I agree with the other comments...thanks for a great weekend, pity about the weather on Saturday night, otherwise it was great to get out into the woods again.

Looking forward to the next meet, wherever it may be.

Goose, it should be in the post tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for coming I had a great time, so much so I have just had a chat with SWMBO and I have got permission to go and play for New Year! :D
The condition I have is that we book the building so she gets a bed!
The building has a kitchen, toilets and showers with bunk rooms and a larger room for eating, socialising or whatever, so who is up for it?
If I get a few interested parties I will start a new thread and sort out the details, check availability, cost and room sizes etc. Obviously you can choose to camp or hang out in the trees and the normal stuff too, rather than this strange idea of sleeping inside in beds :confused: .

Thankyou everyone for making Cameron and i so welcome, we realy enjoyed the company, and as Cameron was the only child there he was accepted by everyone and made to feel welcome.. A BIG THANKS, an opportunity for Cameron to be in in the company of such skilled and aproachable bushcrafters has fueled his interests.
I particualrly enjoyed the time around the fire contemplating life and the meaning of the universe.
The site is great with an abundance of different environments and has loads of possibilities for skills practice. I like the sound of a new year meet, what date????
were in ... Goose :You_Rock_ cheers.....

Just made provisional enquiries about New Year, unfortunately the site is closed completely from 18th of December :( . It is closed for work to be done on the buildings until January, so we cant really work around it.

I know of another site that is smaller and has a buildings with camping space and if remember properly there was an area that could be suitable for hammocks. It is not far from forest camp but is a lot smaller. I will make some enquiries and post again when i find out more, watch this space!

Sorry forgot to reply again! :eek:
Couldn't get the second site, they are closed for December too. :( I tried to talk him round but to be honest I don't think we would have got it if the site had been open anyway! It is a scout site and I get the impression only the likes of cadets or youth groups would get to use the site.
A bunch of knife wielding pyromaniacs that met on the internet wouldn't go down too well! :p
