    Talking Police at Ecamp The story

    Ok I will slowly reveal the story so here is Part 1.

    So what really happened on ecamp when the police turned up

    There we were just minding our biz and chilling in the cabin waiting for Dave to come back when we hear a car pull up, so without looking we turn the lights off pretending to hide. With a lot of childish giggles we are sitting in the dark when two figures appear at the kitchen window and one starts shining in his touch and knocking on the window. With that a few 'uh ohs' are said and I get up and go outside to find a cop car and two coppers asking what we are doing here.
    More later..

    Down the hill is the canal, the railway and a pub you can't access by road IIRC?

    From where we were, 'Down the Hill' was the rest of the campsite.
    We were in the building opposite the shop and there was another Group camping 'Down the Hill'. Every car that came onto site asked us where the Group was, as if we were Service Crew and the reply was........

    part 2

    So I told them that we are from all over the country and here for the weekend they asked if there was any others on sit so I said there was another group “Down the hill”, then they said did we see a distress flare and I said we have been in the cabin for a while so they went down the hill to chat with the other group.
    So here is when we start having fun I will let the others continue as it was so funny at the time I don’t think I could do it justice.

    So everyone went outside, after getting over the fact that it wasn't actually Dave who had come back, and we eventually stopped laughing for around 30 seconds. Before eShaddowMan made his first Photo.

    After great hilarity, including the suggestion that the tyres might go missing and be replaced by bricks, we saw more headlights coming down the road and so we switched the lights out and hid again...........

    Then Dave arrived to be freaked out by:
    a) no lights on
    b) police car out front
    c) random shouts of 'Put your bag on the floor and your hands behind your head!'

    Think we all got bored waiting and gave up on it.
    What do you care what other people think! - Richard P. Feynman

    A person needs only three tools in life: WD-40, duct tape and a hammer. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If either doesn't work, use the hammer.
