I usually just relax in woods, cook lunch, process some wood for communal if needed to top up. Hoping to try a bit of friction fire this meet or maybe go for a walk in local area maybe. I never usually make plans, just wing-it and see what happens on day.

Do you have anything planned?

No not really, figured if there is a communal fire will help out with wood collecting etc. anything else that needs doing i will help out.
Thought about going for a walk. As I'm new il probably just see what people are up too etc. and take it easy.

Thanks for another great weekend !

Was nice to chill, meet a few more people and try out my Poundland oven thing.

I just winged it. Absolutely gorgeous. Butterflied leg of lamb, cooked to perfection, it was sat on asparagus and white wine.

Indeed bud, was great getting out and chilling round campfire. Just a shame I couldn't make it first night. Great to see a couple of new faces. (Thanx for helping out Rich).

Will deffo be trying a joint of beef soon, maybe at next meet. Think I'm going to spit-roast it though, Yorkshire, spuds, stuffing and gravy :D

Had a good over-nighter Friday with my daughter. The long wet grass was a killer especially when we found her boots weren't waterproof :-(

Still we managed thanks to dry socks and freezer bags. Her first night in a hammock was a success. Met a few folks new and old. Glad to see TF's oven worked ok.

Laura made a dream catcher from Hazel, hemp twine, a few beads and spotted woodpecker feathers we found. She left it in a tree by way of a thanks to the woods.

Hope we can make another meet soon.

What a great weekend!
Really good to meet people and have a few drinks (Adz i hope you found the money i left on a leaf for you, put a few quid extra in for the beers).
Will be along to another one for sure!
The lamb was inspiring, i called at Sainsburys on the way home and got a leg for sunday lunch, not as nice as the fire oven version though!

Cool, glad she enjoyed it. :)

Yeah the grass has overgrown a bit in walk up to woods, I guess my Sealskinz did their job though as didnt notice water :D

I didnt spot the dreamcatcher, will have to keep an eye out for that in July, Did you take any pics of it/your night bud?

What a great weekend!

Indeed was a great night, good to have met a couple of new faces round the fire :)

Yeah I found the money bud, but there was no need for the extra £3, I'll knock it off your next time ;)
