    Great weekend with plenty of merryment. Some good air rifle practice. New friends met. A nice walk over the moors and some educating about prehistoric remains from a very learned gentleman.
    Saturday night got to about minus 3 with ice inside and outside of my basha but toasty warm with the extra wrapping of a Dutch wool blanket.
    Thanks Ivan (or as we now call him "Superfly") for another beauty.

    Thanks for that!! What an excellent weekend. Shame about the rain yesterday, but that's Dartmoor. And what a top-notch bunch of people. Looking forward to the next one already.

    Here's a link to the photos:

    The wildlife camera caught shots of something small in the field last night, so I've uploaded the video with the photos.

    Sounds like you had a good time. Sorry to have missed it, but really appreciated the call and the kind thoughts - you lovely bunch of nutters. Will enjoy looking at the phots and videos and will do my very best to be along on the next one.

    Thanks to Rick for bothering , i'm not sure i could do that , just for the day , cheers and for the hat , oh and the elocution lessons seem to be working , that cockney drawl is waining !

    Thankyou to Stuart , for shooting the rabbit and show and tell skinning , cooking and sharing , what a pair of kahunas ! ( the bunny , not Stuart ! ) also letting me see , how eventually i want my minimalist set up .

    Nice, I'm glad to see Adam's sporting a flat cap.
    Can't wait for the football season to finish so I get my weekends back.

    Well now you mention it Ivan, an electric hookup for the TV would be great next time! I still have a giggle about the 8 man super tent that just appeared next to Stuart's minimalist set up!

    Right ! a bit more , nice to see Tommy again seems like ages and good to see a bit of father son bonding and crafting , sucessfully a functioning bow and arrow set ! Foxy as ever for being Foxy , the cuddles the mothering and , always prepared to laugh at my jokes ! Dusty for his backward football skills .

    Ickystickywaspyneuman, thanks for the coat , came in very handy for a few hours on the Saturday, and cheers for coming down eary and keeping the old fart company ! oh and what you made from the whole chickens and what ever else you had up your olive sleeve .

    Dave53 seems to be the only member who uses the reservation and comprehensive , plain english booking system , and if he ever puts that woodlore down , it goes missing right !

    Jon , you showed everybody how to get really cold at night , whilst son was toasty ! moral of story don't let kids borrow your kit , and nice to see we have a crack shot to challenge Adam , well don Cory rootin tootin shootin !

    Of course i was exceptionally warm , thanks to doing a sneaky deal with Darren on a new bag ! Dont tell Katie , and if he ever misplaces the little falkniven , same story as Dave , you haven't seen it right !

    Alistair , for most unusual set up of tarp and paracord , next time you want to pitch a little closer to the action !Got you on the snore cam you sod !

    Me , I have learned a valuable bushcraft lesson this time , when you are all sat in a circle around the fire , and somebody passes you a bottle of something , don't take a swig , just pass it on , because it makes you very sleepy , which leads to bottoms in your face , great photos , and the loss of use of one's legs , coupled with an early night .

    Just a mention in dispatches , for those unable to attend , Lucy feel better soon , same comment applies to Trevor , oh and Katie , Bushwhacker we need your tracking skills , if we have any chance of catching enough food to feed all of us !

    Thanks Guys
