    Sounds good to me! Tried me hammock out last weekend. I froze! Need to sort out some insulation/wind protection underneath. Was great night though, 4.30am a deer walked past within 10 feet and saw a falcon take a kill at 6am. loved it. Carved my first kuksa next day from a burl I harvested. Its very rustic!

    Blimey, never used mine in the summer without my underquilt, that's worrying to hear you chilled on one of the warmest nights of the year!.. (I got my DD at christmas, so you can imagine what happened in January to me) ..noted.. never leave home without it!.. even in the summer!!

    I was shocked that I got so cold, mind you the wind picked up in the night blowing through the hammock!

    Gear Guru,
    I have no problem with youngsters coming - i dont recall the language being too fruity last time (so long as we stay off the grills and Mears topic!)
    All i would say i suppose is that there isnt that much to keep her occupied - unless she is happy in our little camp and of course there are lots of sharps about - but then i expect her to be used to that!

    Guys to clarify - im assuming most people will be charged 6, ie unless you come late saturday and leave sunday morning, even though its only a one night (no one has said anything about wanting to come down friday to me yet). I still think is exceptionally good value - for those that have not been there are showers and toilets included in that.

    Had confirmation from the site now too so it is all go go go!!!

    Im planing on having a bit of a whittle so if anyone does happen to come across any green logs sufficient for kuksa's etc it appreciate that. Otherwise maybe some knife handle work or maybe even a bow...
    Oh and trying out the new gillie kettle :-)

    Trying out my new fire stand grill from those two oven doors I aquired.
    New homemade tree huggers for my hammock/tarp butchered from an old foam bag.
    And some tiny sharps made from a clock makers tool kit that I'd like to try out on detailed carving!

    Same spot as last time booked Tim? I'll get the communial tarp up.. Hopefully a bit more stable this time!!

    Yes its the same spot - to those who have not been there before it is through the carpark (please park up tight it isnt very big) and left along the path past the shed/buildings and toilet then carry on to ur left and there is a fire scar and some big logs. - thats us (if wolfcrafter is there he has a nice big tarp which needs more than one person to put up - hint hint..for the early comers since i cant be there)

    Time; i had antisipated being there from 10:00 unfortunately i have to be somewhere in the morning :-( but will turn up about mid day. The site manager may turn up wanting some money - be nice to him (Tony, he popped over last time too)!

    See you all there!

    thanks for that Tim, will aim to be there around 10, unless Wolfcrafter is getting there earlier and wants a hand with the tarp??
