The Secret Diary of a Camping Ninja: Diversity
09 April 2011 : Written by A Camping Ninja
With all the different tents you can see at campsites, there really is something for everyone. From trailer tents and camper vans, to caravans, little pop up tents and 8 man palaces, big tents, small tents, and of course ninja tents too, there are many different styles of camping homes to choose from. Now that's diversity. And I don't mean as in the dance troupe (they're cool and everything but I'm much more of a Peridot fan myself).
If it's true what they say about dogs looking like their owners, I wonder if the same applies to tents? (That's tents that look like their owners, not tents that look like dogs!)... Looking around our campsite, it does seem to be the case.
Proud owner of a tent that looks like you or not, as every camper knows, no matter how much you love your own tent, there's always another one at the campsite that catches your eye and admiration too.
In amongst a field of tents encompassing decades of style – 70s cool and simplicity, tents with a little bit of an 80s flavour, and tents from the early 90s that can't help but remind you of a pair of Bermuda shorts – this one here would be my favourite today (as per ninja cam photo).
To the tent of the day - a retro gem of a tent, and the tent to steal a ninja's heart away.
The Secret Diary of a Camping Ninja: Waiting For Strictly To Call
11 November 2010 : Written by A Camping Ninja
Sitting by the ninjabile waiting for Strictly Come Dancing to call, practising my shocked voice and surprised face in the mirror – not that they could see that on a phone call but just in case they can sense it...
Hello, Camping Ninja here....... Who, me?............. You saw the video of us dancing on Campingninja and you'd like me to be on the next series of Strictly?.... Oh no, I couldn't possibly...... Oh, alright then, if you insist..... OK, I'll do it..................... Really? You were completely amazed by my hand dancing skills and you loved the way my hips moved?..... You think I have a natural rhythm and totally funky moves?........ Would I dance for the vibe? Well yes, of course........... Yes, yes, I can do the moonwalk and the running man...
If only. Come on ninjabile, ring.
I guess it is a bit soon for them to call tonight. It has only been a week. Ann Widdicombe waited a lot longer than that to get her call. Maybe next week they'll ring. I wait in hope.

- 1 jumper
- 2 pairs of trousers
- 1 Campingninja t-shirt
- 1 sock (not smelly)
Why not let the ninja show you how.....

Campingninja tip of the week demo: don't fill your kettle or pan to the brim with water when you just want a cup of tea. Simply fill your cup with cold water then pour into the kettle to boil - it will take no time at all and use far less gas. Can you afford to miss it?
