    I've got Saturday on Fallow and now have to replace the grill element on our oven on Sunday. Fun always gets in the way....

    Sorry Doughster, I should have said that I agreed to give Steve a lift if you decided you weren't going. I'm plan B not plan A. :p

    Come along!

    A Jock eh?
    I'll be at Cardiff a week Sunday whatching our boys give your boys a kicking (typo: Nearly published that as "licking").

    We're playing Ireland this Sunday and it's 3pm kick off which is an inconvenient time for me. I've contacted the Welsh and Irish team but they won't move it to fit in with our camp out. Very rude!

    I'm still up for coming how many of you are going? to be honest looking at the news it's going to be -10 in that area so i will be taking my tipi and a bag of coal for the fire inside and not a poncho. I travelled around Scotland in feb 2008 some spots around ratagan and Ullapool were -17 and if I never had the tipi I'd have frozen. Even tempted to take my camper. Oh and as for a cooking pot I got a Dutch oven if you want me to bring?

    The forcasts I've checked tonight shows -1 at the coldest for this area. Met office show positive temp's for the entire weekend. We certainly don't want you to freeze to death, but we don't want you to asphyxiate either. I'm sure you know what your doing though. I'll bring enough wood to last out so there shouldn't be any fatalities!

    When you are on the road to the farm you will eventually come to a left turn that goes sharply downhill,turn down there and at the bottom there is a car parking area on the left.Walk over the bridge and go through the gate on the right (watch your step) and you're in the site.
    The farmer will find you for payment.

    I may be able to make the Friday night:)
