    Then you were very lucky my friend Or you were on a good line. I'm travelling by train (Rotterdam - The Hague v.v.) about 3 times a week on average - 2 out of 5 the train is late ... 1 out of 40 the train is too early ... Bit of a shock when you realise the train already left when you walk on to the platform with in thought you still have 3 minutes left ...

    Hey guys,

    Back from a short vacation, I'm still interested in organizing this meet partly. I was thinking about a spot I know in Hilversum, its nice and central. (And rather close to amsterdam for those who come frome other countries).

    I'll check soon to find out what weekend is actually possible. Any chances of other people joining in from England?

    Hey brother,

    I'll be there, dad probably as well, and Mathieu (think I mentioned him to you) definetely wants to come.

    PS: Dad found some good Billycans in some store (Dille & Kamille), he's taking one with him for me to see if it's any good.

    You can count me in for some fishing info, either by rod or by setting a line. It would be "dry info"- if I remember correctly there's no fishing waters directly around that area.

    Pics at larger size? Go here: Flickr Pics of Hoorneboeg












    We could make T-shirts again......

    Sounds pretty good. Actually a home game for me since I live there.
    If I'm in the country that date I'll definitely be there. Might make it a case of being there actually.
    I walk past that place every day with the dog, it's a good site.

    A few people of the Dutch YMCA Outdoor are probably coming as well to see what's going on. So I think that we'll be having at least around 20 people during this weekend so far. As I've stated before, there's plenty of room to string your hammock or build your bivouac.

    Allright Tjin, I'll put you on the list, I hope you'll be there. Learned alot about technical flashlights the last time we met. You'd be more than welcome to just drop in whenever you have time.
