Campus Martius

We have a very intense episode for you this week… Or rather we should say in-tents, because this week we are fixing the guy ropes and battening down the hatches as we Carry On with Camping!

Whether you’re a camping champion, prefer glamping with champagne or love to cook yourself a mushroom omelette over your fire pit, we’ve got all you outdoorsy-types covered.

Elsewhere Susie explains why you might find mosquitoes in your canapés and Gyles fills his noggin with knowledge of various noggins.

We also check in with your Purple Post suggestions of what one might call a “livretarian”, a “freeder”, one who partakes in “Partonage” or a “bibliosocialite”.

If you’d like to get in touch with Gyles and Susie then please do! At

Susie’s Trio:

Gowl - to weep in anger or frustration
Glad-warble - to sing joyfully
Snirtle - to try to suppress your laughter (often without success)
