    Hi Lizz,
    Cardiff based here, I'm a newbie here too.

    I've not planned to get to any meet ups yet but may be in the future.

    Hi Mike, I've wondered about a candle lantern... I used to share one with a former partner, but he has custody of it now! It was an old style one and came from the U.S. And a nightmare to get proper candles for. But if they're easy to get here now maybe I'll give it a go. Welcome to another Cardiff based May newbie..

    Hi Lizz,

    I'm a bit further east, over Pontypool way. There are a few active people in the area, and another band over around Chepstow.

    I've mucked about with candle lanterns a few times, but came to the conclusion that I didn't need one in the end as it was weight for no great reward.

    If you are ever in or around Gwent, or want to be, drop me a line.

    Another Mike

    Hi Lizz,

    I'm West of you near Port Talbot. I don't get out as much as I'd like and still consider myself a beginner with plenty to learn.

    On the UCO lanterns, I have both. They are good to have, I prefer the larger of the two but often a good head torch is just as good.

    Richard

    Hi there, I think come Christmas time I might try and organise a wee meet up for locals.. Which given how far most of us travel in wales to meet with like-minded folks will cover all of South and Mid Wales and anyone else who fancies it! Let me know if you're up for it cos then it could be a very mini-moot..

    Hey folks, I posted the idea of a mini moot at Christmas and it looks like a few people might like the idea.. So, I'll look into possibilities for a few days of camping and cooking and crafting... I know what cash is like come the end of the year so I will look for very cheap or free! And if anyone has an idea don't be shy, drop me a line about it.

    Hey John, hope you're ok? When's the November moot if there is one? And if not November is there a Christmas one? Well, not actually Christmas, but you know what I mean? And do you get to wear tinsel instead of a boa?


    Hmm I should have sent this as a PM to John, these fora don't work like Facebook do they? Drat.
