    Aloha!

    So who are the main boys I need to be speaking to who organise the South Wales meets?
    I live in Swansea but im from Glynneath and know the Neath valley like the back of my hand if anyone fancies a weekend trip soon? But im open to all the meets that are around Wales so can someone enlighten me, or does anyone fancy one soon?

    So to get an idea whos interested in Camping in the Beacons early in Febuary, are as follows:


    Blaen Nedd Isaf (Farm)

    Postcode: CF44 9JG

    Date 3rd - 5th Feb

    Looks good - is it an official site or a permission you have organised?
    What is the availability of firewood/perm to have fires etc?
    I can do early feb:)

    My days of camping outside of authorised site (privately negotiated or public campsites) are in the past now as I have no desire to be accused of tresspass or damaging woodlands :)
    I know of a cheap, authorised site near there ... but it has no facilities or firewood (BYO) ....

    Ive always been careful where I camp, If i think im going to damage or put anything in danger, Ill move on. Having camped here before, and people who regularly camp there, I dont think a couple of experienced craftsmen are going to get a slap on the wrist.

    I may be able to do the first weekend in Feb. I'd prefer the site John mentioned.
