    Its really good to have a lurker , come out of the shadows and contribute to the thread , our little Dartmoor thing is not restricted in any way to existing members , or people that have been before etc etc .

    So, jacko1066 ( Steve ) thanks for your comments , i understand of course Cambridge is a long way to come , when you don't know what you are letting yourself in for and don't know anyone , but as you can see we are a very friendly and lively bunch . True we may not take Bushcrafting too seriously , but we always have a great time .

    Testament to the fact , that 2 newbies took the plunge for the last meet and enjoyed it so much they are coming again , to my mind thats exactly what it is all about .

    Anyway , if ever there is a time that you feel the urge to , find time in your work schedule , and think sod it i will travel down for a nose , you , along with any other lurkers would always be more than welcome to come and try it out , its flexible enough that you can always come a few days early or leave a few days late , as i have control over the site annually . Anyway suffice to say one day " Come On Down "

    Looks like I'll have to make a special trip to Dartmoor in the first couple weeks of March, as well as at the end of it. Must sample the moorland birch sap, see how it compares to our midland offerings. I should be there, as usual lol.

    Ok ! This meet looks like its going to be a culinary delight , so as we don't end up with more food than we can shake a stick at , just a suggestion , that those intending to cook , actually cater for say 4 heads , that way we can all sample each others cooking !

    Its NOT compulsory , but those who fancy a go , great , those who " can't cook won't cook " don't have to, so Chef Newman has started the ball rolling with his dhansak , anyone else has any ideas please post them , and see what we end up with !

    We have plenty of time to compile a final list , and i think we could be in for a veritable woodland banquet , yummy !!

    Also valid point by Adam , about the birch sap rising , about the second week in March , sometimes because we are so many feet above sea level , it can be later , but seeing as we have had such a mild winter , it could be on time .
    I can always pop up and check , so for any interested in the elixir if life , that only comes but once a year , give me a shout .

    I'm an ok cook on a stove with all the bits and pieces.... In the woods, on a camp fire, I'm limited to chilli and rice or stuff out a tin.

    However, so I'm not completely dipping out, I'd like to bring and prep some campfire baked chocolate and marshmallow stuffed banananananas. Will bring enough for all, so what I lack in creativity I'll make up for in numbers ;)

    Hope thats okies with all? :)

    I will come along to see what you all get up to on the moor.

    will be driving from bristol area, if i can offer anyone with a lift get in touch.

    i like a bit of road kill or what i can find on the shore "stir fry of the woods" (works well with pheasant and squirrel and those crayfish) i will bring the spices and see what we can find

    Hi Steve , welcome aboard, nice touch with the offer of a lift , and very interesting angle on your " stir fry of the woods " looks like we will have a lot of things to try at the dinner table ! Look forward to meeting you .

    Jon , I don't think anyone wants to see my face on a book ! it's bad enough when rogue photos appear on here , still i am sure some other readers of this thread will know what you are talking about !

    I have never tried " now't more " but if big Al has anything to do with it , past experiences tell us it will be very good .

    That dam Badger ! digs trenches like he splits logs ! At least the one for Newman , was dug at at a leisurely pace , and only when he peered in was it easy to give him that shove , to rifle his gear , you want to see all of my new olive drab clothing , it's ace !
