Great weekend with plenty of merryment. Some good air rifle practice. New friends met. A nice walk over the moors and some educating about prehistoric remains from a very learned gentleman.
Saturday night got to about minus 3 with ice inside and outside of my basha but toasty warm with the extra wrapping of a Dutch wool blanket.
Thanks Ivan (or as we now call him "Superfly") for another beauty.

Sounds like you had a good time. Sorry to have missed it, but really appreciated the call and the kind thoughts - you lovely bunch of nutters. Will enjoy looking at the phots and videos and will do my very best to be along on the next one.

Mornin ! So much to say so little time ! Yesterday i just walked around in a zombie state , always do after a meet , anyway , great meet as ever , lots of little tales and memories to re live over the coming posts .

Firstly a big thankyou to all who attended , your support and friendship is something special (wipes away tear ! )

Magic photos Joel , you have an eye for that sort of thing , just the one mind ! Cheers for the pipe and baccy , now a convert , i think your pals enjoyed the experience , you know hairdo and the Aus ! nice tent by the way , JCB in next week to make them an alternative pitch , perhaps one not straddling a stream bed !

Thanks to Rick for bothering , i'm not sure i could do that , just for the day , cheers and for the hat , oh and the elocution lessons seem to be working , that cockney drawl is waining !

Thankyou to Stuart , for shooting the rabbit and show and tell skinning , cooking and sharing , what a pair of kahunas ! ( the bunny , not Stuart ! ) also letting me see , how eventually i want my minimalist set up .

Cheers to Arry for the fag breaks ! and showing you culinary skills , brilliant fry up , and when i have a spare hour i will also digest your picture gallery ! the newt one was the star of the weekend !

More later ....

Nice, I'm glad to see Adam's sporting a flat cap.
Can't wait for the football season to finish so I get my weekends back.

Well now you mention it Ivan, an electric hookup for the TV would be great next time! I still have a giggle about the 8 man super tent that just appeared next to Stuart's minimalist set up!

Right ! a bit more , nice to see Tommy again seems like ages and good to see a bit of father son bonding and crafting , sucessfully a functioning bow and arrow set ! Foxy as ever for being Foxy , the cuddles the mothering and , always prepared to laugh at my jokes ! Dusty for his backward football skills .

Ickystickywaspyneuman, thanks for the coat , came in very handy for a few hours on the Saturday, and cheers for coming down eary and keeping the old fart company ! oh and what you made from the whole chickens and what ever else you had up your olive sleeve .

Dave53 seems to be the only member who uses the reservation and comprehensive , plain english booking system , and if he ever puts that woodlore down , it goes missing right !

Jon , you showed everybody how to get really cold at night , whilst son was toasty ! moral of story don't let kids borrow your kit , and nice to see we have a crack shot to challenge Adam , well don Cory rootin tootin shootin !

Of course i was exceptionally warm , thanks to doing a sneaky deal with Darren on a new bag ! Dont tell Katie , and if he ever misplaces the little falkniven , same story as Dave , you haven't seen it right !

Alistair , for most unusual set up of tarp and paracord , next time you want to pitch a little closer to the action !Got you on the snore cam you sod !

Me , I have learned a valuable bushcraft lesson this time , when you are all sat in a circle around the fire , and somebody passes you a bottle of something , don't take a swig , just pass it on , because it makes you very sleepy , which leads to bottoms in your face , great photos , and the loss of use of one's legs , coupled with an early night .

Just a mention in dispatches , for those unable to attend , Lucy feel better soon , same comment applies to Trevor , oh and Katie , Bushwhacker we need your tracking skills , if we have any chance of catching enough food to feed all of us !

Thanks Guys

Ivan...
