Dogs are allowed on site, but not really encouraged, they need to be kept under control, last time I took my dog that meant on a lead at all times which can bit of a pain with a labrador, but the "control" is more to do with other users of the site, if we have a group of cubs nearby some leaders get twitchy if there are dogs around.
It depends on the dog really, waylands jack russell(?) would be ok for example but my dog is a bit big and boisterous to take.

Still trying to get organised for the weekend and hoping to make the meet. Anyone have any idea of how many will be there?
I am guessing but I think about a dozen with a few more on Saturday for day and single night visits.
Just got back from the site, I took my explorers down there and visited Graham S who is settled in and enjoying the quiet now! He did an excellent bowdrill demo and lesson for my explorers scouts and three of them managed to make fire :D

A quick reminder for people we are staying on the gullery site which is at the far end of the camp, there is a map by the wardens hut showing the sites and there is a parachute hung as a shelter so it should be easy to find.
There is a supply of firewood at the camp and the ground is reasonably dry.

I've spent today ( and a bit of tomorrow ) making a bushmans horn, out of a real cows horn. Fingers crossed it should be finshed for me to bring along to the meet.

Btw see everyone there :)

Lovely, I can picture it now... campfire, Mr Strop, about 8 beers, and a new horn... anyone planning on getting to sleep? :D:lol:

Just jealous cos I can't attend - enjoy yourselves everyone and remember to take pictures of anything bushcrafty for the forum.

Looks like I should make it. Just need to decide on train to cuddington or 'adventure' of hitching from Leeds.

http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ if anyone needs train info.

Anyone interested in recycling coca cola type aluminium cans in to alchohol stoves bring some cans and I'll demo a method to make them. I'll bring some meths for testing.

Sounds like a good turnout. See you all tonight.
