UK Camping Meetup August 26th 2011 Answered

Just musing on a new idea for a UK meet, in, say July/August 2011, this time camping somewhere. No ideas where or what to do, apart from integrating some of the camping 'ibles and outdoor-sy ibles.

Any interest in the concept ?

Perhaps the Peak District would make for a nice central place? I know of a field round the back of Mam Tor near Castleton?

No idea for what we could do, might be fun to get materials, rods, etc, and built our own communal shelter for the weekend? Having got normal tents to hide/sleep in?

*chuckle*, not having "read" the books, but having seen all the shows and animations, I didn't know he spelled it that way, cute.

IIRC, the soil is only a few inches deep...

Maybe you could bring a hammer and chisel?

(I could be wrong about the soil - I used to live a few miles from Mam Tor, but I never walked much up there.)

Definitely an acceptable option from this end.

(@ Steve - the idea I had probably won't pan out.)

I'll notify the solicitors in the morning to have to young lad disinherited.

Actually, it's one of the great joys of being a parent, like when your kid goes up on the world stage, forgets one of their lines in the annual school theatrical performance and shouts into the microphone, "OH CRA..."....wait, who were we talking about again?

Flamebait. The grown-ups here can all post grammatical sentences. The kiddies, from whichever continent, in general, can't.

True...
