There is hanging space John, and we can drive right up to where we camp, and there's always the edge of the forest just next to us :) I just suggested bringing options so you have a choice. If the worst came to teh worst you can sling your hammock between my defender and your van :)

In principle, I have no problem. However, I believe (but you will have to check) that NRW (the Forestry Managers) have declared flying drones over their land breaks their byelaws and the purpose of 'quiet enjoyment' of the forest. A number of English forestry organisations (Like the New Forest) have done the same.

The field we are using is big enough for you to practice away from our camp but I suspect most of us would not be happy if you were operating for long periods or near where we are trying to enjoy the peace.

We must also be careful (in all our activities) not to disturb wildlife, farm stock, locals or tourists; we want to be able to return to the site in the future without complaints.

Sorry, re-reading my post, it did sound more negative than it was meant to. I'll leave it to you :)

Arrived home, unpacked the car and sorted out the kit. Just had lunch and having a sit down, I thought I’d thank everyone for a great weekend and especially to Andy for sorting it!

I'm back at home, showered and sitting in the garden with a cold beer.
This is the most relaxed I've felt in the last 6 months. Thank you to Andy for organising everything and thank you to everyone for the very warm welcome on my first meet up, I had a fantastic time.
