    Am I the only one who is almost packed and ready to go to the Moot?
    I find packing sorts out what I need to buy/repair/replace and as I only have one day next week that I can get to the shops (next Thurs) I thought to see what I needed good and early :)
    I hope my car is going to be big enough to cope with the load.... I have had a major clear out of clothing (too big for me now) and gear I have replaced with home made stuff or stuff more suited to my current needs - so the "Bring and Buy" is going to be well stocked!
    And then there are the toys to keep me amused during the quiet days....:eek:!

    I have got this right haven't I, it is a week Monday isn't it? :)

    I haven't even started thinking about it yet - maybe once I've got this weekend out of the way.

    Well, to be fair, most of my kit is in the one place so, other than that odd item that you know you've seen somewhere but can't find, I should be OK :)

    Ah - I use a variety of different kit for different events....
    Teaching kit, home "Basecamp" kit, Long term kit - ie Moot for a fortnight, weekend kit etc etc
    Different bits in different places.
    For an example - I only take my water barrel "Aqua - Roller" or something) for use at Dingly Dell....
    It needs de-infesting each year just before the Moot...

    As I've only been to the Winter Moot could someone explain what this Dingly Dell is all about please? :)

    As to what it's about it's where John, Biker, his wife Lyn and I camp for the duration of the moot.

    I thought I had everything sorted but yesterday the manager of the curry house gave me a load of barrels.

    I have now got to get them clean, then pack my kit in them...

    Why do I need three of those big supermarket bags of clothes?

    Oh, John and I have shared a bottle of malt around the fire - consequently, he may not be able to recognise me :)

    True, true, so very true ... but I will recognise the bottle!
    It may even match the one I will have on site! (if I can find it around here!)

    We are well and truly in packing mode. In fact I'm heading upstairs to sort some more stuff.

    Broch my train ticket is booked for next Monday. Not tomorrow. .. you got me going now! Had to double check! It's ok you got a week to pack. If you are anything like me I'm checking the weather forcast several times a day and putting the shorts and sun lotion in then taking them out... then putting them in again and wondering if you put the gas bottle in and taking the whole pack apart to check.... again. I have three lists as I often forget where it is if I make only one so forget to check something off the list as it goes in the pack then I'm wondering if its Tuesday or Friday and where did I put the train ticket..... oh the week before a trip is a nightmare of anticipation and excitement and panic. All part of the fun :)
