I'll be there in 18 days. But my wife is getting worried about the night temperature. She wants electric blanket but I think a few hot water bottles will work better when the power is shut down at night.

And I'm worried about electric blanket on self inflating mattresses.

Sounds like the ideal opportunity for a good cuddle and to sleep much closer together :D :thumbs_up:
Isn't it just amazing how potatoes give us fries and vodka? :D The rest of the vegetables should get their act together :rtm:
