I'll be there for the whole weekend, booked the hotel last night.. no way i'm camping.

I can tell you have never done a tour on JHC......
RAF chap, we try and find the nearest 5* hotel
In my 22 years in the RAF I’ve never “ checked in “, benefits of bouncing from one JHC unit to the next.
Back on topic, as others have said camping does offer a unique experience, getting amongst it sometimes has its rewards

I'd never get the chance to go into theatre with JHC in the branch I'm in, which sucks.

I'll be there camping from the Thursday to the Monday, 160 odd miles each way.

Last one I managed to get to was Belgium and Kent before that.

Ok now my 227 doesn’t seem as awful. Might need to install a radio first...

been there and done that a few times. not for IMMs though.

 

mine would have been longer though traveling down from Trollhättan.

 

have done it without any ferries as well.

 

safe drive.

If your planning to go and haven’t got your ticket yet, you’ve got until tomorrow night to get them before they go up to £100 and you don’t get the t shirt or goodie bag

Is it worth going for the whole weekend or will just a day be enough?

yes there is. bog roll and beer. may be some food and a means of cooking it. seating as you will need it. nothing like a Minishow  more like a festival. and you are getting together with people you have not seen for a year and maybe have known for 30 years. it kinda explains why you have people driving down from Sweden and up from Italy and Spain. not to mention the ones flying in from other parts of the world. some Kiwis are shipping cars over for it!
