:( You had to pick the one weekend I wasn't away with the Scouts didn't you! ...and I've just arranged to take some friends climbing on the Saturday. Oh, and I am out with the Scouts on Remembrance Sunday.

:sigh:

Next time Gadget, next time...

I'd have liked to have come along, but my bushcrafting is over now until the spring. The old knees are really aching now the cold weather is here. Wish I was 18 again!

Here is a link for a map to get to the site.
http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.s...=4&ar=Y&mapp=newmap.srf&searchp=newsearch.srf
The site is just off the A49 near to the junction with the A556. The road leading to the site is opposite Overdale Lane across the A49. Follow the track(there is a small scout sign at the top), past a few house and buldings until you reach a 5way junction with gates. Take the gate on the right, it is a muddy track but cars get along no problem, cross the bridge and there is a car park on the left, this is the Sandiway site. There is a building and a field to its left, we are using the area behind the field to the left of the building(looking from the track).
I will be there from early Friday(work permitting :rolleyes: ) and will put up some signs from the A49 to confirm the way for everyone. If anyone wants to go a day early or leave a day later it is no problem, just let me know by PM so I can let people know.
If anyone needs a lift from a nearby station, drop me a pm with details and we can sort it out. If anyone needs a lift from further afield, I am driving from Widnes on Friday morning but I am probably going to stay Sunday night and go straight into work Monday (wife permitting :rolleyes: ), so would probaly not be able to take anyone home.

The plan is to have a get together and anyone who has any skills will pass them on, there is no formal timetable but don't be scared to ask around, the skills are there some people just prefer to be asked for their help rather than feel they are pushing it on people!
If anyone has a skill they want to learn post it up, I am sure someone will offer to help :D .

Any questions about the weekend, ask away.

Hi all,
I have quite a few shotgun cartridge match boxes (matches not included) ready made including wet and dry sandpaper (for lighting matches). I will be bringing them to the meet and selling them 2 for 50p (colours may vary), if you are interested please post or pm me. :)

Congratulations Dave :D . It is an amazing feeling being a new dad, take loads of photos they don't stay tiny for long! :(
The meet is going well, I am going back in a few minutes just returned from remembrance Sunday parade. Only a few of us there, I think the weather has put some people off, but we have been reasonably sheltered and had Emberglows hot house to shelter in too!
Got to get back now and do stuff! :D
