    I'm always up for a meet too, but often as now is sadly the case with the upcoming event(s), work gets in the way at the last minute and I am unable to attend.

    So it would be a bit pointless of me to say 'Count Me In' at this juncture, but I will certainly register an interest to attend a mid winter meet, follow any discussion with interest, chip in now and then and maybe if the Gods are smiling on me, I might actually attend when whatever is organised rolls around.

    Fish for reference, I'm based about six miles south west of Chubbs... in a nicer part of Cornwall



    Having said that, I hope all who are lucky enough to attend this weekend, have a grand time, remember to take the odd picture (Yes, I know that is a bit rich coming from Mr Iforgottotakemycamerawithme) and share a tale or two with the rest of us.

    My avatar not me, it is Razor Ruddock (long story short, he played for Liverpool and that pic was the only one I could find with Bushy - Scouse / LFC connection, when I set up my account).

    So basically, I have no idea who the bird is, but if I ever make her acquaintance, I will encourage her to be my bushy substitute, for any meets I can not attend

    After not working on Sundays for ages, McDonalds have decided to schedule me work on the Sunday of this event. I have asked for it as paid holiday, as I do have holidays which I am entitled to.

    What I am going to do, is pay for the nights camp, then try my best to get down on Sunday, even if I end up leaving work early. But I will get down there!

    Just sat there with the missus and seen the weather for the weekend and oooh, theres going to be an Artic Blast hitting the whole country !!. Its not going to be too bad down here but it will be a tad cold during the early hours of Sunday morning.

    Because I hate the cold and my boy will be with me I have now changed what we were going to sleep in, from a tarp to a four man tent, a queensize airbed, a quilt underblanket, a Czech Bed Roll and a couple of extra wool blankets !!!!. This may be classed as poshcrafting and I wouldn't want to steal Martin's crown , but needs must, and I have a dodgy back !!!.

    So when we meet for the first time, don't take the p**s too much !!, blame it on the weather.

    Unfortunately Martin cannot make this one, so someone had to take his place didn't they!

    Large air-beds are not a good idea in really cold/minus temperatures but the good news is it won't be that cold!

    We're taking a tent to sleep in but, if I manage to fit a hammock in my pack would anyone be able to show me how to put it up? I know there are videos to watch but my brain doesn't work that way, I need to see it in the flesh I have a DD Travel Hammock and tarp, is there anything else I should have bought?

    I wouldn't worry about it, The whole idea of the meets are to swap ideas, learn and enjoy company and from what I have seen since joining this forum and watching sites vids they are a very friendly bunch. I'm quite sure there will be various people there who would love to show you the ropes (excuse the pun)
