    Hi Simon M

    I am off next week in the campervan. If I got up to the lakes and me and my son hammocked would there be room for a classic volkswagen for SWMBO and mini SWMBO?

    Just a thought as we may end up going south, I wont really know until I look at the weather report etc.

    Bodge:)

    No problem Bodge - you can even make oatcakes if you want for breakfast! :D

    I'll add you and family to the list - don't worry if you can't make it.

    unfortunatley with us leaving tuesday I dont think they will keep till friday or saturday, actually I guess they would have to be eaten by thursday to stop them going stale.:D

    I am taking my gas fridge though so I may pop some in there and see how it goes.

    Sadly I'm going to have to drop out.
    I cracked my rib about three weeks back and it still hurts like a biatch.
    So camping out isn't an option.....

    Ribs and collar bones are so awkward for healing because you cant strap them up. I feel for you, have done it a few times myself.

    hope to meet you on the next one.

    ...too short notice.

    My own fault for staying off the site for so long.

    If you have another I'd definitely be interested.

    First and last time for this venue I'm afraid! I leave the school at the end of this term so lose access to the site.

    Go on - you know you want to!

    Weather looks promising for this, light rain at times during Friday and Sunday with no rain forecast at all for Saturday. Light breeze all weekend with temp up to about 18C.:D :cool:

    I aim to be on site by late morning - I have to drop my daughter off at Brownie camp on the way, so can't make it any sooner. See you all there.

    Sorry Simon, OT but do you want the fireguard I made for the stove? It'll likely end up on the tip if not. Either way it's no great shakes :)

    Back on topic - I'm likely to be stuck in work til 5pm so likely to arrive about 8 - 9pm. Will I be able to get the car up to where we are pitched?

    Hi Matt,

    Fireguard - Yes please!

    Carparking - Depends on where you pitch! Its not a huge wood and you can drive at least half way in. Either way, I'm sure there will be enough people to give you a lift carrying gear!
