    One of the plans that came about from this evening's Pub meet is to have a day out into the woods, this is primarily aimed as a scouting trip and a gear shake down session. Just a day trip, nothing too strenuous.

    Where: The woods, Near Canterbury (within ~5 miles of Canterbury)
    When: Sunday 16th March 1030

    The exact location will be confirmed at the proceeding pub meet on the 10th, we're waiting on a couple of leads to come back before making the final decision.

    Please reply if you are interested in joining us for a day out in the woods.

    I'll be there. Anyone feel free to come along whatever your experience/kit. Just about getting out to look at a potential location. Maybe chuck a hammock up and get a brew on.

    Exact coordinates will be given out at the pub meet on the 10th.

    For planning purposes, and to put you in the ball park:

    Date: 16th March 2014
    Time: 1030 RV. We will move off (on foot) form the RV point, so try to be on time.
    Grid Ref: TR16 (yes that is a 2 fig reference, a 10km x 10km patch)
    Nearest station: Chesterfield
    Nearest bus route: Unfortunately this is East Kent and thus buses do not exist on Sundays...
    Terrain: Mixed Broad-leaf Woodland and Coniferous Woodland.
    Parking: Available, at your own risk.
    Water: None, bring your own
    Sanitation: Every tree is a lavatortree... instruction manual...
    Rubbish: Please take home all your rubbish. Leave no trace practices are encouraged.
    Fires: Ground fires not permitted, responsibly used stoves are acceptable.

    See you all Monday, then again Sunday Morning
