    Would anyone be up for a meet in South Wales around early April Ish just for a weekend? Perhaps we could do it in Bridgend where the moot usually is?

    Anyone interested?

    Will

    The moot site is very expensive even if you could rent it, you need to find somewhere else I'm afraid. There is a nice site in Brecon that allows fires and will be open, on the river and you can fish there.

    http://www.priorymillfarm.co.uk/campsite.htm

    There is a field at the far end of the site you could snag for yourselves. A very quiet site and yet is walking distance to a pub. This would make a good venue if you are meeting people for the first time, you can chat, camp, have a fire or go down the pub to break the ice.

    Would love to meet up with you guys, I'm new to the area and still a little green to these meets. would like to attend (if welcome ???) I’m just in Swansea so not far at all.
    I’m also looking to arrange a meet soon in Pembrokeshire if any ones interested, I’ve got a small farm with about 30 acres also with 15 being woodland should have full run of the place if needed. we currently run it as a campsite have a look www.tirbachfarm.co.uk

    Thanks Duggz

    I just took a job in Abergavenny starting in August. I am looking forward to living out of London, not much in the way of bushcraft going down in Peckham unless your in my garden or sitting room. I would be interested in attending some meets after August (and sooner if I can timetable it in).

    Where in Abergavenny, Neville Hall perhaps? Its a nice town and close to some great countryside, you'll have a great time there.

    How did you guess. I suppose most of the throughput
    of people is through the hospital. Got a 2-3 year rotation so I'm really looking forward to getting to know the national park intimately!

    I worked there back in 2000, did a few months working trauma, nice hospital, nice staff, nice town. Your in a good spot, everything is to hand, the Beacons etc.

    Settle in and get in touch as I am camping once a month now not far from you.

    I thought I would try and rejuvinate this thread.
    I have now moved to Wales and settled into my new home. I was wondering if there would be much interest in trying to get a meet organised before the end of summer. C'mon, you know you want to come out and play in the woods!
