    Hello there.

    Is there anyone around Gloucester area that would be intrested in a meetup at all?

    A pint and a natter would be a good start.

    Hi Luke, there are a few of us on here now but all attempts to form a local group seem to have failed. I'm interested but do have a number of committments already arranged

    I get at least one trip a month, so I'll keep an eye out on this thread.

    I know there have been various successful and not so successful attemts to get us Glawster locals togeather.

    Myself, MrMel and Jackal 211 have had a couple of great beers and nights out in the wood.

    I think we really do need to try and get something going here finally.

    So I propose we leave this thread running for a couple of weeks, which by then will have hopefully had quite a few local visitors, then set up a meet in a convenient pub.

    There are a couple of us that have access to woodland, including myself. Plus we have some beautiful ancient forest in the area.

    I have struggled to find any time for my passion over the last year and a half due to a new business venture, but now it's ticking along, I can finally have more time in the woods ... yippee!

    Luke

    P.S. I have just been admiring your work Dreadhead. There's some fine stuff there.

    I'm just outside yate guy's.
    I'd be up for a camp out at some point in the near future.

    Wife is due to give birth to our 3rd child any day now, so I put emphasis on "Near future" taking all thing's into consideration..

    Is there a day of the week / weekend that would be best for everyone here to meet for a drink?

    Hopefully we can arrange something for the beginning of February, if that works for all??

    Hello MrMel, I'm fine ta. How are you?
    It has been quite a while.
    Depending on where we meet, and if you're still living in the same place, I may be able to give you a lift mate.

    Bit far for me to travel for a beer (Oxfordshire), but having been born and raised in Gloucester it would be rude to not go for an overnight camp!

    I'll keep an eye on the thread

    I'm good thanks Luke.
    I'm still in the same place, just me these days though so a lift would be great depending on location. hopefully we can agree on somewhere I can get to.
    Have you heard from Steve lately?
