    Thumbs Up Do Not Forget Suntan Cream!!!!!!

    There is no shade ANYWHERE at Santa Pod. The land is flat which means theres nothing stopping you from baking in the sun. 24 Degrees tomorrow but expect that to be a lot hotter at the pod because of all the rays bouncing off the cars (and I'm not joking). It may not feel hot but the UV will get you.

    DRINK plenty of water. Not just alcohol WATER. Coffee is a directic and will make your body dehydrate faster so avoid if you can alcohol has the same effect too so try not to go too OTT.

    REAPPLY. Just because you put some on in the morning doesn't mean its gonna last all day. Hourly applications would be the best bet.

    COVER UP. Those who burn badly should cover up where possible, also to those who are thinning on top wear a hat but remember your body looses more heat from the top of your head than it does anywhere else in your body.

    I've been twice now to PVS and got sun stroke both times (including the second time wearing sun tan lotion).

    REMEMBER
    DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
    SUNTAN CREAM YOURSELF REGULARY
    COVER UP IF YOUR PRONE TO TANNING/BURNING
    FIND SHADE. AOC HAS A GAZEBO THAT CAN FIT A FAIR FEW UNDER SO BRING A CHAIR AND GET OUT OF THE SUN.
    Its a jam thing

    Take your own drinking water! I got through 6+ 500ml bottles last year & they weren't bloody cheap!!! I have 4 2 litre bottles of Tesco value water for 17p each this time, I AM PREPARED! (that doesn't happen often!)

    I burnt so bad last year, I certainly won't be forgetting my suncream!
