West Devon, Edge of Dartymoor!
It's still my intention to arrive Friday, but will be late afternoon if I'm still awake by then.
If not I'll be along Saturday morning/lunchtime - someone save me a couple of trees in the snoring corner :)

@John Fenna - are there any pics / specs on the knife yet?

I'm in negotiations with my wife at the minute.She can't seem to understand the reason I need another knife is the same as she needs more than one pair of shoes.As far as I can see the reasons and arguments for and against are the same for both of us.
I've got a bit put by ,I just need her to put up the difference.

I can't have anything I just want. I have to show that i need it,which is where the shoe defense normally works.

To hopefully get the max number of folk bidding - it will be an auction, with "book bids" for those regulars who cannot get to the meet.

The banks of the Deveron.
Just back from an epic 10 day 1500 mile tours of the UK.

Looking forward to it fellas.

I am probably coming Friday and leaving when I smell too much.

Ate everything I shot though, sorry.....:eek:

Is it it Ok to tip up Friday morning? I come bearing goose and venison and require a decent size pit oven to cook them in; Rich bring your shovel ;-)

Hi guys,
I'd like to join you this weekend if that's ok? Sounds like it'll be fun!
My last meet was a very cold and muddy weekend at Glyn Y Mul in February..... I also missed the Summer Moot but had a pretty good excuse - Got to spend 10 weeks in Canada hiking, paddling and camping. Am suffering cabin fever now and need to escape. Promise not to bore you too much with tales of wildlife encounters and such like!!
Take it easy,
Dave N.

Stewart - I'll give you a ring about the "joined up" cooking...have plenty of time on my hands to do some shopping!

Cheers guys!

I'll bring my running shoes.
"I don't have to outrun the bear, just run faster than you!!"

It will be good to camp without having to cache the food up a tree or worry about becoming bear dinner...

CU soon,
Dave.
