100 % on this guy's providing it doesn't clash with training. Only gone and joined the army haven't I!

Fair enough about the rifles rule, its not like we decimated a species though haha, couldnt hit a barn door that day lol!

Be good to see you all again, think im definitely investing in a front line for this, was getting far to hot in the camping hammock and the its very annoying having the material drape against ones face. Although to my dismay i may have to leave the snugpak at home if the weathers nice!

30-05-2012, 09:55 PM
Also, CAN NOT do weekends of the 8th & 16th.

31-05-2012, 05:45 AM
And I believe I promised to serve up some chicken and chorizo for grub up!

Tony, I trust the market will be open when you arrive?! Must say, that 58' pattern day sack has come in very handy. I use it predominantly as the kitchen; I can fit everything in there bar a Dutch oven ( which I still need!)

04-06-2012, 12:02 PM
any confirmed dates yet guys?!

05-06-2012, 10:56 AM
I have'ant herd anything from Mark since the first post this time round.

07-06-2012, 02:47 PM
I text him a few days ago buy nothing since. Think il drop him a message now.

09-06-2012, 09:18 PM
Sorry for the awall, had no Internet, plus in Dorset for the week, bad weather.
By request shall we meet on Saturday 30th at noon ( the norm ).

09-06-2012, 11:11 PM
I'm up for that see you guys on the 30th:camping:

11-06-2012, 05:59 AM
I set you young uns a challenge. Go light weight. My plan is to come as light as pos. Bed roll, tarp, knife, axe etc see how yu go packing. Let us know how you get on.

11-06-2012, 07:21 AM
I'm down for that haha. Ditching the sleeping bag this time as combine with the snug pak I was boiling! Probably just go with a blanket. Think my kit list will be :

Tarp, hammock, under quilt, blanket. Mini hammock, knife, brew kit.

Do u still want me to do this chorizo chicken stew? Only thing il need is a Dutch oven if anyone has one I could use? And I am NOT forgetting the whiskey this time haha.

But we still have the chataue - noof - de crap in the cache remember !

- does anyone have a dutch oven they could bring along?!

19-06-2012, 08:55 AM
Just as another little side project, if we get time, any one fancy a little shelter building project. So we can leave bits and bobs behind. ?

19-06-2012, 11:54 AM
Yeh I'd give that a go. You looking to utilise that over turned tree?

19-06-2012, 02:13 PM
That's the one. Or the option would be to move the base point around there the upturned stump would make a good reflector, and rain cover.

19-06-2012, 07:50 PM
possibly. i cant remember the tree situation around that spot. however the current spot can only really cater for about 3 around the fire.

23-06-2012, 12:49 PM
Come on guys look alive! What's the deali-o? Still on?

24-06-2012, 10:13 AM
