good, tea and M&S, Lemon and Lime Jaffa Cakes.

Lauder Campsite at 5am
Lauder Campsite – April snow
I woke during the night to hear the patter of snow on my tent, but as I was warm in my goose down sleeping bag, I went back to sleep.
I woke up again at about 5am, made some coffee and shot this view from my tent, from inside my sleeping bag.
I am off to Scotland tomorrow, camping. As I am dropping Jeremy off at Herriot Watt University, on the way, I need some extra luggage room for the MX-5. So my tent, food, sleeping gear and a few other bits of gear are going into the 50l Boot Bag.
