    Thanks for this Dn!
    I take it we meet up a drive in via a few of our 4x4's?
    Bringing in packs, food, more wood that sort of thing?
    Best.
    Chris.

    Exactly that Chris. It is about a 10 minute walk with somewhere to park 'non 4x4' vehicles. My Land Rover popped it's cloggs in the summer with a blown big end so it would be good if there were at least 1 4x4 just to transport provisions etc.

    We should have some upper limit on this , no?
    Maybe a reserve list if folks pull out nearer the time?
    What thinks You?

    ..For teaching purposes, with the wind blowing a hooly, we need to get close enough to hear what is being said out on the moor.
    Loads of room tho by the looks, so if the 'teaching bit is done inside and is is more just bit of a meet....it doesn't matter so much.

    It was on my mind earler, Chris. I resolved my fears with the following mental reasoning:

    Its a few months away yet.
    Not everyone will want to be engaged with navigation and can just chill
    There is shed loads of accommodation space and camping space.
    For night navigation I can split the group into Friday and Saturday night.

    I need to go away for a couple of days so I will just be on my phone. Later in the week I shall start putting togeter an email 'group' so that we can share exactly what people's aspirations are... I really am quite accepting of peolple's views if all they want to do is chill out and have a tin of beer :eek:

    Having said that, the eventual group number will be dictated by the amount that want to be 'active'. So, in short, your right :D



    I'll pm everyone in a couple of days or so, in the meanwhile if anyone taking part reads this could you please pm me your email address to share with the group?

    Jnr Wild thing is more than welcome

    posting from my phone so please forgive the brevity :)


    OK we also have CdeC's mates so let's draw a line here and ask for reserves next (I'm sure we will have spaces as someone will no doubt drop out closer to the time


    :)
