    Inspired by John, I've now got my Bushmoot project for this year - a nice table to go with our expanding camp kitchen!

    I'd better not recount Sarah's reaction. This is a decent, family-friendly forum after all.

    Thats nothing, our Tarptopia uses a 40litre tub full of cord and bungees..... Eight or nine tarps, 3 hammocks and 6 kit hammocks...... For just the three of us. Lol.

    Makes me feel less bad about our room full of outdoodsy gear and stacks of backpacks. We certainly don't have more than 6 or so tarps/bashas. Recently got a Dutch oven for when cooking over the firepit in the garden slash "could be useful at the bushmoot". Hope you all feel appropriately bad for being enablers ;D

    It's not always as easy as planning this far ahead Reddave. A lot depends upon who (tutor-wise) turns up when and what the majority want to do - we certainly try to pack as much in as we can and the "Workshops" page of www.Bushmoot.com has a idea of how much that entails. If there is something that you are desperate to do, mention it to the Boss (well, actually Shelly ) when you arrive and I'm sure we'll do what we can to keep you busy.

    There is of course the idea that no-one gets to do everything which ensures the ticket sales for next year!

    Fair point about tutors. It has, unfortunately, become second nature to look ahead for potential 'challenges' at work. This sometimes spill into the real world. Sorry.
    Don't point me to the workshops, I wanna do 'em all. OK, not kids craft.

    It's about 4 miles from the station to the campsite.

    As for lift, sorry but I doubt I'd have room in my car

    It looks like I can make this year in full - or at least far more than the 2 days I was able to make last year.... who's for a story or two? :-)

    Are there Exhibitors with a need for one or more part-time helper on their stall? Might be worth Tengue making some enquires with a view to limiting her expenditure.

    Just a thought

    It was evening all afternoon.
    It was snowing
    And it was going to snow.

    There aren't usually any exhibitors that attend the moot apart from Dave Budd and his stall/workshop is a one man band type.

    Sorry, I thought it had trade stalls rather like any Game Fair but with an area to chill and do bushcrafty things for the Weekend. Clearly I was wrong!

    No thats Wilderness Gathering. Bushmoot is more about coming together to meet and share skills and experience. Different vibe.
