    Always is - interesting and weather like that. I'm shooting in the morning so may trade the chute for a lump of venison if I'm lucky John......

    PITA - but work is work at the moment and it can lead to a lot more.... :)

    Anybody driving to this meet from the south west who wants to carshare? John pulling out means I'm on the peasant wagon and won't be able to bring a pile of nice ash to burn.

    Anyvody got a nice big pan for the stew too?


    There's a ready to use bothy on Cader Idris... I've never climbed it but really want to since I heard about staying there turning you into a poet or a madman, it sounds fun either way.

    Why? I'm sure there will be a few people there, we don't need a register James. Just those that are there are there.

    I'm still up for it.
    But there again I'm WELSH and not afraid of it being a little chilly. I'll just snuggle up with a wooly sheep.

    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. I have my inlaws visiting for the weekend So i'll be going anyway. I would rather camp out in a blizzard than spend the weekend with the mother-in-law.
