    No idea,it says under his name on the posts banned.
    I've heard and read that glyn y mul is very muddy,not really a problem as long as there's some dry areas to pitch.

    GYM is very muddy and you may find a nice spot, but that'll be a clean spot you have to get caked to get to.

    There are some other sites around and GYM may have improved since I went, but pack your wellies.

    Dougster is right about mud, get ready for some, but there are some good camp areas there. Post a date and I'll pop along for a day and a brew of tea.

    Hi Bowhunter are you on the anglers afloat website? I currently live in aberporth (Cardigan) but i often stay with my dad in Mynydd-y-garreg i kayak quite alot and you say that you camped in the woods in Pembrey? I thought you are not allowed to camp in the forest?

    I'm glad there are plenty of people in this area into the same sort of things.

    also does anybody know anywhere that allows people to shoot rabbits etc for food or for pest control?

    Ooooh, lots of people around =D

    I live in Swansea, and would enjoy spending a few nights with people who understand bushcraft a little more than myself =]. I know the basics of a few things, but it would be nice to meet up with a few people and learn a little bit more about... well, everything really =D

    I'm not sure if I can do camping anytime soon, I'd have to book time off work and double check I havent got anything on with the family. Still, I'm up for something sometime, even if its just a day trip or something =]

    Might see you guys around =D

    As I said guys, I'm happy to sort things with Glyn-y-mul, but I need some dates to work with! You post them up, I'll see which dates look best for all and feed back some ideas and make the arrangements.

    I live near Carmarthenshire/Pembrokeshire border and would be interested in local meets.
    The Preseli hills area is a possilbe wild camp place, I could help with a wild camp/walk - I'm a newcomer to bushcraft but I know my local patch quite well.

    Hello John Fenna - I live a few miles down the road from you - own one of your books. Would love to walk and listen with you, when you are out and about sometime.
