Yeah, all doing good thanks Steve, just going to go and put a tent up because it seems the right thing to do :D
Hope you and yours are all good?

I am missing it - big time! :(
But this morning I was teaching Fire Lighting and recently talked the new owner of my permission woods into letting me keep on playing in there as often as I want :)
And the sun is shining ....

Yep, real shame :(

Good news on the permission front though John. I'll have a dram tonight and toast to your health and fortune :) - maybe even light the fire pit.

It's the alternate year when Ian can't make it anyway due to work, but I'm missing it and looking forward to when we can all meet up.

I had deliberately pushed this - and a load of other good things we had planned - to the back of my mind. Then I got a calendar reminder this morning. . Still, got to keep positive. Hope everyone is doing ok, and hopefully we'll all catch up next year .

Tis a shame, the forecast is good for the week too. I put my bell tent up on Saturday for my stepson and 3yr old grandson to have a different sort of a weekend, I’ll have a night or two in it this week and take some pics to toast all you intrepid mooters.

It'll take another year to find out for sure - but I wonder if this can be the year when I break the habit of taking way to much stuff!

Of course, it could equally be the year when I decide that my truck is too small!

Stiff upper lips everyone, we'll be back in the woods soon!

Oh, I do. The footprint of your Robens is my garden... And... I live 20 mtrs from the main road.
How lucky am I then ?
And I can't just casually wander down to Crowden ATM.

It’s a nice tent, but not Robens, it’s an Obelink Sahara Deluxe. Deluxe just means zipped groundsheet so it’s optional and the sides can be rolled up. It was a good buy at around £380 compared to the Soulpad tents which were the glam flavour of the month (identical Chinese heavy canvas manufacture and twice the price). It’s put up with some heavy rain and wind and not flinched or leaked apart from a bit of puddle splash back through one of the half moon vents around the edge.

Hope you can get out soon Dave, we’re going to wait until Autumn to get away for a while, hopefully the areas will be less busy and the Covidiots driven home by slight drizzle, though I doubt they’ll take their rubbish with them. One of the things we didn’t really consider at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic was how much of a tie it is to plant up loads of pots and growbags in a sort of stoic wartime spirit. It’s been a pleasure to grow stuff to eat, but now we can’t get away because it all needs watering (a lot), feeding, harvesting, eating, preserving etc Our garden looks (looked) lovely, but we’re about the same distance as you from the A286, we hear the traffic all day though it’s pretty quiet at night.
