Anyone interested in a meet up in Mid Wales around October time? I know of a few good places local to me where we can wild camp for a night and have a good chilled out skill share

We may well be interested in this. I would have thought though that for a group meet the land owners permission or an official site might be a good idea. It's easy to stealth camp on your own but not so easy in a group.

Yes fair comment Greg. Does anyone know of anywhere in Mid Wales?

I've been making enquiries for a while now but getting little response at the moment. People are a little reluctant to a) allow a group of, probably, mostly blokes on a formal campsite or b) allow any unknown group onto their land with the publicity of 'wild camping' recently.

I will continue to make enquiries (I have a number of farming contacts) but, in the short term, don't hold your breath.

Was thinking about treating myself to a couple of nights at the Dolgoch bunkhouse when things improved however with so many of us itching to get out it could be worth opening a dialogue with them and renting the entire place for a weekend or longer.

Or there's Hafren Forest Bunkhouse; Sarah's breakfasts are fantastic :)

There's room to camp as well as the bunkhouse itself; we could put canoes on the lake, there's off-piste cycle tracks through the forest and a nice trek to the source of the river Severn - just a thought.

OK, I've had an initial positive response from Hafren Bunkhouse. Sarah is going to email me tomorrow with some options.

I’d definitely be interested in attending. I do a lot of wild camping but always alone so would be great to chill with some like minded people

Not heard back yet, sorry.

I'll drop Sarah another email just to remind her. I know she has a pretty hectic day-job at the moment as well.

OK, it looks like this could be on now! :)
I'm just waiting for a couple of weekend dates when they can accommodate us. When I have those I'll put up a new thread so that it's clear (from the top) what is being proposed and people can sign up to it.

Apologies if the dates available don't satisfy everyone; we'll have more choice another time.
