I'm guessing we will be canoeing from one place to another rather than going back on to the same site. So we will be carrying our kit in the canoes. If so could you let me know because I will need to buy a couple of extra dry bags.

1. 2 nighter 2 dayer. Fiday Meet/first night at holybush inn (tis right on the bank) between Glasbury and Hay camp in the woods there and they allow fires. But could sneak to the pub for a pre trip scan and an ale if that what people wanted. Paddle down to Monnington falls/ Preston (i think this may be the camsite alreadu mentioned) new court farm again fire allowed. this is a 19 mile leg. Next day Paddle to Hereford (about 11 miles) stop off for an early picnic lunch possible then mide afternoon finish and home (either the rowing club or Bishops meadow.

this site gives a good break down of the course

I might need to borrow a bouyancy aid Stewart, unless Will is including with his spare seat.:p

My car is playing up at the moment and doesn't make good driving. Would I be able to hitch a lift with anyone. I would be able to get to a convienient location en route. And of course I would pay petrol money.

Might have to drop out of this one guys.. I might be getting shipped state-side again to help fix a couple of machines..

will know more as the week progresses..

sorry :eek:
Once you know for definite let me know - Dave was interested in coming along so if you drop out he may take your place.

I'll bring a spare bouyancy aid just in case.

I can pick you up, but I'm off visiting family after the trip so wouldn't be able to drop you off.
Theres an industrial site at the M4/M5 junction that would make a good pickup. perhaps Will could brop you off on the way back?

A lift there would be excellent Stewart, thank you very much. What time were you going to go because I won't be able to get there until about 5 I'm guessing. Just say if it doesn't fit with your plans don't worry. I thought that the lay by on the roundabout on the last junction on the English side of the bridge (junction with the M49) may be easier.

Are hammocks allowed on both of the campsites?

Thats a bit late for me - I should be passing there at about 3 - any chance of you getting off early?

The second campsite is in an orchard so shouldn't be a problem putting a hammock up

I will bring a roll mat just in case.

Doubt I will be able to get there much earlier actually Stewart, but I will confirm tomorrow.
Will - what time are you planning on leaving unless I can get a lift with Steve if he is still going.

Cheers

Steve had had to drop out - too much work on. I have left a message for Dave to see if he fancies joining us.

Adam - did you have any luck getting off work early?

No unfortunately I can't because I have been working with someone else and get a lift from them. I have persuaded my Dad to give me a lift up, which means that I will probably arrive at about 6.30. Would it still be ok to hitch a lift back Will?

Could someone PM me their mobile number just in case I can't find you/the campsite.

I can pick you up at 5 at the roundabout. I'm only leaving London early so I don't get trapped in the Friday night Exodus. I'll just kick my heels in the nearest services for an hour or so.

I'll pm you with my mobile - give me a call to confirm the arrangements.
